Katie: Will there be any queer characters on RWBY--any bi or--lesbian--
Monty: Sure. Absolutely. The best part about that is, you know, maybe they're there now because they're kids. We're on a path to try and help them discover themselves, so, I mean, I don't even think we need to make that decision right away because as we write these characters, we learn about them and help them figure themselves out. They're very real to us. We're definitely not opposed to it. I--a lot of us are for it, even. I have some cast members and some crew members who are like 'this would be really cool' but the thing is we can't just shove it out there. It has to be earned, which is the better way to do it, and a lot of these characters we try and look at them outside of their genders. We'll want to do what's natural for them and best.
