** There's also the fact that the game's community had an overwhelmingly positive reaction to ''Obergefell v. Hodges'', the US Supreme Court case which legalized gay marriage across the entire United States. When the ruling was announced, the game's Miiverse was flooded with posts celebrating the ruling.

* ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'', mostly due to the addition of Agent Victoria Hand, who is a lesbian in the comics, as a recurring character. This would make her the first LGBT character to appear in the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse. The show also gave the Marvel Cinematic Universe its first ''explicitly'' gay character with Inhuman Joey Gutierrez. Plus the whole Inhuman story arc that was introduced in Season 2 is really starting to resonate with LGBT viewers since pretty much all struggles faced by the Inhumans in the show can be applied to gay people in RealLife. Same-sex pairings amongst the main characters are also popular and the fandom even has their own hastag: #superqueeros.

** [[spoiler:Garnet]]'s component gems being [[WordOfGay confirmed]] [[OfficialCouple as a couple]] has only fueled the blaze. Ruby and Sapphire's romantic relationship is not only said by the crew, but they're stated to be in love several times in the show itself and they're SickenlySweethearts with ''no'' subtlety whatsoever.

* ''TrueBlood'': The creator is gay, so there is plenty of homoerotic fanservice.
* ''XenaWarriorPrincess'': Xena and Gabrielle weren't lovers at first, but by the end of the series due to the huge LGBT fanbase they were declared to be ''soulmates'', [[ReincarnationRomance destined to hook up in every single lifetime, and every incarnation, forever.]] In fact, their future selves were married. And even clones made from the DNA of their Ancient Greek incarnations hooked up the very day that they became sentient. Even their own mysteriously similar-looking ancestors hook up. And for some reason, Joxer is always with them.
* ''Series/{{Merlin}}'', with its central relationship being that of Arthur and Merlin (both played by young men in this version), and the fact that the actors ColinMorgan and Creator/BradleyJames are HeterosexualLifePartners. However, there has been some CreatorBacklash to this, with one of the head writers claiming that: "we don't pander to that lot."
** And yet, in the very first episode they have the Dragon say "A half cannot truly hate that which makes it whole." Which is about as unsubtle as you can get on the subject of their relationship.

* ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'': There's something about Ganondorf that makes him quite the LGBT bait. In addition, the hero Link was voted hottest video game character by the LGBT magazine "Out." He's also been known to inspire StupidSexyFlanders moments in straight male fans. Also, in the Skyward Sword the BigBad Ghirahim is a fabulous villain who gets FoeYay with Link and has inspired a lot of fan works pairing him and Link, though he is stated to be genderless.

** The game gathered fans of [[{{Bara}} bara]], particularly to Hanzo and [=McCree=], who make up the FanPreferredCouple for those of that circle. Soldier: 76, Reaper and Genji also have gay fans.
