'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' actually does have a gay couple in the movie

A lot of fans were upset because Finn and Poe didn't hookup in Disney's 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi.'

What a lot of these fans don't realize is that there actually was a gay couple in the movie.

A Star Wars superfan on Twitter revealed the news in a tweet that went viral.

The fan explained that a pair of porgs seen snuggling in the background in the accompanying GIF are actually gay because "male porgs have orange plummage around their eyes" and the two snuggling porgs both have orange plummage.

The fan went on to explain that this was done intentionally, since the official Star Wars app features a straight porg couple because only one of the porgs has orange plummage around their eyes, making the other porg female.

Hooray for representation!
