Police Quest: Open Season features a movie theatre owner who is revealed to be a cross-dresser, although the scene where this is revealed does feature transphobic violence (content warning). There is debate and confusion as to whether Detective John Carey's ex-partner was a cross-dresser or transgender, or perhaps neither, just as there are debates regarding whether there is a 'transgender bar' in the game, or 'gay records' in the music store. There is one implicitly gay character, a stereotypical hustler who stands outside the stores and asks the player if they are '...looking for a girl... or a boy...?'
