It's pretty obvious in the film itself, though, as she's introduced hitting on Dr. Erin Gilbert and spends the majority of her interactions flirting with her (and to a lesser extent the other Ghostbusters). A deleted scene has Holtzmann proudly declare that she and Erin are dating, and when Erin denies it, she's visibly disappointed.

This may be because of {{Media Watchdog}}s or fear of backlash. It can also be due to [[TheLawOfConservationOfDetail Conservation Of Detail]]. On the other hand, most readers will assume a character is heterosexual when their orientation isn't developed in text. Thus, this may be a publicity appeal to a gay audience while not upsetting that part of the audience who feels uneasy about this. Or it could just be one big publicity stunt.

Yes, really.

** Yuu and Mika are seemingly confirmed gay, not that it was hard to tell with their HoYay and complete focus on one another. Mika's voice actor mentioned in an interview as Mika being tsundere for Yuu also states "To Mikaela, Yuuichirou is his reason for life. He’s his everything."

The series's creator has stated that Mika's attachment to Yuu is stronger than his attachment to blood [[http://mimesisemblance.tumblr.com/post/117502956991/ons-qa-what-mikaela-chan-likes]]. Mika is already known to be an exception to many of the established vampiric traits, such as being able to shed tears and to refuse to drink human blood.

* Paul Dini has gone on record that Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy, within the {{DCAU}}, have a same-sex relationship going on (presumably when the Joker isn't around). This was never part of the animated series itself (as it aired in a kids' time slot), but it was hinted at when they did the SexyShirtSwitch thing when not out committing crimes. There was [[http://i535.photobucket.com/albums/ee357/Pichu_Chu/lesbiansbl1.png more hinting in a comic book]] set in the same [[TheVerse Verse]]. The sheer amount of subtext hinting to this crossed the line in the comic and became just plain text.

* 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. 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 lovers.

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 lovers.
