It’s not the first time Star Wars has featured LGBT characters, but an upcoming novel will be the first to introduce one into Star Wars canon as it now stands.
Paul S. Kemp’s Lords of the Sith, out in April, features Moff Mors, a lesbian and “Imperial who has made some very serious mistakes but is an incredibly capable leader and spends much of the book working hard to prevent absolute failure,” Bryan Young at Big Shiny Robot reports.
“There should be diversity in Star Wars,” Del Rey editor Shelly Shapiro told Young for Full of Sith. And what more is there to say than that?

This is fantastic.
But let us never forget Juhani. Let us never forget Goran Beviin and Medrit Vasur.
Whatever canon is or isn’t, these characters matter. They were needed, and they were wonderful.
Bring on Moff Mors. She’ll be in good company.
