South Park Rally features a character named 'Big Gay Al', who is a stereotypically flamboyant gay man. He also has a minor appearance in South Park: The Stick of Truth.

South Park: The Fractured But Whole builds on The Stick of Truth, where the players had to play as a male character. The Fractured but Whole offers players the opportunity to play as a woman by 'retconning' gender in the game: the player has a conversation with the school counsellor, Mr Mackay, where the player-character is able to declare that they are, in fact, a girl. Mr Mackay then asks the player-character to clarify, determining whether they are cis or trans. The game also allows the player to indicate that they are neither a boy or a girl, selecting 'other'. In future dialogue, other characters will make reference to the player-character's gender in conversation, but it is unclear just how much the gameplay will be impacted by this choice; other choices made in character creation will impact game mechanics (such as skin tone being a direct reflection of the game's difficulty level).
