* Let's not forget about Enobarbus either - he certainly seems to have unrequited feelings for Antony. When he deserts him in a weak moment, he pretty much instantly regrets it, and eventually dies of a broken heart, with Antony's name on his lips.

* William "ZerothLawOfTropeExamples" Shakespeare. "Shall I compare thee to a summers day?" wasn't written about a woman, you know. Several of his plays also have a male character wooing a female character who is [[RecursiveCrossdressing both ''played'' by a man (often young men or boys whose voices haven't changed yet) and ''disguised'' as a man]]. End result: Two men on stage making out. ThatOtherWiki suggests that it might have been a [[OlderThanSteam very early]] form of {{Fanservice}}.
* ''{{Hamlet}}'' and Horatio. Horatio is Hamlet's close friend, confidant and ultimately the only one Hamlet really trusts throughout, and [[TogetherInDeath almost kills himself at Hamlet's death]]. And, he says the line "Goodnight sweet prince." If that line isn't HoYay, than what is? Not to mention the subtext almost doubles when you look at how crappily Hamlet treats his girlfriend, or the strong evidence that the characters were inspired by the scandal-ridden [[FoeYay Brahe and Kepler]].

* In ''AsYouLikeIt'', Orlando spends a large chunk of the play wooing Rosalind . . . while she's dressed as a man. To be fair, she instigates the craziness, saying that she can cure him of his love by pretending to be a false and changeable woman, but how involved he gets in the charade is up for debate, especially since she takes the name Ganymede (Zeus' cupbearer in Greek Mythology; in Renaissance England the name carried connotations of being the object of male homosexual affection).

** Pandarus, Cressida's uncle, has an obvious interest in hooking up his niece with his buddy, Troilus. Beyond his devotion to Troilus in his serving as a go-between, Pandarus also praises Troilus looks and good qualities frequently. And when Cressida is forced to go to the Greek camp from Troy, Pandarus' main concern is not about her welfare, but that this will break Troilus' heart.
