** Andrew is the king of this trope. He all but said he was in love with Warren, and did as he said because "He promised we'd be together, but he was just using me. He never really loved . . . hanging out with us." (He changed direction of that last sentence rather uncomfortably, so it seems likely he was [[TransparentCloset closeted]]). He has rather clear moments of lust over Spike, Xander, and [[Series/StarTrekEnterprise Jonathon Archer]]. WordOfGod confirms that he was at least bisexual, but never got around to acknowledging it to himself -- thus why it was never acknowledged on the show. The actor who played him is gay, so had some fun with adding this to the character. Then there's his ''Angel'' appearance (where he was flanked by two MsFanservice examples), and then again in the comics, which had him as unimpressed with walking in on two girls making out and implying that his ''Angel'' cameo was a feint.

** Gale Boetticher is vaguely effeminate or at least CampStraight from the start, with interests in karaoke and opera. That's not confirmation in and of itself, but In Season 4 [[spoiler:when he dies]] the gangbanger who had been assigned to keep track of him through all of Season 3 has a [[HoYay clearly emotional reaction that suggests much more than a professional relationship]]. In Gale's lab notes, his dedication to "W.W." sounds more like it's referring to a lover than a mentor. But it could also be referring to WaltWhitman, the source of the quote.

* ''SpinCity'': One episode featured the Mayor's nephew, who was basically a walking CampGay stereotype that loudly and obnoxiously hit on women at every opportunity, worked as a "closet organiser" and said the word "closet" roughly every three lines. Subverted at the end when he confides to Carter (the local [[TokenMinority token gay]]) that he was in fact 100% straight, but adopted an elaborate deception to create ambiguity as to his sexual orientation, because his parents desperately wanted to set him up with a partner (of either gender), and he preferred being alone.

* ''Series/TheAmandaShow'': Had Penelope, who wanted to be Amanda's [[StalkerWithACrush "best friend"]] really badly. The website plays it even thicker with tons of captions over her affections for Amanda, her saying she doesn't find a male actor on the show attractive, and her all but outright drooling over cheerleaders. GettingCrapPastTheRadar, maybe?

As James Gillies and his best friend Robert Perry depart from the police station for the first time in "Big Murderer on Campus," Campus", James touches Robert's back in a manner which may suggest that there is a greater intimacy between the two of them. Inspector Brackenreid wonders out loud, "Just good pals, or something more?"more?" [[spoiler:Even less ambiguous by Season 7, where Gillies kisses a struggling Murdoch straight on the lips. However, it could have been just his strategy to shock him as it was his last shot at escaping.]]
** Mr. Carducci in "This One Goes to Eleven" is a dandy and has many flamboyant mannerisms, of note, James Pendrick comments that Carducci "...takes an interest in young, male painters".
** Katie in [[spoiler:SweetPollyOliver]] episode "Victor, Victorian" seems highly interested in the fact that Julia is "an unwed doctor living alone", mentions that marriage leaves her "bored and unhappy" and has no qualms about inviting Julia into the secret club. The inevitable betrayal by Julia gets the doctor a disapproving glare from Katie and called "you rat" (not unlike the reaction by Jeffrey when his gay tennis club is busted by Murdoch, in whom he had taken an interest in "Till Death Do Us Part").
** After the bombing at the start of "War on Terror", Constable Crabtree and Dr. Grace are canvassing the neighbourhood shops when the doctor tries on a hat at a milliner's establishment. The fastidious milliner scolds her sharply for even touching the merchandise, then immediately turns to fawn over the constable, encouraging him to try on a hat and urging the reluctant Crabtree to come to his new shop's opening gala moving sale. As they're walking away, Emily observes that George's forceful manner was more successful at getting the man to give them information than anything she could do. Later, Emily slyly says the shopkeeper would be disappointed to know George is attracted to women.
