Netflix recently dropped Season 7 of Voltron: Legendary Defender on their streaming platform. Some fans, however, took issue with the queer representation in the season.
Warning: The following article contains spoilers for Season 7 of Voltron.
Earlier this summer at San Diego Comic-Con, fans found out one of the main characters of the show, Shiro, is gay. They also found out he’s in an interracial relationship with Adam.
Or, well, was.
The start of the season revealed Shiro previously lived with his partner/fiancé Adam on Earth before heading out to space for an ill-fated mission.
Then they went with the Bury Your Gays trope when it was revealed Adam died in a subsequent invasion of Earth. Shiro never even got to say goodbye to him.
