Well, the franchise has always had sexuality as an undertone. Bobby "coming out" to his parents. The "mutant cure." Among many other incidents. Bryan Singer used this to 'set it in reality' more. I didn't really see any character as being overtly sexually different. Beast's story did typify a LGBT albeit more bi, at least from my experience, journey of self-acceptance.
