Inclusivity is something Riot Games have been working hard on in recent years, and K'Sante is another champion who will have players feel as if League is their home.
The last top lane champion Riot Games added to League of Legends was Gwen, a top lane skirmisher. She is a far cry from what the top lane archetype is, and the new champion coming to League of Legends may fulfill it, finally.
That champion is K'Sante and, if the release of the teaser is anything to go by, it should be going live soon.
K'Sante's voice actor, DeObia Oparei, revealed that K'Sante would be the first LGBTQ black Champion Warrior in League of Legends.
With this, K'Sante will be the seventh LGBTQIA champion Riot Games have placed in the game, whose sexual orientation is openly confirmed and not under speculation:
- Diana (Gay) – Confirmed
- Leona (Gay) – Confirmed
- Graves (Gay) – Confirmed
- Nami (Bisexual) – Confirmed
- Neeko (Gay) – Confirmed
- Twisted Fate (Bisexual) – Confirmed
However, you will notice that all of these champions are either some sort of non-human or are the run of the mill caucasian. K'Sante on the other hand represents his roots proudly, which are heavily inspired by African culture.
Though the collaboration with Lil Nas X did not bear fruit when it comes to giving us a good anthem, this facet of it certainly did!
