If you want to see more representation in the media, go watch Critical Role.

There are multiple bi, gay, and lesbian characters, some of whom are in healthy relationships.  AND IT’S CANON.

There are multiple POC characters who kick ass and are seen as equal to everyone else.  AND IT’S CANON.

There are multiple genders portrayed throughout the series, and again, portrayed as equals (men, women, nonbinary).  AND IT’S CANON.

Just go watch Critical Role.  It’s amazing.

You know, now that Scanlan and Kaylie are on the road this is a great time to sneak them in as a cameo into a d&d campaign…

Your party meets two gnomes travelling on the road, one of which has an expensive-looking rapier at his side. He introduces himself (this is always a fake name, get creative).

Your party hits it off with them and they offer to share a campsite for the night. Your party agrees and begins to set up bedrolls when the gnome laughs and says “No no, friends, we’ll camp in style tonight, my treat.” and summons a glowing purple portal leading to a beautifully-adorned mansion.

He treats the party to dinner (chicken, of course) but states that there’s only the two bedrooms, but your party can camp in the foyer.

In the morning you part ways, wondering who the strange gnomes were. They’re certainly more powerful than they looked.
