One of the two playable protagonists of Tell Me Why is Tyler, a trans man. The story is not primarily about him being trans, but there are some light interactions with other characters' awkwardness about it, and a reveal of a character initially pushing his parents to conversion therapy and apologizing for it. There is also a gay male NPC, Michael, who Tyler can flirt and pursue a relationship with, but this is optional. Another female NPC mentions her time attending a group for queer individuals, and discloses to Tyler that she is bisexual.
