With the recent video from Riot Games teasing the new champion K'Sante, we are dying to see what more the champion has to offer. The latest update on the champion reveals that they will be bringing more representation to the LGBTQIA+ community, as the new top laner will be the first LGBTQ black champion in League of Legends.

We are expecting a new champion, K'Sante, soon to join the rest of the squad on the Summoner's Rift. 

All we have known of the champion thus far is that he will be a top lane champion, he will have a large weapon called Ntofo that can change its shape, and we know he comes from and protects the city-state, Nazumah.

This isn’t the first time League of Legends has created champions belonging to the LGBTQIA+ community.

We love that Riot Games is working on bringing more representation of such an essential topic to League of Legends, and we are very excited to see what more the champion has to offer once more information is released.
