Same-sex intimacy is extremely repressed in Dinotopia as a whole, as are gender identities and sexualities that differ from cisgendered intra-species heterosexuality. However, in large cities minority sexual communities have formed and grown large enough to be somewhat tolerated, unofficially. Drag shows and gay bars have become an infamous part of the night life in Sauropolis, for example. In Waterfall City, drag shows are considered a form of art and therefore ‘deserving’ of a place in the local culture. However, queens and kings who dare to cross-dress offstage are vilified.
