We all know how sparsely populated Hollywood is when it comes to JLGBTQIA+ folks. Rarely do we see a pair of star crossed transgender or otherkin lovers receiving the representation they desperately need on our screens. Well things seem to be looking up. In a stunning turn of events, Rise of Skywalker director JJ Abrams came out and revealed to our eager journalists that Palpatine did indeed have an intensely sexual relationship with Kylo Ren!
We met with a die hard Star Wars fan who has just recently found out this news to see what sme thinks about the situation.
I as a transgender gay woman of color felt so included when I found out that Palpatine was gay. It really transformed my view of the movie and made me feel included. It was at that moment that I became a Star Wars fan. I was so inspired that I legally changed my last name to Palpatine.

As revealed by J.J. Abrams, Palpatine was previously in a relationship with Supreme Leader Snoke who actually underwent transgender surgery to become a woman. The purpose of this transition was so that Snoke zirself could be pregnant with Palpatine’s child! Consequently zirs death really hit him hard and poor Palpatine thought he would never recover. That is until he met Kylo Ren. Kylo was quite the fan of Palpatine’s unlimited power and so he desired to see more of this Sith temptress’ dark side.
This dynamic pair of lovers met when Palpatine rescued Kylo Ren from Starkiller base and they were very close friends ever since. J.J. Abrams himself even alluded to them possibly having a very flirtatious affair behind Snoke’s back.S was aware of this and hated his son for being gay. That is why he sent Kylo Ren away in the first place. Honestly, I don’t blame Kylo for killing his homophobic, straight white father for his bigoted ways. Another win for the JLBGTQIA+ community.
All we can hope for is to see Kylo and Palpatine warm our hearts by kissing passionately in the movie. That would go down in the greatest moments of cinema history.
