Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/DesertHearts'' begins with Vivian Bell, a repressed, middle-aged English professor in TheFifties, going to a Nevada dude ranch for a DivorceInReno. There, she meets Cay Rivvers, a free-spirited young casino employee-cum-sculptress who is openly lesbian--and strongly attracted to her. Vivian has to come to terms with her own sexuality before she can admit that she's equally attracted to Cay.

** There's a [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2005-08-16 particularly powerful strip]], wordlessly depicting how Justin was outed. Of special note in that Justin lacks the "whatever you do I'll support you" guy. He only meets Elliot (ChronicHeroSyndrome) and Nanase (At the time, Elliot's girlfriend) ''after'' the whole saga.

* Both spoofed and subverted in ''The Catherine Tate Show''. One series of skits featuring [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ooWIoSwEsZo a man named John coming out to his family]]. This is set up to be a sterotypical encounter, since he lives in a seemingly lower-class neighborhood. However, his family is outright ''delighted'' to have a gay man in the family, hilariously over-supporting him and parading him around town to everyone they meet. And everyone he encounters treat his sexuality as a godsend (even ''street punks''), giving him gifts, asking for advice, and generally making a much bigger deal out of it than poor John intended.

* Series/SouthOfNowhere is pretty much ComingOutStory: TheSeries. [[spoiler:The first season is all about Spencer developing and learning to accept her feelings for Ashley, and end with them getting together. The second season is all about coming out to her family and friends and dealing with other peoples reaction and homophobia and ends with her and Ashley going to the Prom together. The third season is all about Spencer being out and Proud, calling out her mother's homophobia, going to Pride, getting LGBT-friends and so on.]] She never has any big "I am Gay"-scene, since pretty much everyone she knows figures it out on their own or by walking in on her and Ashley in compromising situations. The closest thing she has is when she was given the chance to deny it and chose not to.
