Game of Thrones was a platform where real-life social issues were projected, that have been prevailing since medieval times. George R. R. Martin, the creator of the show, showed his support for the LGBTQ groups with the means of various amazing characters throughout the series. He is quite vocal about his support off-screen as well. Martin recently wished his fans all around the world on the occasion of Pride month on his official Twitter account.

Martin shared a picture of Ser Loras Tyrell, a bisexual knight from his novel. It was a concept art made by the CMON game design crew. He quoted, “Happy Pride Month, Everyone! Sir Loras in all his Rainbow Guard glory from the
Game design crew. #pride”
There were some who were trolling the veteran author. One pointed out how Martin misspelled Ser as ‘Sir‘. Martin made fun of him by calling him a social media minion.

The sparkling world of celebrities is fashion prone, with all the latest items from the greatest brands right at their disposal. Even though the style statement on Game of Thrones was highly inspired by the medieval period, it can be seen outside of museums and Comic Cons as well. Jessica Rowe, the former TV presenter, shared a photo on her Instagram of herself. She wore a big cosy coat – likely a faux fur piece. And she compared herself to the famous Game of Thrones character Jon Snow.
She added a bit of glamour to her look with a belt around her waist to cinch the jacket and a pair of tights with boots. The blonde beauty’s post featured a picture of Game Of Thrones character Jon Snow (played by Kit Harington) wearing a similar fur coat.
In the caption, she asked her followers: “Who wore it better?? Fashun sweetie’ along with the hashtags ‘#craphousewife’ and ‘#winterishere.”
Jessica’s sassy fashion post comes after she caught up with Sunrise executive producer Michael Pell, earlier this week. It seems like Game of Thrones fever is still on, and might rank up a notch once House of The Dragon is released.
Game of Thrones was also featured recently in a statement given by White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki. Do you think Jessica’s get-up is anywhere close to Jon Snow? Talk to us in the comments below!
Fantasy epic Game of Thrones has become a pop culture icon due to its massive popularity in the past decade. It is no brainer that the hugely famed series finds its way into being mentioned on various occasions. From politics to entertainment to sports, the show has often been compared with real-life situations. Channel Nine commentator Phil Gould has been ridiculed online for quoting Game of Thrones in his State of Origin pre-game speech.
Gould took to the field at Townsville’s Country Bank Stadium to deliver his last thoughts. Moments before the Blues took on the Maroons on Wednesday night.
While praising the players for their ‘bravery’, the former NSW coach said their courage in the face of fear. It could be related to a passage he once read in the novels – which were turned into the hit HBO television series.
“There was a passage I read in the Game of Thrones many years ago of a conversation between the father and his son,” he said.
“The son asked is it possible for a man to still be considered brave when on the inside he is truly afraid? To which his father replied – when you’re truly afraid, that is the only time a man can be brave and that’s what you will see tonight.”
“Nerves, insecurity, fear, it will give way to courage and bravery. It will give way to the commitment you have to your teammates and your state. It will give way to the commitment you have to do whatever is necessary to win.”
“Why? Because that’s what Origin players do. And above all else, these boys want to be Origin players.”
