* Not until ''Series/{{ER}}'''s Maggie Doyle flips out upon almost running into her "insanely jealous" ex-girlfriend does the viewer get any hint that she's gay. Her "tough-as-nails" personality could be interpreted either as the ButchLesbian trope, or just how she is regardless of her sexual orientation.

* Season three of ''Series/{{Warehouse 13}}'' introduced former ATF agent Steve Jinks to the team. After Claudia misinterpreted his interest in her, he blurts out that he's gay. His ex, met in a later episode, might have been even straighter.

** Is there such a thing as "straight bi"? Or "straight anything with a post code"? I give you one Jack Harkness, especially in Who proper, less so in Torchwood.

Some gay people object to the term itself, feeling that it improperly conflates masculinity with heterosexuality, implying that homosexuality is by default anti-masculine.

** Noah of the gay supercouple Luke and Noah, though this makes some sense given his strict military upbringing from his dad. Given his extensive character development, Luke has had enough time to be way more comfortable about his sexuality and his mannerisms.
** Still, Luke has his moments especially when it comes to helping and protecting Noah. Lampshaded somewhat when a former executive, turned {{Squick}}y step-Grand{{parental incest}} there for a moment, of his charity foundation told him to lay low around LGBT issues and projects.

** Come to think of it, none of the minor gay characters from Luke's college days did anything particularly gay either. Might be because Oakdale's a small town in the Midwest that, despite its latent progressiveness about gay teens, relied primarily on farms, sports, and leisure for hobbies.
* ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}'''s [[spoiler:Gaeta]] is gay and in a relationship with Hoshi. Who would've thought?

* Possibly Kanji Tatsumi from ''VideoGame/Persona4''. Despite his secret love of all manner of cute things, fabric, and knitting, he's a muscular powerhouse preoccupied with seeming as masculine as possible, evident in his threatening rage issues and his unusually deep, gruff voice for a 15 year old kid. No one suspected he might be gay until he started awkwardly hanging out with the new, mysterious pretty boy in town. And then we got to meet his [[CampGay shadow]]...
** Probably averted, as the true ending reveals [[spoiler:the Midnight Channel doesn't actually reflect what's hidden in the victim's heart, but rather what the people of Inaba collectively think is there--which makes perfect sense, given that the Midnight Channel only exists as part of an AssimilationPlot.]]
** Also note that, according to WordOfGod, Kanji's entire deal was about having traditionally feminine hobbies like sewing (which he only had on the first place because his family owns a textile shop and he grew up there) in a culture/environment that preferred conformism. Because of this he was bullied as a child and assumed a delinquent facade as a coping mechanism, which involved acting gruff and constantly re-assuring his heterosexuality, thus his inner anguish when Naoto shows up. The reason why most western players miss this is that his problems are very culture-specific and thus the thing that readily jumps out for them is the sexual orientation issue. And yes, [[CampGay his shadow didn't help matters either...]]
*** On top of that note that Kanji actually blushes when near girls and even gets a nosebleed from seeing Chie and Yukiko in swimwear, so he would be BiTheWay at most anyway.

* [[spoiler:Guinn Lineford]] from ''Anime/TurnAGundam'', the first character in the entire Gundam franchise with an openly stated same-sex attraction. He might be [[NoBisexuals bisexual]], but TheReveal of his unrequited love for the main character is not revealed until the last few episodes, so there's not much time to investigate the possibility.
