* Ethan in ''Webcomic/{{Shortpacked}}'' A bit strange, since his personal revelation comes the day after apparently great sex with a hot woman.
** Ethan's an interesting example, because while Amber kept telling Robin that Ethan was gay, neither of them actually knew that at all. Amber made it up to get Robin to give up on Ethan, and when Robin tells Ethan that he's supposed to be gay, that's when the epiphany hits him. Given that Ethan's a StraightGay, this is more of an AccidentalTruth on Amber's part than a TransparentCloset.
* Sara from ''Webcomic/PennyAndAggie'' does not realize she is gay and aggressively accuses nearly everyone else around her of being a closeted homosexual (despite having fantasies about Creator/LindsayLohan) until [[spoiler:she kisses Marshall and discovers/admits to herself that she is gay]].

* Most of the cast of ''Webcomic/{{Misfile}}'' believe Emily is living in one of these, partly because Emily makes sure to ''constantly'' remind them that [[HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday she isn't gay]].
** It should be noted that the "girl" she's attracted to is [[GenderBender psychologically male]], so the situation is… unique.
*** Due to this, debate rages on and off of the ''Misfile'' forums on whether Emily qualifies as straight, gay, bi, or just [[SingleTargetSexuality Ash-sexual]].
*** "Most of the cast" is incorrect. The only two who seem to have even considered otherwise are Missi and [[http://www.misfile.com/?page=714 Emily herself]]. For people to believe Ash as the lesbian is much more viable, unfortunately, the only person to realize that completely on her own is the niece of the devil.

* ''Webcomic/{{Spinnerette}}: Mecha Maid's attraction to the title character is incredibly evident to everyone but Spinnerette herself. When she finally gets the nerve to ask Mecha Maid whether or not she's attracted to her, Mecha Maid chooses to lie and tells her that their relationship is strictly friends. Spinnerette doesn't buy it, though, and when she confronts her again, Mecha Maid finally admits it.

* Lavali of ''Webcomic/SandraOnTheRocks'' previously tried to conceal her lesbianism from her brother Alex and her parents (and doubtless from others), presumably out of simple shyness and embarrassment at the idea of talking about sexual matters with family. However, Alex points out gently that [[http://www.sandraontherocks.com/strips-sotr/kept_things_so_professional it wasn't hard for him to guess]], and [[http://www.sandraontherocks.com/strips-sotr/i_always_covered_them_up she did a really awful job of keeping it from their parents]].

It does later turn out that their friend Marie hadn't noticed, but Marie can be a bit oblivious sometimes.

* Private Franklin Delano Donut from ''WebVideo/RedVsBlue''. He frequently acts in a flamboyant manner and makes sexual innuendos, especially about gay sex, though he doesn't seem to realize the nature of these innuendos. He is shown with stereotypically "gay" characteristics and has pink armor, though he insists that it is "lightish red", a metaphor for his cluelessness or repression of his sexuality. As most of the show's characters are based on tropes, Donut follows this one to a T.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Series/HaltAndCatchFire'', Haley is still mostly in the closet by the time the series ends, with her older sister Joanie being the only person to whom she has explicitly come out, but Joe, Cameron, Donna, and Gordon have all figured it out by then.

* [[spoiler:Captain Holt]] in ''Series/BrooklynNineNie'' is openly gay, however, while under witness protection, he has to pretend to be straight. This results in him acting much like this, since he apparently believes that "thick, weighty breasts" are the sole standard of female beauty for straight men.

* In ''[[https://www.fimfiction.net/story/337181/rainbow-dash-comes-out-to-her-friends Rainbow Dash Comes Out to Her Friends]]'' it turns out everyone in Dash's circle of friends automatically identified her as a lesbian, from her rainbow mane and tail, to the fact she moved to Ponyville (a haven for same-sex couples), to the fact she keeps incessantly hitting on and awkwardly invading the personal space of every female around her if she as much as touches a drop of booze.

* Riley Freeman plays with this on ''WesternAnimation/TheBoondocks''. Everyone but Riley knows Gangstalicious is gay. Riley concludes that Gangstalicious can't be gay because [[YouFailLogicForever he likes Gangstalicious's music and he's not gay]]. Gangstalicious's new fashion line convinces Granddad that Riley is gay. Huey [[BatmanGambit takes advantage of Granddad's suspicions to get his own room]] and then, at the end of the episode, Riley, who is EIGHT, tearfully confesses his homosexuality to Granddad, thinking that he must be gay [[InsaneTrollLogic because he was a fan of Gangstalicious]]. The jury is still out on him.

* Makoto in ''WebAnimation/FiftyPercentOff'' has painfully obvious feelings for Haru, but still denies that he's his boyfriend. This may have something to do with the HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood he suffered at the hands of his father, who is clearly disappointed by his effeminate son.

** [[http://www.somethingpositive.net/sp12312001.shtml Inverted]] early on with Monette, although it didn't last forever. (She eventually realized she's bisexual.)
** PlayedWith: a minor character named Mikaela, who was friends with the group in a flashback arc, was very obviously into girls (at least, it became obvious [[InVinoVeritas when she was drunk]]). However, she was so close to Davan that [=PeeJee=] was surprised to learn that she wasn't into guys too.
