Drew Leinonen’s friend is fighting to make him the first LGBT Star Wars movie character

Josh Yehl is petitioning Disney and Lucasfilm to dedicate an out LGBT character to his friend, Christopher “Drew” Leinonen, who was killed at Pulse. Yehl hopes that having a gay character either inspired by or named after Leinonen could counteract some of the hate and homophobia in the world. There’s a Change.org petition but it still needs help.
