* In the ''Manga/SailorMoon'' manga, Kunzite and Zoisite's sexuality was never addressed but there is a piece of artwork Creator/NaokoTakeuchi made [[WhatCouldHaveBeen whilst hashing out plot points that were eventually dropped]] that shows Zoisite and Sailor Mercury and Kunzite and Sailor Venus embracing. In the [[Anime/SailorMoon anime]] however Kunzite and Zoisite are YaoiGuys (and in the Creator/DiC dub [[ShesAManInJapan "Zoycite" is a woman]]). Also Fisheye was never into guys in the manga, again showing romantic interest in Sailor Mercury, but chased men in the anime and once more became female in TheNineties English dub.

** The Cloverway English dub of the original anime did this to Haruka (Amara) and Michuru (Michelle). In the Japanese version and later dubs they are unrelated and an OfficialCouple. The dub [[HideYourLesbians changed them]] so that they're [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nHzjXrEiQqQ cousins]]. In combination with that, the dub edited a scene so Michelle mentions her first kiss was with a boy named Brad and Amara also mentions being attracted to boys. Michuru is AmbiguouslyBi but her kissing a boy was nowhere in the Japanese version. The dub, however, accidentally made the cousins come off as gay or bisexual anyway (though with a KissingCousins slant) because their scenes together are still heavily romantic even with dialogue changes.

* The first film adaptation of the play ''Theatre/TheChildrensHour'' changed the story of two teachers having their lives ruined due to rumors that they are having a lesbian affair to rumors that one of them slept with the others' fiance. This is because UsefulNotes/TheHaysCode outlawed even the slightest hint of homosexuality. Even the ''title'' had to be changed (to ''These Three'') because the stage play was so well known as a work that dealt with lesbianism.

* In the ''Comicbook/DCRebirth'' relaunch, Aqualad II (Jackson Hyde/Kaldur'ahm) is gay. Then again, this might be a subversion, as he was a CanonImmigrant from the ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'' cartoon and all Creator/GregWeisman said on the subject was [[https://twitter.com/Greg_Weisman/statuses/367861073430319105 he wasn't straight]].

* DC has now gone there too, with the all-new version of Alan Scott (the original Golden Age ComicBook/GreenLantern and very much Married With Children in the old continuity) revealed as being in a same-sex relationship on the all-new Earth-2. WordOfGod says that this was to make up for the fact that his son Obsidian, who was homosexual, was erased from continuity due to the age-down making Scott too young to have adult children.

* Creator/{{ITV}}'s ''[[Literature/HerculePoirot Poirot]]'' (1989) and ''[[Literature/MissMarple Marple]]'' (2004) make some of the exclusively straight cast members gay, for example in ''Literature/FiveLittlePigs'', ''The Body in the Library'' and ''Literature/CardsOnTheTable'' (in the last one it was done to at least ''three'' characters). In ''Literature/AMurderIsAnnounced'', a subtle lesbian subtext in the original novel is made much more explicit.
