When editing examples, keep in mind that '''a LGBT fanbase doesn't have to be unintentional''' (compare PeripheryDemographic). Also, HoYay by gay fans should go in that article, unless there's more that the gay fanbase especially likes besides just the Ho Yay.

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'': The Amalj'aa race have also gained quite a bit of popularity. The Amalj'aa are huge and beefy lizardmen that don't wear any form of clothing except for what looks like a makeshift tribal jockstrap. After an update was released that allowed players to do quests for the Amalj'aa, the lizarmen's popularity rose even further.

Added DiffLines:

*''Series/TheMightyBoosh'' has a big LGBT fanbase, because of the joyfully queer universe the show exists within, where queerness is present everywhere and normalised and unremarked-upon, and because both of the main characters are some flavour of BiTheWay. Also because the show's creators never treat the shipteasing of Howard and Vince as something that's funny or absurd because of its queerness, it's just an element of the characters. Vince's androgynous gender presentation ('I'm the Confuser! Is it a man, is it a woman? Ooh, I'm not sure I mind.') is also a big element of that, with a bigger than usual chunk of the fanbase being trans or nonbinary. Many young fans even cite Vince and the Boosh as helping them feel safe in exploring their own gender more.

* ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'' has managed to develop a strong following among LGBT fans, thanks to a cast of attractive characters prone to HoYay or LesYay, and several canon LGBT characters. The series includes the bisexual (or possibly pansexual) Tsukiyama, homosexual Drag Queen Nico, and leaves a rather ambiguous situation concerning [[RaisedAsTheOppositeGender Juuzou]]'s gender identity. The sequel has earned considerable praise for revealing Tooru Mutsuki to be a transgender man, portraying him in a respectful and accurate fashion. His [[spoiler: feelings of love towards Sasaki as revealed in chapter 114]] help at least for the fans who like him. Big Madam is also hinted in the sequel as being a trans woman as she is referred to with male pronouns at her death.

** The nature of [[HoYay Sasuke and Naruto's relationship]] has garndered speculation among fans [[spoiler: even after the epilogue where it was revealed Sakura married Sasuke and Hinata married Naruto]] and is shown in a lot of official art and well as fan art.

** The nature of [[HoYay Sasuke and Naruto's relationship]] has garndered speculation among fans [[spoiler: even after the epilogue where it was revealed Sakura married Sasuke and Hinata married Naruto]] and is shown in a lot of official art and well as fan art. It helps that the voice actors for the two voiced a cd drama for a fanfiction where they were in a relationship.



* ''{{Anime/Noir}}'' attracted a sizable lesbian fanbase due to the ambiguous relationship between the two female leads, and a much less subtle lesbian attraction shown later in the series. Creator/BeeTrain's next two series in their GirlsWithGuns trilogy, ''Anime/{{Madlax}}'' and ''Anime/ElCazadorDeLaBruja'', attracted similar if not as large groups for the same reasons.
