about galra Keith
so does anyone else see Keith being galra as a little bit of a metaphor for being gay?? I mean it’s something he thought about for a while, but could only recently put a name on (which is similar to my experience). Some people didnt accept him at first, namely Allura.
He also has some quotes that a lot of gay people can relate to, specifically “I didn’t just turn galra!” which is really similar to the “i didn’t just turn gay.“ When Keith rescues a soldier in episode 9 and that soldier turns out to be galra, Hunk asks “so do you all just know each other?” which i thought was really funny because keith’s face afterward was a face i had both made and seen when asked the same question about being gay.
all in all i related to keith’s experience figuring out that he was galra a lot when it comes to my own experience finding out i was gay
