The character's pansexuality and gender fluidity are not addressed in the movies (comics only), but they are still extremely queer-coded

I can think of at least 3 LGBT characters who are killed in the show. All of their deaths are graphic, which is in keeping with the graphic nature of the show.

While death is very common in Homestuck (though not always permanently - death serves a few functions in the story) and there are a lot of LGBT characters, none of the characters are killed BECAUSE of their gender and sexuality.

In season 7 the ex-fiance of the main character is murdered on screen after only being introduced episodes before in one scene. It happens in season 7 episode 8, between the minutes 3:20-4:50. This can be extremely triggering and follows the Bury Your Gays Trope.

Avoidable. In one sequence, the player character may confront and fight two women in a romantic relationship and can choose to kill or spare them. If the player kills only one of the women, her partner commits suicide in front of the player out of despair.

Depending on your final decision, yes. Another character that was implied to be LGBT+ in the main game [and more or less confirmed to be in the prequel game depending on how you play it] has died by the time that the main story has started.

Rose Quartz was strongly implied to be bisexual and dies permanently before the events of the show, and her girlfriend Pearl grieves her, but it should be noted many characters are LGBT and continue to survive and be happy in love.

In season 6, Tara's girlfriend Denise suddenly gets shot through the head with an arrow. In season 8, Aaron's boyfriend Eric gets attacked or bitten and turns into a walker later on. I think there might be more but I'm not sure.

In Part 5, two male lovers are tortured and then killed by the italian mafia. While the actual killing is not shown, there is a panel of the aftermath, which is very graphic. In Part 7, a bisexual woman is killed.

In San Junipero two gay characters die, but their relationship is framed as something very positive, they both die of oldage and they find love in the "afterlife" so imo it does not fall into the bury your gays trope

A male LGBT warlord is already dead at the beginning of the show. The Spellman family's home is a mortuary so they are tasked with preparing the body. Another LGBT human is possessed by a demon and dies.

[Spoiler] It's quite true that LGBT characters die, but the rundown of precise identities by the previous commenter is somewhat misleading, making it seem like all of these queer characters are potentially progressive, positive representation suffering only from a case of Bury Your Gays. Hanamura Teruteru is a jokey horndog character of the would do anything with a hole and also probably anything without one" type, a fairly tired stereotype of bi/pan people. Mikan Tsumiki's a very fetish-y character aimed at a specific straight male playerbase, and her f/f scenes (mostly in the DR3 anime) are blatantly intended as fanservice for that audience. Mikan fanservice scenes can be extremely uncomfortable, especially for female/female-aligned viewers, although this is very much a YMMV matter and there's no category for "creepy alienating male gaze" on this site.
