So, first off, I'm planning on writing an episodic series. The first episode mostly consists of you meeting the main characters for the rest of the series. One of them (or more, but it's not very important) is gay. Some context: the society he lives in has never looked down upon homosexuality, and him 'coming out' would insignificantly, if at all, affect how others feel about him. I have a nice short scene where he's talking with his ex ,who is still a good friend, where he is (subtley) revealed to be gay which would take place in the first episode. So, my question is: should I reveal his sexuality in the first episode so my readers to be will know right away that there will be homosexual relationships in this series.? Or, should I wait some amount of episodes so I could show this characters strengths and weaknesses and then reveal that he is gay. To be clear, his sexuality is unimportant to his character (though I will be weaving some realtionships throughout the series). And, the affect of his reveal would be minor in-story but might be pretty big to the reader.
