Orlando: LGBT “Star Wars” Tribute

A fan petition has been set up to ask “Star Wars” producers Lucasfilm to create the franchise’s first LGBT character in honor of one of the victims of the Orlando nightclub shooting. Drew Leinonen (pictured) was among the 49 people shot dead – along with his boyfriend, Juan Ramon Guerrero – at the Pulse nightclub in June. Leinonen’s friend and fellow “Star Wars” devotee Joshua Yehl is behind the post on change.org.
