    Excuse me? John Boyega is gay in real life? Can you cite this somewhere reliable?

    It should also be noted that on a different note, we are how many films into the Marvel Cinematic Universe and not one opening gay actor or LGBT character represented on screen. 17 films. Not one actor or character. Starting to get far beyond any sort of believable coincidence for me....

    As for the topic at hand, I do agree with several people who have said the film doesn't really comment either way and all interpretations are valid. I personally enjoy the idea that they are romantically involved. It's fine with me and somewhat endearing. I relate to the characters even a bit more because of it.

    The two things aren't mutually exclusive.

    Is Aphra bi? I only recall her ever showing interest in women? I'm fine either way but I haven't seen any more evidence that Aphra likes men than Han does.
    Can someone provide a scan to back up Aphra's bisexuality?

    People of the same gender can be best friends without being into each other. Shocking I know.

    And they can also be lovers. Both things happen.

    Not one person in the history of our species has ever said otherwise.

    I like the concept of them as brothers/friends, too.

    At all rates, it goes to show what some good acting can make people question. The Force works in mysterious ways. ;)

    Maybe I got it wrong. I have not yet read Aphra I just know she falls under the LGBTQ community and somewhere i heard that she was Bi.

    I have heard other people say she's bi, but I've never seen her show romantic interest in a man.
    I read the trades so I'm always a few months behind, but unless something's happened soon, that's what it is.
    I'm not saying she's definitively not bi, just that so far she's shown as much interest in men as Han ever did. That could always change, and it wouldn't surprise me if she did, but she's been around for awhile now without it happening.

    Where did I say they were? Nowhere. I just saw them as warriors who shared a bond, but not in a sexual way. Geez.
