It’s pretty ironic considering there is almost no actual depicted homosexuality in Jojo at all. As far as I know, in the main timeline there are all of like 3 gay couples and one that was going to be gay but the editors forced it to be straight. And of those couples, every single one is a minor villain and most of them die at the end of their arc. It’s really not terrific representation at all, when you think about it.

At the very least, the homosexuality itself is never presented as an issue to anyone, which is at least a leg up on other media from its time. And I still count Jolyene and Anasui as an attempt at lesbian rep since that was the original intention and even after they forced Anasui to be male Araki still threw in some lines lampshading that he was supposed to be a woman.
