Ladies, theydies, gentlemen, and queers — start your engines! Vin Diesel, a.k.a. Dom Toretto, has just announced that the title for the upcoming tenth Fast and Furious movie is fittingly Fast X.

The movie is already adding superstars Jason Momoa and Brie Larson, but where’s the queer talent? The Fast and Furious movies are one of the best, and most diverse, box office film franchises we have, but the one thing they definitely need more of is LGBTQ+ talent and characters.
Yes, bi actress Michelle Rodriguez is one of the franchise's main characters and gay actor Luke Evans has starred as one of the villains, but that’s about it when it comes to queer stars in the Fast movies. So we’ve got some ideas of who they should add. We’re not saying everyone in the upcoming additions to the films should be gay, just that a lot of them should be.
Here are sixteen LGBTQ+ actors we’d die to see driving cars in the Fast and Furious universe!
Here’s the scene: the crew are walking up to a garage to meet a new super-mechanic who’s gonna provide their cars with the ultimate upgrade. As they walk in, they see someone bent over, working on an engine, with the thickest cake they’ve ever seen sticking out. Who does that cake belong to? Harvey Guillén, of course!
