* ''Franchise/StarTrek'', which was conceived as taking place in a time when all humanity had overcome all its internal prejudices. It's had plenty of homoeroticism, strong characters and is about a group of peace-loving space scientists overcoming all manners of danger through unity and with a shared, near-unbreakable sense of morality. And it made SlashFic a thing.
** Although ''Franchise/StarTrek'' is notable for HoYay to the point of inspiring the first SlashFic, the fact that there are no canonically gay or bi characters in the series has led to complaints.
*** However, this will change with ''Series/StarTrekDiscovery'', which will have an LGBT character.

franchise.



* ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' has a small but growing fanbase, rooted in the same-sex supports, courtesy of loads and loads of HoYay. The most prominent examples include [[DudeLooksLikeALady Lucius]] and [[GrumpyBear Raven]]'s supports from ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Blazing Sword]]'', [[ModestRoyalty Joshua]] and [[NiceGuy Gerik]] from ''[[FireEmblemTheSacredStones Sacred Stones]]'', and most of the male children from the future ([[MyFriendsAndZoidberg and Severa and Kjelle]]) from ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening Awakening]]''.
** The fanbase is large enough that as of FireEmblemFates the series now has CANON same-sex S-Rank (aka marriage) partners. However, it's strictly reserved for the PC and each gender is limited to only one option. Many are understandably upset by this to the point that arguably the most popular fan-patch is the "Fire Emblem Fates gay marriage hack" which vastly expands the chose of same-sex love interests.

** The series has one with the [[HoYay Les Yay]] between the Crystal Gems and canonical nonbinary characters (including Steven and [[spoiler:Connie]]'s fusion).
** [[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 SickeninglySweethearts with ''no'' subtlety whatsoever.
** Pearl has an especially strong lesbian and bi following. She has canon romantic feelings for Rose Quartz, tends to blush around the other Crystal Gems as well, instigates most of the subtext, and she's a developed, well-rounded and flawed ([[ThisLoserIsYou occasionally relatable]]) character.
** Jasper, despite having very little screentime, has garnered quite a bit of [[PerverseSexualLust attention]] from some fans for being a [[TheBrute huge, brawny, ruthless,]] butch warrior woman. And ''many'' of these fans are female.

** 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.
