* in ''ComicBook/AlbedoErmaFelnaEDF'', Toki Zha, the best friend of the titular Erma Felna, is gay for her, by words of her creator Steven A. Gallacci in 2016. Keep in mind Toki being a lesbian was a joke in the fandom since the 80's due of her being a LovableSexManiac, albeit by WordOfGod, she was this since the very beginning.

* In the extensive AlternateUniverseFic series ''Webcomic/{{Roommates|2009}}'', Bowser Koopa, Jr.'s nerdy brother Iggy Koopa is known to have a girlfriend, but also seems remarkably comfortable with gay topics (even where RuleThirtyFour is involved). When Junior [[ComingOutStory came out of the closet]] and revealed that Jojo had been his boyfriend, Iggy even affectionately asked which one of them was on top during sex. The ''Roommates'' session writer, [=TreIII=], revealed separately that Iggy is actually not just straight, but ''completely'' straight -- he has no latent same-sex leanings whatsoever that could make him in any way uncomfortable with gay people, so he can talk about it frankly in perfect personal comfort. It is actually modern LGBT [[TruthInTelevision common wisdom]] that arrow-straight people are usually the ''most'' comfortable around gay people (compare Creator/DanielRadcliffe), and that most {{Heteronormative Crusader}}s are ArmoredClosetGay[=/=]Bi and irritably expending greater effort suppressing or hiding same-sex tendencies (compare the large number of high-profile right-wing gay sex scandals).

** Dorian from ''Videogame/DragonAgeInquisition'' was revealed by the game developers to be the first fully gay playable character in the game, making him not just the first gay playable character in the series but made the game itself be the first Broward game to feature a playable gay character. His sexuality was reveled months before the game was released.
* ''Videogame/MassEffectAndromeda'': Jaal, a playable alien character was revealed by developers to be bisexual. Originally when the game was released, he was only available as a romance option for the female main character but through fan reviews and comments on how to make the game better, developers decided to make Jaal an available romance option for both the male and female Ryder. They officially made him bisexual through update patch 1.08, revealing his sexuality through the patch details on what patch 1.08 was updating. Because of this, its also considered to be a case of AscendedFanon.

** Earlier, some of the show creators had said they originally intended to make Geordi gay on Next Generation, but backed down from it. This may explain why he consistently had little luck with women; some of the earlier ExpandedUniverse novels are also dripping with HoYay. (In ''A Call to Darkness'', when Geordi is ordered off duty to relax, he heads to the holodeck and activates his program of Ancient Greece, and spends a lot of time walking around holding Homer's hand and talking in rather intimate fashion.)

* Creator/RobertCarlyle believes that his Begbie character in ''Film/{{Trainspotting}}'' is secretly gay and in love with Renton because he can't understand why else a man who hates drugs would hang around with an addict and follow him to London and also because he doesn't beat or kill the woman he gets off with who turns out to be a man.
