* ''Manga/NanashiNoAsterism'': [[spoiler:Kotooka]] is a closeted lesbian who has feelings for her friend [[spoiler:Tsukasa and a complicated relationship with another friend Washio]]. While seeing nothing wrong with being gay in and of itself, she thinks that her feelings and the feelings of her friends [[spoiler:will break apart their friend group, as her feelings for a previous friend ruined a previous friendship of hers. In order to avoid this, she dates boys she isn't attracted to and tries to get her friends to date boys as well.]]

* SatisfiedStreetRat Mickey Milkovich on ''Series/{{Shameless}} (U.S.)''. He's a teenage thug whose psychopathic father is [[HeteronormativeCrusader homophobic]] to the point of being willing to [[OffingTheOffspring kill his son]] when he finally finds out. Hence for most of the series Mickey is obsessively secretive about his sexuality, to the point of seriously considering murdering his boyfriend's father when he finds out about it.

[[folder:Manhwa]]
* PlayedForDrama in ''Webcomic/WelcomeToRoom305''. [[spoiler:Yoona]] has heavy baggage about being lesbian, no thanks to her [[spoiler:twin brothers]] homophobic backlash when he learned her secret. She begins [[TheBeard pretending to be straight]] and [[spoiler:Yoon Sung]], realizing the emotional damage he's causing, tries to stop her. She resists and their relationship continues to sour. [[spoiler:Yoon Sung]] pretends to be gay in order to get her to stop but [[spoiler:Yoona]] in turn becomes overprotective and highly homophobic towards ''him''.

* ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIV'' presents Bryce Dawkins, the largely [[TheUnseen unseen]] Deputy Mayor of Liberty City, notorious for his vitriolic homophobic rants (thus pandering to his right-wing voter base). So it is perhaps no surprise that he turns out to be the lover of Bernie Crane, a ''very'' CampGay fitness trainer. In fact, most of Niko's missions with Bernie involve fending off members of TheMafiya trying to blackmail Bryce. The secret ends up getting revealed anyway (as a post-game radio news feed reveals), but Bryce still insists he's not gay, will not change his anti-gay stance, and instead "visited a rehab", presumably to "correct personal failures", or at least lie low for a while until the issue dies down in favor of celebrity scandals. Quoth a press statement meant to deflect accusations of homophobia against him...

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CuA7l9vQQXQ This]] animatic for a cover of "Hellfire" from ''Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame'' changes the implications of the song due to the singer being female. The protagonist of the short is a nun who is lusting over another woman. Frollo's hypocritical and violent attitude is still there.

* ''Manga/BlueFlag''[[spoiler:Touma]] is very popular, friends with everyone, and a generally a very nice guy. But when another character reveals that she knows that he is in love with Taichi, he pins her against a fence, horrified that she might have told Taichi about his feelings.

If FridgeLogic is applied, this trope can become a MortonsFork. ''Anyone'' who is homophobic might be suspected of being this. On the other hand, if you go in the opposite direction and ''defend'' gays, you're ''[[SarcasmMode obviously]]'' speaking up on behalf of your people, which means you're gay anyway! (Then again, people who would try to catch you out this way are probably homophobes, and thus potentially gay themselves, so in that sense [[EveryoneIsGay it sort of evens out]].)

* In ''Out of the Shadows'' by Sue Hines, Jodie is continually picked on by the AlphaBitch because of her [[RomanticTwoGirlFriendship extremely close friendship]] with Ro. She gets back at the Alpha Bitch later on in the book by suggesting that she's trying to cover up her own lesbian yearnings with her bullying. It's never confirmed if her accusation was right or not, but the Alpha Bitch ''does'' leave her alone after that.

** Also parodied in [[http://www.theonion.com/video/heartbroken-santorum-condemns-gay-marriage-for-two,27497/ this video]] where "Rick Santorum" reveals why he doesn't like gay marriage is because his boyfriend cheated on him and married some other guy.
* Kagura from ''YukariIsFree'' used to be this, until her friends "dragged her kicking and screaming out of the closet" mid-season 2.

* In [[http://skin-horse.com/comic/of-ancient-gears/ this]] ''Webcomic/SkinHorse'', Sweetheart, an [[UpliftedAnimal Uplifted Dog]] who is canonically in love with her female roommate, advocates [[CureYourGays "curing"]] a same-sex couple of Uplifted Opossums because she fears that LGBT Uplifted Animals will harm the UpliftedAnimal cause. For context, the other characters are concerned about the couple because the couple wants to use MadScience to evangelize people for the ChurchOfHappyology they're founding.
