* When [=PopGirl=] in the UK started censoring ''[[{{WesternAnimation/Sixteen}} 6teen]]'' so younger viewers could watch it, they stopped airing the episode where Nikki had a lesbian co-worker and the episode where Jen developed a "girl crush" on her new boss.

Oddly, they still aired the episode where a gay cowboy bids on Jonesy.

* This is supposedly the sole reason why the ''Rawhide Kid'' mini MarvelComics did a while back was in the MAX imprint, even if he was just somewhat hinted to be gay. [[http://www.cracked.com/article_18502_the-5-most-unintentionally-offensive-comic-book-characters.html Through constant and offensive innuendo]].
* After Karolina came out in ''ComicBook/{{Runaways}}'', she was almost immediately [[PutOnABus put on a spaceship]], having suddenly become betrothed to Xavin, a genderfluid Skrull royal (who presented as male as often as female, if not more). When they came back, they were generally portrayed as a happy couple...until volume three contrived a reason to put ''Xavin'' on a bus. They haven't been seen since, and Karolina is currently dating Lightspeed whenever they show up.

* Website/YouTube [[http://www.pinknews.co.uk/2012/01/26/video-youtube-pulls-non-family-safe-gay-music-ad/ pulled a 16-second sponsoring ad]] that featured two men in their underwear in an emotional embrace, saying it "promoted mature sexual themes" and was "non family safe". It was an excerpt from a PerfumeGenius music video [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OOpkr8uNWpk YouTube still hosts]]. Cue InternetBackdraft. The other man in the video is recognized by ''some'' as the ManlyGay {{Bear}} porn star Arpad Miklos, but this would not likely be recognized by a random viewer who has never seen an Arpad Miklos porno.

* In the summer of 2011, Trisha Telep, an editor of various anthologies rejected YA author Jessica Verday's short story on account of it being a QueerRomance, saying it was too risque for a Young Adult audience. [[ButNotTooGay Never mind the fact that some of Telep's previous anthologies had far more explicit heterosexual content (i.e. foreplay,) drug use, violence, and foul language.]] Telep advised Verday to [[GenderFlip de-gay]] her story if she wanted to publish it, [[HideYourLesbians which sadly isn't an uncommon occurrence in publishing.]] When Verday posted about it on her website, an InternetCounterattack ensued and most of the authors featured in the anthology (and some who were involved in Telep's other projects) pulled out in support of Verday.

* On this very site, any time homosexuals or otherwise are so much as alluded to on a show meant for kids, it almost always gets labeled as GettingCrapPastTheRadar. Though this isn't necessarily due to the tropers view on the subject and is instead how they perceive the executives and MoralGuardians to act. And, to be fair, most examples pretty much ''treat'' it as such; while a work like ''{{Paranorman}}'' has no problems in adressing the existence of LGBT people, things like ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' have whatever subtext they have as basically treated in the same way they treat "adult jokes": implied, [[UnfortunateImplications humorous as means to "soften the impact"]], kept as vague as possible, et cetera.

* [[Creator/TheBBC BBC America]] took a lot of stick for the edit job they did on Series 3 of ''Series/{{Skins}}''. Cook and Effy graphically rutting in a closet? Fine. Naomi and Emily sharing a tender scene by the lake? Cut to fuck.

** Oddly enough, other PG-13 films like ''FarFromHeaven'' have featured gay kisses so the MPAA isn't even consistent in that area. This, of course, takes us back to ''Film/ThisFilmIsNotYetRated''.

* American soap operas have been called out for the double standard they use to treat their gay romances. Notably ''AsTheWorldTurns'' with gay couple Luke and Noah. Fans instituted a "kiss clock" marking how long it had been since their last kiss. It was over 6 months, in a genre that has people hopping in and out of bed on a regular basis. ''GuidingLight's'' gay couple suffered similarly with hand holding and longing looks being the extent of affection seen. ABC and NBC have made more of an effort to give more than lip service to treating their gay soap couples the same as the straight ones.
* Another in-universe example in GoodLuckCharlie where Teddy (dressed as Benjamin Franklin) kisses her boyfriend (dressed as Thomas Jefferson) in front of a family and are promptly fired for the "inappropriate" act. Unlike the Glee example above, this is played for un-ironic laughs. To drive the point home on this fine example of homophobia, Disney ''still'' cut away from the two before they actually kissed.

* After Yahoo bought Tumblr, it has set a rather unnecessarily complicated tag blocking system to make it "kid friendly". Among the deleted tags? "Gay", "lesbian", "bisexual", even simply "lgbt". "Straight" isn't blocked, and neither are far more explicit tags like "rape".
