* ''Webcomic/{{AvasDemon}}'' has an interesting case of both playing straight and inverting this trope. In her formspring account, the author confirmed that there was an LGBT character amongst those that already appeared, most fans believed it to be Maggie, and that her CharacterArc would revolve around a ComingOutStory. Later on the author publicly say that Gil is [[StraightGay gay]] and the titular Ava is [[BiTheWay bisexual]], beside the already reveal that Odin's sister Crow is lesbian, but also confirmed that Maggie is actually straight.

* ''{{Webcomic/Homestuck}}'': It's established in the comic that most trolls are bisexual; however, Andrew Hussie stated in a Formspring post that the troll Kanaya is actually a lesbian. This fact is unlikely to come up explicitly in the comic since trolls place no social importance on sexual orientation and don't have a word for it.

Mark's reaction is ambiguous at best, though Rob admits the show was intentionally making jokes about him being ambiguously gay.
* ''WesternAnimation/TimeSquad'': Creator/MarkHamill and Creator/RobPaulsen on the ''[[Podcast/TalkinToonsWithRobPaulsen Talkin' Toons]]'' [[http://techjives.net/2012/05/04/039-mark-hamill-on-talkin-toons-with-rob-paulsen-weekly-voice-acting-and-voice-over-tips/ podcast]] heavily imply that the Larry 3000 is, in fact, gay. There are a few things unique about this: (1) Dave Wasson (''Time Squad'''s show creator, writer, and director) hasn't come forward to confirm or deny, and (2) It wasn't much of a secret as the show progressed and Larry's effeminate mannerisms got exaggerated.

* In the musical Hamilton, during the song "My shot", Alexander Hamilton tells new friend John Laurens "I like you a lot". Creator Lin Manuel Miranda (who also plays Alexander), confirmed that this line was supposed to imply that Laurens and Hamilton were in fact more than friends. Historians have speculated to this effect, especially using a letter that could easily be viewed as a love letter [[https://mobile.twitter.com/Lin_Manuel/status/646419967852847108]]
