* A fair amount of Creator/DougWalker's ''WebVideo/ToBoldlyFlee'' commentary is confirming that OneTruePairing Zod/Terl was intentionally written as a married couple.

* A fair amount of Creator/DougWalker's ''WebVideo/ToBoldlyFlee'' commentary is confirming that OneTruePairing Zod/Terl was intentionally written as a married couple. He's also stated for the record that Donnie/Yo/Egoraptor in WebVideo/DemoReel was a genuine LoveTriangle and not just a queerbait joke.

* Supposedly there's an interview somewhere with the writers of the ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' series stating that Miles Edgeworth just isn't interested in women but finds Phoenix Wright to look rather nice. This is backed up in canon by the fact that Edgeworth finds his ChickMagnet qualities somewhere between [[ChasteHero confusing]] and [[AbhorrentAdmirer disturbing]] and the massive amounts of FoeYay-turned-HoYay he shares with Phoenix. [[http://gaygamer.net/2006/10/phoenix_wright_gay_shocker.html This article]] touches on it, and the translated text is from one of the ''Gyakuten Saiban'' guides.

To LGBT fans and allies, it can often come off as a cop-out: Saying "Oh, guess what? Bob, whom we never hinted about in the slightest? Totally gay!" after the series is safely over is not an adequate substitute for having the courage to actually include LGBT characters. For extra frustration on the part of these people, expect this to happen frequently to [[BuryYourGays characters who are dead by the series' end.]] Because of this, the work will probably be labelled a SupposedlyRebelliousSeries.

* ''Webcomic/AvasDemon}} zig-zags this trope, revealing in-comic that Odin's sister has a girlfriend, while Gil is presented as AmbiguouslyGay with the author confirming his orientation, and Ava is as yet a matter of Word Of Bi.

* ''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.

* In ''Videogame/{{MortalKombatX}}'', Kung Jin has some rather telling dialogue when talkling to Raiden in his flashback. WordOfGod [[https://twitter.com/domcianciolo/status/588050845763301376 confirmed]] that this conversation indeed meant that Kung Jin was canonically gay.

** Online, Pierce actually wrote about experiences she had with a number of fans that caused her to move away from WordOfGay and really push herself and her publisher to put more obviously LBGTQ characters in her stories. They were so moved and thankful for her occasional lines and sub-text about these characters that she felt obligated to put more emphasis on topic.

* The writers of ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'' have confirmed that they intended to portray Victoria Hand and Isabelle Hartley as ex-lovers, like their comic book counterparts, until they realised the UnfortunateImplications associated with [[spoiler:[[BuryYourGays introducing just two LGBT characters into a two-dozen-strong cast and then killing them both off almost immediately]], and without them ever actually appearing in the same episode, let alone the same scene.]] The fandom has generally treated this as confirmed WordOfGay all the same.
