* Knockout from ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'' is gay according to the creators, but the way they worded their explanation was [[UnfortunateImplications so unintentionally offensive it could cause an awkward silence in the Void.]] [[AmbiguouslyGay Not that they had not dropped a lot of hints beforehand.]] The problems are depicted [[http://28.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lmk3ueoHl31qbmslxo1_500.png here]] by the author of ''Webcomic/{{Shortpacked}}''. For added awkwardness, the character listening is a gay Transformers fan.

** Creator/StevenMoffat has said that [[http://www.bleedingcool.com/2012/05/14/steven-moffat-outs-river-song-as-bisexual/ River is bi]], and that the Doctor doesn't understand concepts like "gay" and "straight". The Doctor has been flirty with male companions for years now, and was quite explicitly bisexual in the ''Literature/EighthDoctorAdventures'' novels and the (now definitely non-canon) ''WebAnimation/ScreamOfTheShalka'' series... but Moffat's statement on Twitter has finally made it canon.
** In Jack's introductory episode, there was a scene in which the Doctor explained to Rose how people from the future tend to be more ''fluid'' in matters of love. So he clearly understands the ways humans define sexuality, even if he doesn't follow them. And in "Rose", Nine picks up a gossip mag, looks at the cover and says "They'll never work. He's gay and she's an alien."
** [[ZigzaggingTrope Zigzagged]] with Clara Oswald in her final series. Twice it is mentioned that Clara has had off-screen romance with Creator/JaneAusten, both times explicit enough to state that Clara is bisexual, but are spoken as throwaway lines. In interviews, actress Creator/JennaColeman has been the one to say if Clara is bisexual, but also hangs onto the fact that it is ''also'' up to audience interpretation.

** Creator/StevenMoffat has said that [[http://www.bleedingcool.com/2012/05/14/steven-moffat-outs-river-song-as-bisexual/ River is bi]], bi]]. For years, her attraction to women was never mentioned in-universe; even by the time of her intended final appearance all the fandom had was WordOfGod. This being ''Doctor Who'' though, she eventually came back at an earlier point in her timeline, and finally talked about having had female partners.
** The sexuality of the Doctor is still a topic of much debate, with the two main interpretations being that she's either bisexual/pansexual or asexual. Evidence for both views can be found in-universe, with Doctors from the Eighth onward happily kissing their companions regardless of gender while generally staying away from more intimate entanglements. Creator/StevenMoffat finally took it upon himself to say on twitter
that the Doctor doesn't understand ''understand'' the human concepts like "gay" of gay and "straight". The Doctor has been flirty straight on a personal level. Since the character's development is ongoing to the point of being pretty much eternal, this discourse eventually did make its way into the series with male companions for years now, and was quite explicitly bisexual in the ''Literature/EighthDoctorAdventures'' novels and the (now definitely non-canon) ''WebAnimation/ScreamOfTheShalka'' series... but Moffat's statement on Twitter has finally made it canon.
** In Jack's introductory episode, there was a scene in which
the Doctor explained to Rose how people from the future tend to be more ''fluid'' in matters explaining that his entire species is genderfluid and has wildly different ideas of love. So he clearly understands the ways male/female dynamics than humans define sexuality, even if he doesn't follow them.

* ''Literature/HarryPotter'' has Albus Dumbledore. Rowling revealed he was gay after the end of the series [[note]] [[spoiler: by which he had died already]] [[/note]], and as a result of a fan asking her if he'd ever found love himself. He kept out of romantic relationships and such because he once fell for a man and [[spoiler:neglected his family, resulting in horrible consequences and the death of his sister (and that's not even getting into the fact that said man was [[PredecessorVillain Gellert Grindelwald]], who would go on to become the equivalent of Wizard Hitler, as the previous Dark Lord before Voldemort)]]. Essentially, Dumbledore is gay, but a CelibateHero. This is also why Dumbledore isn't a case of [[spoiler:BuryYourGays: he died not as a direct result of being gay, but to help his proteges]]. Justified trope: UK law at the time (Section 2A to the Local Government Act 1986) prevented any books containing gay characters from being included in school libraries. Yes, really. During a scriptwriting meeting for one of the ''Film/HarryPotter'' films, she handed back a script page in which Dumbledore spoke about a girl he "knew" once with a note saying "He's gay!"

* Tom and Carl, the two local Advisory Senior wizards from ''Literature/YoungWizards''. They share a house but other than that could be mistaken for HeterosexualLifePartners. In fact, Nita thinks to herself at one point that they're 'just buddies' when worrying whether a partnership has to be romantic in nature, so it doesn't seem to be well known in universe either. This is probably due to them being expies of the two major characters from her significantly less popular ''Door Into...'' series, in which the characters were explicitly. The series author apparently confirmed this to a private audience but [[FlipFlopOfGod later took it back]] saying that [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed Tom and Carl were based on two close friends of hers who were both straight and that she doesn't want to disclose Tom and Carl's orientation for the sake of her friends privacy.

* ''WesternAnimation/TimeSquad'': In a ''Podcast/TalkinToonsWithRobPaulsen'' podcast featuring a conversation between Rob Paulsen and Mark Hamil, the voice actors for Tuddrussel and Larry 3000 respectively, Paulsen and Hamil heavily imply in the podcast that Larry is gay. They both crack numerous jokes towards Larry about how "there was no ambiguity to his sexual orientation". Paulsen has also made references to Larry's sexuality in other podcasts before and after this one. However, there is no word about whether Tuddrussel is in a relationship with Larry as the huge amounts of HoYay that occurred between Larry and Tuddrussel was never mentioned or brought up in the podcast. The show itself made heavy implications about Larry's orientation so the podcast was basically showing that Larry's implied gayness was not wishful thinking by viewers.
