* ''Manga/X1999'' has this at the core of the story. Kamui's mother Tohru and Fuuma and Kotori's mother Saya were lesbian lovers, but in order to save Tohru's life Saya and her RomanticRunnerUp Kyougo Monou agreed to get married, in order to take Tohru's place and "give birth" to the holy sword (read: explode into a bunch of bloody pieces). Tohru survived, but she took off with her son Kamui [[GuiltComplex because she felt too guilty for this]]; later, she died by bursting into flames to protect Kamui or more exactly, by becoming a HumanSacrifice of sorts, burning herself up to slow the global warming.

\n* ''Series/TheHandmaidsTale'': Enforced under the fundamentalist regime. Homosexuality is a capital crime, and we see one man was hanged for this on the Wall. They even brought back the pink triangle symbol of the Nazis to designate it. Any lesbians who are fertile get exempted however.

** And then there was Lafayette's boyfriend Jesus. Their romance was surprisingly genuine, but apart from a few kisses and laying in bed together they weren't shown "in action" like most in-series couples. And then Lafayette was possessed by a psycho witch and was forced to stab Jesus to death.

* ''Series/VeronicaMars'' does this in the second season as it is revealed that {{B|igBad}}eaver engineered the bus crash because two characters established to be gay were going to reveal that Woody had molested them when they were in a little league baseball team, and that he had done the same thing to Beaver, and Beaver didn't want people to think he was gay.
* In ''Series/{{The Walking Dead}}'', Alisha (season 4) is shot in the head by Lizzie and Denise Cloyd (season 6) was hit by a stray arrow and both were girlfriends/love interests of Tara Chambler.
** Though justified by the fact that all the characters live in a CrapsackWorld were AnyoneCanDie with no exceptions to even children and the elderly. Also straight couples haven't had it easy either with one or both members of a couple either end up dying or their happiness being short lived when things inevitably go wrong, so generally no couple on the show has gotten an happy ending or stays happy.

Added DiffLines:

** The beginning of Series 10 led to immediate complaints of this from some fans about the fate of [[spoiler:Heather, a girl who new lesbian companion Bill starts getting interested in, and who immediately accidentally merges with an alien entity and starts pursuing Bill in a rather PsychoLesbian way. However, the combined Heather entity left peacefully at the end, with hints that she might return in the future, and since she was obviously very mentally unstable following her creation it's anyone's guess just how much of the original Heather's personality will end up in the fusion once she's stabilised more.]]

* ''Series/SpartacusBloodAndSand'':
** The series has had three gay male characters killed off with Pietros who killed himself after the death of his lover Barca and Barca's past lover [[PosthumousCharacter Auctus who's death was depicted in the prequel]].
** The show also featured the deaths of bisexual characters Lucretia, Gaia, Saxa, Castus and Ilithyia. But justified by Lucretia and Ilithyia being antagonists with Gaia's death in the prequel being partly responsible for Lucretia's StartOfDarkness and [[KillEmAll Saxa and Castus dying among many other characters including almost all the main cast in the final battle in the series finale]]. There is also the justified deaths of some Roman characters like for example Tiberius who raped two characters male and female and the other Romans who took advantage of the male and female slaves. Also the gladiator Gnaeus who was raping Pietros leading to his suicide and Spartacus killing Gnaeus as a result of this.
** {{Inverted}} in ''War of the Damned'' with male couple Agron and Nasir who are the ''only'' main ex-slaves/protagonists left standing in the series finale.
