* The Gems in ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' are a OneGenderRace of [[StarfishAliens sapient rocks]] with NoBiologicalSex that use forms that look like human women. As such, any romantic relationship between two gems falls under this category.

* The Gems in ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' are a OneGenderRace of [[StarfishAliens sapient rocks]] with NoBiologicalSex that use forms that look like human women. As such, any romantic relationship between two gems falls under this category. So far, none of the human characters on the show have come out as gay or bisexual, due to MoralGuardians still being leery about GLBT characters in children's shows. Thus, the Gems allow the writers to explore same-sex romance in a "kid-friendly" manner.

* In ''Franchise/WonderWoman'' comics, the Amazons of Paradise Island often have romantic relationships with each other.
-->'''Diana:''' We don't call it "Paradise Island" for nothing.
* The Neil Gaiman story "Literature/MurderMysteries" actually has discount gay men. The characters in the main part of the story are angels, sexless and genderless, though they do generally take the form of human males. The angels who discover love end up as lovers, which means while there isn't any distinctive action, there's a lot of cuddling.

** The MirrorUniverse version of Kira Nerys is a DepravedBisexual with more [[EvilIsSexy evil kink]] than CharacterDevelopment; she's even made advances toward the regular universe version of [[ScrewYourself herself]]. [[WordOfSaintPaul According to]] Creator/NanaVisitor, that last one was more out of [[{{Narcissist}} narcissism]] than anything else. The mirror versions of Ezri and Leeta were also either bisexual or lesbians. The trope is [[DoubleStandard not really paralleled with male characters]], except for Garak, who was AmbiguouslyBi even in the prime universe.

* While Ziggy isn't DavidBowie's only gay or bisexual stage persona (as for the man himself... [[FlipFlopOfGod let's not start]]), he's certainly the most flamboyant...and happens to be TouchedByVorlons.

* ''VideoGame/EternalEden'': Joelle is engaged to Lynette. When Downey expresses surprise/disgust at the fact that the two girls are romantically involved with each other, Joelle explains that fairies have NoBiologicalSex, so her relationship with Lynette don't count as lesbians even if both looks female.

** Pearl's sometimes obsessive dedication, love for, and idolization of Rose Quartz. Matt Burnett [[https://twitter.com/mcburnett/status/611651923100307456 confirmed]] her feelings for Rose were ''not'' platonic (not that that really needed confirmation with all the focus they were given), though it's unknown how much of those feelings Rose reciprocated.

**Strictly speaking, they don't ''ignore'' it so much as dodge it by having Jenny pretend to be Vastra's maid. [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial Only pretending. She doesn't feel like she's being treated like a maid at all.]]

* ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' has a number of examples. Female characters Undyne and Alphys have a love interest in each other, as do the distinctively male armored guards in Hotland. Also, in order to complete the True Pacifist Route, the androgynous player character must go on a date with both Papyrus (male) and Alphys.

* The only gay characters in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' are a lesbian couple where both women are ghouls (humans mutated by radiation to make them outwardly resemble zombies, [[FantasticSlur but don't actually call them zombies, they don't like that]]).
** ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' in no way has a shortage of gay characters, but there is an example with Tabitha the Nightkin (human mutated into huge, hulking, blue monster that is also violently insane) and Rhonda the Mr. Handy robot (who has the same male voice as every other Mr. Handy).
