* The only reason why we know that Troy, Eve's male BFF in ''Film/BlastFromThePast'' is gay at all is because Eve tells us.
-->'''Eve:''' (to Adam, about Troy) "He's gay, by the way."
-->'''Adam:''' (to Troy, thinking Eve means that Troy is happy) "Well, good for you!"
-->'''Troy:''' (confused) "Well, I do try..."

* ''{{Archer}}'': Ray Gillette's sexuality is frequently mentioned but never really demonstrated outside of the occasional CutawayGag of him hanging out with male strippers.

* Tara, the first openly gay character on ''Series/TheWalkingDead'', suffers from this a bit. In her first appearance she manages to drop her sexuality into a casual conversation, seemingly so that Lily and "Brian" can start up their romance without the worry of a SiblingTriangle developing between the only three adults in their group. The next episode introduces Alicia as a love interest for Tara, but though we're told repeatedly that they're in as much of a committed relationship as Lily and Brian, we only see a couple of snippets of conversation between them and Alicia coming to Tara's aid during a confrontation. [[spoiler:[[BuryYourGays Then Alicia dies in the next episode]], though Tara is the only member of the group to make it through alive.]]

* ''Webcomic/DumbingOfAge'' has Becky, a girl who comes from a ''very'' repressive home and was gleefully shouting "I'm a lesbian!" in public.
-->'''Joyce''': I just wish everyone could leave the closet with as much ''joy'' as Becky did.\\
'''Ethan''': She didn't just leave it. Becky nuked the closet from orbit, [[NoKillLikeOverkill just to be sure]].

* On ''Series/TheTalk'', Sara Gilbert practically ''always'' has to change the subject of whatever the current discussion is about to homosexuality.

* ''QueerAsFolk'', strangely enough. Vic is undoubtedly gay, but is portrayed as almost asexual for a ''long'' time. Partly TruthInTelevision, as it can sometimes be much harder for older gay men -- especially ones who are HIV+, as Vic was -- to find the same sort of sexual and romantic opportunities that their younger counterparts have.

* Damian from ''Film/MeanGirls'' being "almost too gay to function" doesn't seem to involve him dating or even being attracted to men. Although to some extent this ''can'' be TruthInTelevision for gay teens in high school (the not-dating part) as there are often few openly gay kids around.

And then there's the moment near the end of the film where [[spoiler:he and Janice try kissing and he is ''immediately'' turned off of it.]]

* [[ComicBook/ThePunisher Punisher]]: War Zone issue 5 brings us this lovely gem of dialogue:

* Jody, Billy Crystal's character in ''{{Soap}}'', verbally informed the audience of his sexual preference pretty much every episode, yet you saw him going out with women far more often than with other guys. This was because the show's producers and ABC's standards and practices department had to walk on eggshells with regards to their treatment of Jody. A few years earlier, NBC had canceled the sitcom ''Snip'' less than a month '''''before''''' its pilot episode's scheduled debut -- it didn't even get the chance to be a OneEpisodeWonder -- because of the public backlash over what would have been the first open gay character on an American TV series.
* Ashley's friend Griffin in ''TheSecretLifeOfTheAmericanTeenager''. He did eventually end up getting a love interest (Peter), but they've seldom appeared since they hooked up.

* Both parodied and subverted in ''ScottPilgrim'' via Scott's roommate Wallace. We initially learn that Wallace is gay not because of his actions, but rather because no-one will shut up about it to the point where it becomes blatantly superfluous. Later we do actually see Wallace in relationships with men, however it's often intentionally exaggerated to draw attention to itself (especially so in TheMovie).
* The only reason anyone knows that Northstar from ''ComicBook/AlphaFlight'' and the ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'' is gay is because he can't seem to go five minutes without referencing that fact. Less so that now he actually has a steady boyfriend and in fact married him in a high profile event, but in the days right after he came out, it seemed like he couldn't ''stop'' coming out.
