GLAAD (Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) has given a special recognition award to Dragon Age: Inquisition. The 26th Annual GLAAD Media Awards, which has a laundry list of award categories, including comics, singled out the BioWare RPG from the video game pack.

Inquisition featured the first “fully gay” characters in the series. Straight and bisexual characters have been a BioWare standard for over a decade.
