As an LGBTQIA+ Simmer myself, I felt I had to pitch in here. Time for screenshots!

Spoiler:
Image
Yvonne Ferreira (left, blonde) and Lillian Newton (right, redhead) from my Oceanview BACC are the city's first married LGBTQIA+ couple. In my head, Lillian is pansexual, while Yvonne is a bit more toward the purely homosexual end of the spectrum. They currently live with their adopted sons Zephyr and Hyperion and robotic friend AXIOM.

Image
Victoria Star, my BACC founder. It hasn't been mentioned in the actual challenge posts yet, but as I've been writing her it's become pretty clear to me that she's asexual, and probably aromantic as well.

Image
My Simself! Being attracted pretty much exclusively to women, but not particularly interested in relationships, I identify as a gray-A/demi-lesbian. I came out of the closet when I was 17, and never looked back.

I played my grandsim Josefin's household. She's hetero, and her husband Wilhelm stood in the kissing booth for a while so she gave him a kiss. In the background I saw her bi sister Natalie. She went to the other booth and I had to take a pic. Doesn't Natalie look proud and confident? ^^

What a great theme! Here are some of my favourite LGBTQIA+ Sims!

Spoiler:
Image

First up is, well, my Simself. I've recently accepted that I am asexual so why not share that especially for Pride Month.

Image

Next up is my pansexual sim Oscar King from my BACC, here he is with his boyfriend Alfred (The redhead). I've never brought it up in the BACC but I've always thought of Oscar as a pansexual, it just seems to fit him.

Image

We stay in my BACC as visit Courtney Puckett(the redhead) and her wife Georgina.

Image

The final picture is of a couple that I hold very dear to my heart. Oscar and Neil Sparrow are my generation 3 Heir and Spouse. They had Four kids together and also raised the triplets Phoenix had from a previous marriage. They recently passed on in my game but they will always be one of my favourites :heartbeat:

I haven't touched my legacy in a while, but Halley is my favourite character by far. I put quite bit of myself into her storyline about discovering her sexuality (although I identify as bi, not gay), and honestly, it's the one thing that has me considering the possibility of picking it back up again.

As a biromantic asexual, it's no surprise I have a lot of LGBTQIA+ Sims!! I did try and tone it down to the Gordons only, otherwise I could've been here for days.

Spoiler:
Image
There's the Bi-Squad from Gen 7, Yvaine, Shakespeare, and Victoria :heart:

Image
The Gay Twins of Generation 6, Remus & Luna! (Remus was my heir, and he was one half of the most loving relationship I've ever seen)

Image
The 'Unknown-But-Married-A-Woman' Runaway Teen/Gen 6 spare, Ginny!!

Image
The Bisexual Disaster Crew from Generation 8, Allrianne, Marasi, and Lessie :D
(They're all Shakespeare's children!)

Image
The Awesome Asexuals, Lyra and myself! (Lyra married a man in my legacy and had three kids with him, but 90% of the time she just didn't really want to know him, so I always headcanoned [it's not a headcanon if I make the canon??] her as AroAce!)

Image
And my other favourite couple, Miamy (Mia [black hair] and Amy [ginger])! :heartbeat: :heartbeat:
Mia is Lyra's daughter!

Image
AND my Bisexual Mad Scientist Galadriel, from my EPIC!

I haven't been on here in a while, and glad to see this thread when I finally came back. As pansexual, I have a lot of LGBTQIA+ sims (feels like most people posting here are saying something similar...). In my EPIC legacy, we haven't had a male spouse in 5 generations, since the female heirs keep ending up gay, and Seaweed (gen 5 heir) was bi.

Spoiler:
Gen 6 heir, Velma, marrying Story Moss
Image

Gen 8 heir, Crystal, with her wife Raspberry Rose Tart
Image
Image

Gen 5 heir, Seaweed, with Brennan Skipton, one of his LTW conquests
Image

My Baby Boom couple, Kyra Maloney and Cristina Winchester

I love this thread! I pretty much exclusively play my legacy family, but we've had quite a few LGBTQIA+ Langurds:

Spoiler:
Most recently there's my super aesthetic Gen. 7 power couple, Kip and Jada (a.k.a. Black & White and Sepia).
Image
Image

Mandrake from Gen. 5 was openly bisexual, though he had terrible luck in love and this fool Tariq treated him like garbage.
Image

Fiasco, little Gen. 6 cinnamon roll, was gay and a master date crasher.
Image
Image

I always saw Drachma from Gen. 4 as Ace.
Image

Razor (Gen. 2) would never cheat on his Arabella, but after her death it became obvious that he swung both ways.
Image

Last but not least - unrelated to her being a total shit disturber (I just really enjoy this sequence), Katana from Gen. 3 was probably best described as aromantic pansexual. Her partners included two men, a woman, and (unofficially) a crypt mummy.

I let my sims choose their own spouse with very minimal pushing from me.
It's not often I get a same sex couple and this was my first and only so far in my Sarnello legacy family.

Spoiler:
Hugo was my 3rd gen heir and Cruz actually pursued him. I actually thought that Cruz would end up with Hugo's twin sister but it turned out better.
They had a beautiful family together through a surrogate mother.

Hugo and Cruz

Their first kiss :heart:

I generally randomize gender preferences, so I've got some pictures to share here. May have gone a bit overboard. :D Mostly from my long-standing legacy, the Bookacies.

Spoiler:
First up, I think my first gay couple, from the pre-randomization era, Bill and Ira (generation B spare and spouse):
Image

Bill somehow had a gender preference on his own, and to this day I'm not sure why. He did have 10 nice points and his college Greek House did have a male cow mascot, so I have my suspicions though. In any case, he found Ira, who was perfect for him, and they were the sweetest couple. While digging, I also found their wedding picture.
Image

I also have this servo-vampire pairing that'll probably hang around until the end of the alphabetacy (so 20+ generations), seeing that they're both immortal and involved in plot, George (the servo) and Count Pao.
Image

Late generation B, there was a set of twins in the extended family, Barbara and Beatrice, who are both into ladies. Barbara married her sweetheart Tara (top), Beatrice and her partner Brenda (bottom) prefer to just live together.
Image
Image

Then there's of course the trio of Carl and his two ladies Audrey (left) and Veronica (middle).
Image

Carl and Veronica have twins together, and Carl and Audrey have one son. All three consider the three kids as theirs. They're very close in age, Audrey and Veronica were pregnant at the same time.
Image

A bonus picture of the trio, from Carl's cousin's wedding. (Oh, and on the foreground, I just realized the lady on the left is Claire, so Bill and Ira's adopted daughter, and on the right is Joy, the mother of the twins Barbara and Beatrice.)
Image

While digging that last picture out, I realized that the cousin mentioned, Cyrus (my generation C spare) should also be in here. He and his wife Chris may seem ordinary enough, but I know better. Cyrus technically randomized bi, but through his life he's bolted for very, very few sims. He was pretty oblivious to Chris' flirting too, although when Chris came clear about her feelings, he happily went along with it. In my headcanon, he's probably either grey a or demi.
Image

Finally, the youngest of the party. Aaron Davidson (from my BaCC) is my first sim to officially randomize ace. He's still a teenager, so we'll see where life takes him later on.

Okay some quick background for this before I post it:

Due to a freaking Windows 10 update, I've lost the sim who was going to be my first lesbian heiress. I have never played a same sex couple before and I was really looking forward to writing one. I don't have randomized gender preferences set or the Sims 3 equivalent of ACR. I am sad that I won't get to write her story now. This was going to be my seventh gen Monster Mash heiress Rosemary Pryce and her love interest, a made over Bella Goth.

Ooh, I've been away and I didn't see this before. Thanks for the heads-up. I have some. I, like a lot of people I think, just "feel" the sexuality of some of my characters as part of their personality, and it seems perfectly ordinary to me, so I have quite a few LGBTQIA+ characters. Here are some of my favorites.
Spoiler:
This is Bacopa Legasea from my Sims 2 matriarchy, The Legasea. He was the sixth generation heir and aromantic asexual, but he had three children by aliens. He was a warm and affectionate father and grandfather and was protective of his half-siblings. He just wasn't interested in a partner. :)
Image

Arthur Masterpiece, on the left, was a gen. 2 spare of my Sims 2 legacy Falling to Masterpieces. He was absolutely dorky and awkward in all the best ways, and he charmed his husband Aaron with his strange mannerisms. They had a son.
Image

On the right is the founder of my Sims 4 legacy The Allen Invasion, Sasha Allen. She's actually a remake of a sim from my Sims 2 The Vermachtnis Legacy, in which she dated and married men. In this life, she married Wendy, a lesbian here, so my headcanon is that Sasha is pansexual and more influenced by the personality of her partners. They have six children and Sasha is a successful yet aggressive doctor.
Image

And here's one of my favorite power couples of all times: Laurel (the fourth generation heiress) and Kori of my Sims 4 The Gregory Legacy. They were childhood sweethearts, so though Laurel is bi, she never dated men or expressed that in the story, because her heart always belonged to Kori. Kori is lesbian. I love these two and their relationship so much that I even picked out a "their song" for them. :heartbeat: They had four children. Laurel was a great mother and mastered every instrument besides being a successful musician. Kori is literally an evil genius and topped the villain career, passing on her evil gene to all four of her children, amusingly enough.
Image

Thanks for this thread!
