I think you should just write the characters normally and if you want to include relationship status then just make it part of the story like you would normally. I don't think you should feel the need to make it the central part of the character. Heterosexuality isn't the central part of most well written characters.
With all the b$#*&$$$ LGBTs go through, it can feel cathartic to have a character who is really gay, and is damn well going to be public, because it's okay to go around being really gay, and damnation to all the haters. It also feels good to have a character who strongly represents who you are, which straight people get a ton more than LGBT people.
I would also ask if heterosexuality is not a central part of James Bond or Conan the Barbarian.
