“Game of Thrones” Season 6 spoilers reveal new lesbian love between Daenerys Targaryen and Yara Greyjoy. Author George R. R. Martin says he created a few bisexual and lesbian characters in the plot.
When the fan asks the author if there are lesbian characters specifically Asha, he immediately says he included some in the novel but he denies Yara Greyjoy (Asha in the novel) as one of them.
The inquiry is based on “Game of Thrones” Season 6 trailer where Yara Greyjoy was kissing a woman in the tavern. Yara is Asha in the novel, who is sexually active and adventurous.
“I have a number of lesbian and bisexual women in the novels (and a couple who experiment) but Asha is not one of them,” Martin cites.
However, he admits he already forgot some details though he knew he created them. Perhaps, creating Yara as a lesbian is one of the novel’s lesbian and bisexual characters. He says, “Unless I am forgetting something.”
One big implication of having lesbians and bisexual in the series is the population of men and women.
There is the lesser number of women in “Game of Thrones” Season 6 series than men. Thus, an androgynous female character seems common and highly observable.
The source also notes that “Game of Thrones” Season 6 as a television series is quite different from George R. R. Martin’s original novel. This happened to Asha’s character in the series.
According to the source, showrunners David Benioff and D. B. Weiss change Yara’s original character in the novel to a queerer character type on television. Maybe her sexual adventures and preference are changed as well.
This is what the fans see with the newly forming lesbian love between Yara Dreyjoy and Daenerys Targaryen. According to RadioTimes, many fans notice the former is flirting with Daenerys in the “Game of Thrones” Season 6 last episode.
One of them cites, “I never demand, but I’m up for anything really. – Yara Greyjoy, player of the year.” The said tweet come along with an image of Yara and Daenerys smiling together.
