** ''Series/DoctorWho'' had attracted a large LGBT fanbase during the original series as well, as revival ShowRunner Creator/RussellTDavies had repeatedly referenced on his previous show ''QueerAsFolk'' ("Oh my God, you've got ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS12E4GenesisOfTheDaleks Genesis of the Daleks]]''!"). This is commonly ascribed to the show's long-time NoHuggingNoKissing policy, which meant that gay viewers didn't have the characters' heterosexuality rammed down their throats, and also made the Doctor into something of a symbol in the {{Asexual}} community. It doesn't hurt that most eras of the show were about a clever, snarky, flamboyantly-dressed hero who defeated bullying authoritarians with guile rather than violence.

* The ''Franchise/{{Terminator}}'' franchise in general got quite a strong lesbian fanbase, due almost entirely to Linda Hamilton's butch performance and muscular appearance in ''Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay''.

* ''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 MarvelCinematicUniverse. The show also gave the MarvelCinematicUniverse it's 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.

* Most of Myth/{{Classical mythology}} -- especially Hellenic mythology -- falls under this. Homosexual relations were widely accepted and practiced in Ancient Greece, and tolerated in Rome. As a result, vast swathes of Ancient Greek mythological figures have serious HoYay going on, and on top of that, many have explicit romantic relationships with the same-sex. Furthermore, most of the Gods were {{bi|TheWay}}sexual. Things were toned down in Roman times (the original Narcissus myth had him spurning a male suitor) but a lot still lingered on. Greek mythology has subsequently inspired a lot of homoerotic art, such as this [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/5/5e/The_Death_of_Hyacinthos.gif painting]] of Apollo cradling Hyacinth.

** The sequel series, ''Literature/TheTrialsOfApollo'', has increased the LGBT+ presence quite noticeably, and subsequently, the fandom. Not only does [[spoiler:Nico have a boyfriend]], but the title character, Apollo, was unabashedly bisexual in the myths and remains so here, listing both Daphne and Hyacinthus as his two great loves and revealing that Kayla, a background character, is his [[HomosexualReproduction daughter]] with [[HasTwoMommies another man]].
* ''Literature/TheBible'', namely the story of [[HerHeartWillGoOn David and Jonathan]]. Though David had no fewer than ''eight'' wives, he was said to have loved [[ClosetKey Jonathan]] with a passion above all other people. The HoYay of this relationship has been [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jonathan_and_David#Homoeroticism acknowledged and celebrated in art]] at least since the Middle Ages (and likely earlier as well).

* LGBT women love ComicBook/HarleyQuinn and ComicBook/PoisonIvy together. Amping up their (already plentiful) subtext is one of the few ComicBook/New52 additions people widely enjoy.
