Alfred doesn't really qualify as a drag queen. While he was dressing as a woman, he exhibited dissociative identity disorder. He didn't dress as a woman to be/feel/live as a woman, he actually -thought- he was his sister and, during those times, treated his sister like an entirely different person. It's the same thing Norman Bates suffered from in the movie Psycho, which is what the idea came from.
I don't think it's something that Capcom could even take seriously or write seriously at all and make a big deal about it, if not make it a bad guy which would cause a neagtive backlash......plus the closet we got to a gay character was Alfred, while not being gay himself, but running around dressing as his sister was just....ewww (plus, you could tell Capcom was teaseing the "incest" angle there with Alfred even thought he didn't, but was sure as hell implied)
and no to Alice, or even Capcom version of her, she just turn out to be the same character, and you'll have casual fans of the movies wanting game Alice to be more like her.....plus how many main characters does the RE series have that they do nothing with besides Chris,Leon,Jill,Claire,and Ada??.......... too many to count
and the last thing on movie characters the character Capcom even used for there own was the Red Queen in RE U.C., but rather then being a crazy A.I from the movies. It was just V.I computer database that Wesker needed since it had info on just about anything Umberlla, and as soon as Wesker gained it Capcom has never brought it up again thank god
on the other hand Capcom would make damn sure to remind you that the character is gay
like blatently so
every chance they got
see: the Street Fighter games
and to the poster who mentioned Sheva and Josh not being stereotypes, most people think of the American stereotype when they think of black stereotypes, and there's no reason either of them would act that way being from africa
also, while stupid, capcom isn't stupid enough to make a character who was given a bigger role in response to bloated claims of racism, a stereotypical personality.
hell they made her red-boned so she could appeal to everyone, I'm guessing
