Polygon spoke with the game's design director Greg Street and asked if there would be any point where non-straight characters would be created for the game. This question was partially prompted by the somewhat recent reveal of Overwatch's Tracer as a lesbian.
Street responded by saying that Riot "owe[s] it to the players and [...] to the world to do something like that." However, he notes that he'd rather not do it in a force way, adding he's "sure [they'll] do it at some point" but that doesn't know what character or when.
According to the article, when it does happen, it will probably be via storytelling outside the game.
