->'''Marty:''' I wasn't sure if you were gay. I mean, I knew the ad was up in Triangle Books, but I wasn't sure if it was you specifically.\\
'''Paulie:''' Heh, well, it's all of us, dear. We're all gay here. I'm gay, and unless my instincts are on the blink, you are too. Or else, you have a thing for hanging out in gay bookstores.
-->-- ''ComicBook/{{Circles}}''

The overwhelming majority of fictional works center around heterosexual characters, with anyone else being a Token Minority or nonexistent. Some gay-themed media, however, does the exact opposite by making most (if not all) of the characters gay or otherwise non-heterosexual. As such, it will generally have a wider variety of QueerAsTropes instead of pigeonholing the characters into one particular stereotype, sometimes making the characters into sort of a gay SixStudentClique or FiveTokenBand. The few token straight characters that appear will usually be {{fag hag}}s, dyke tykes, token homophobes, or family members of the main characters. Predictably the [[BuryYourGays mortality rate of gay characters]] tends to drop significantly in cases where most of the cast is gay, while the chance of a Happy Ending increases.

This is a common result of [[WriteWhatYouKnow the writers being gay or bisexual themselves]], but writing in the YaoiGenre and YuriGenre, or the author (and the audience) being a {{Yaoi Fan|girl}} or a YuriFan, straight writers can create works that fulfill this trope as well.

Not to be confused with EveryoneIsGay, which is about {{fanfic}}s where the entire cast is [[SuddenlySexuality suddenly gay]]. While some examples center more around bisexual characters, this is distinct from EveryoneIsBi, in which gender and sexual orientation are simply treated as a non-issue.

Despite what you might expect from the oft-referenced 10% statistic, this is reasonably common in RealLife, since people typically build social circles around shared perspectives and experiences, meaning that a gay character with mostly queer supporting cast is as much to be expected as a soldier character with a mostly military supporting cast. And if the work is set in a {{Gayborhood}} it's even more likely.


[[folder: Anime & Manga]]
* ''Manga/WifeAndWife'', being about a 'de facto married' lesbian couple, and their lesbian neighbors, is very obviously this.
* Sons of Eve, a manga by ''Manga/FromEroicaWithLove'' creator Aoike Yasuko. There is only 1 heterosexual, and maybe 2 bisexual characters in the entire series, and this includes one-shot characters.
* {{Justified|Trope}} in the sci-fi novel/OVA ''LightNovel/AiNoKusabi'' which is set on a planet where there are so few females that all the men have to find some other ways to *ahem* relieve the stress.
* ''Manga/CreoTheCrimsonCrises'' has enough of its cast lesbian to make an all girl LoveDodecahedron.
* ''Anime/{{ICE}}''; when there are no men anymore, what are the remaining women to do?
* ''Manga/IonoTheFanatics'' and ''Manga/TheMikosWordsAndTheWitchesIncantations'', both by Creator/MiyabiFujieda. The former has the eponymous queen's lesbian harem number somewhere in the ''thousands''.
* ''Manga/KuroganePukapukaTai'', an ImprobablyFemaleCast in which only one female character has been shown to have interest in men.
* ''Shojo Sect'' is set at an AllGirlSchool and consists of a series of short stories about different pairings at the school. The protagonist, Momoko, even [[TeacherStudentRomance briefly has an affair with her homeroom teacher]], [[IllGirl Ms. Hayato.]] Though the crux of the series centers on [[{{deuteragonist}} Shinobu]] as she pines after Momoko and [[WillTheyOrWontThey her attempts to get Momoko to realize her feelings for her.]]
* ''Manga/KiniroMosaic'' has an all-female cast with every girl paired with someone, no exceptions, to the point that the author invented some girls half into the manga so the characters that were alone at the start, aren't anymore after the 2nd half.
* ''Manga/OtomeKikanGretel'' outdoes even ''LightNovel/StrawberryPanic'' as every character shown has to be a girl interested in other girls.
* The anime ''Manga/{{Saki}}'' has a [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters huge]] [[ImprobablyFemaleCast mostly female cast]]. Within the cast, the girls show a fair bit of romantic interest in each other and absolutely no interest in any guy. (Yuuki forms an exception as she seems to be the token heterosexual girl).
* ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'' has a near-entirely bisexual cast, although one could assume this is just the norm in a setting based entirely on sexual metaphors.
* ''Manga/SasamekiKoto'' centres on a group of [[SchoolgirlLesbians highschool lesbians]] who form a clique together.
* ''LightNovel/StrawberryPanic'' has no ''men'' in sight anywhere, and almost every character is either in or pursuing a romantic relationship with another girl.
* ''Manga/StrawberryShakeSweet'', about an idol at a talent agency. She's gay, her junior's gay by the end of the manga, her hair dresser's gay, her hair dresser's StalkerWithACrush is gay, the person two levels below her manager is gay, and the random photographer who takes Ran's picture is gay, and the random model is gay, and the only band in the entire world is composed of four lesbians. In fact, the only recurring character who ''isn't'' gay is her aforementioned manager--and that's PlayedForLaughs.
* ''Anime/StrikeWitches'' has almost all of its ImprobablyFemaleCast members showing attraction towards females ranging from [[LesYay subtle]] to [[SchoolgirlLesbians overt]].
* ''LightNovel/{{Sukisho}}'' is notable for having no women depicted at all within the anime. All relationships, pornography, and everything is male-oriented homosexual in nature. [[FridgeLogic Raising the question,]] how were they all born if there are no girls? And why does Sora seem to be so weirded out by homosexuality in the early episodes, given that it seems to be the norm?
* ''Anime/{{Vandread}}''. Justified in that the main cast comes from planets that are all female and all male.
* ''Manga/YuruYuri'' has a main cast of eight girls, all but one of whom have romantic connections to at least one of the others.
* ''Manga/{{Chintsubu}}'' has a cast of four boys, all of whom are either gay or bi.
* ''Manga/MiyukiChanInWonderland''. All the characters are women...and all want to jump Miyuki's bones.
* ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' is the closest you can get without frequent on-screen makeouts. Between TheOriginalSeries, the manga, the spin-offs, the games ([[http://lovemedont.tumblr.com/post/70400905837/ especially]] ''The Battle Pentagram'', [[FanNickname also known as]] ''The [[PanderingToTheBase Pandering]] Pentagram''), the movies, and an endless array of shippy official art, all of the girls show lots of attraction towards and interest in other girls, and the staff themselves ship Homura/Madoka and Kyoko/Sayaka. Even Hitomi, originally the token straight girl, is shown in [[VideoGame/PuellaMagiMadokaMagicaPortable the PSP game]] to be attracted to Homura.
* ''Manga/SakuraTrick'' has an all-female cast, and, well, Haruka and Yuu are a couple, as are Shizuku and Kotone. Yuzu and Kaede ''aren't'', but they are a pair of close friends with no noticeable interest in guys that willingly hang out with a group of lesbians, so make of that what you will. The only other major character, Mitsuki, has a crush on Haruka.
* In ''Manga/OnePiece'' Amazon Lily has only female citizens, and the only way of reproduction is leaving the island with the pirate crew and coming back with newborn daughters. Thanks to Empress Boa Hancock being the WorldsMostBeautifulWoman, everybody on Amazon Lily is lesbian for her.
* ''Manga/AnoKoNiKisuToShirayuriWo'' tells the budding or already formed love stories of several couple of girls in an ElaborateUniversityHigh. By volume 5, Yurine and her sister love the model student Ayaka, Ayaka struggles very hard to not love Yurine, track team star Mizuki and manager Moe love each other, so do Yukina and Towako from the gardening club, Chiharu loves her senpai Maya, Izumi loves her senpai Chiharu, Kaoru has a heavily implied crush on her classmate Yurine and freshman Itsuki has apparently loved her childhood friend Sawa since before grade school. The only odd one out is Chiharu's friend Ai, who doesn't seem romantically involved with any girl. Yet.
* ''Manga/{{Yuyushiki}}'' has an all-female cast, with everyone wanting to get in Yui's pants, and there's some crushes between other girls, like Kei towards Aikawa.
* Almost all the major male characters in ''Manga/{{Yuureitou}}'' have some level of male attraction. Marube is a DepravedBisexual, Tetsuo says he's straight but [[IfItsYouItsOkay falls for Amano]], Yamashina is attracted to men (and boys), and Amano originally likes Tetsuo as a woman but accepts him as a man but still likes him.
* In the {{Yuri}} Manga/OtomeNoTeikoku almost all of the main characters tend to be more interested in their own gender than the opposite
* ''LightNovel/MariaSamaGaMiteru'' contains a lot of HomoeroticSubtext between almost all of the characters and is considered the de facto GirlsLove series. Even [[spoiler:Sachiko's cousin and [[KissingCousins fiance]] per an ArrangedMarriage]] is canonically gay.
* ''Manga/PrunusGirl'' has Shion and Kana, a very outward lesbian couple, Non who's a HopelessSuitor for Shion, two teachers that also turn out to be lesbian, and [[WholesomeCrossdresser not-girl]] Kizuna who has seemingly turned the entire male population of the school gay. The other main character Maki tries his hardest [[StupidSexyFlanders to persuade himself that his attraction toward Kizuna is not romantic.]] The remaining straight characters are a YaoiFangirl and a girl [[BrotherSisterIncest in love with her twin brother.]]
* Almost all of the major characters in ''Manga/SeraphOfTheEnd'' have a level of same sex attraction while some also like the opposite sex as well. Mika and Yuu are implied to have feelings for one another, Shinoa likes to tease Mitsuba while having intimate scenes with her, Shinya flirts with Guren like its going out of style, Ferid is a DepravedBisexual with suggestive scenes with Crowley, Yuu, Mika, and Guren, Crowley flirts with Yuu (he touches his back and calls him "my cute little livestock") and Ferid (in an omake in the fanbook), Lacus apparently only prefers the blood of young boys, Mito is hinted to be BiTheWay (her love for Guren and implied interest towards Shigure, Sayuri, and especially Mahiru), and there's hints of Kimizuki and Yoichi being homosexual (based on the fanbook and Yoichi's curious blushing interest in whether Kimizuki is gay.)
* Every named character in ''Anime/ValkyrieDriveMermaid'' is a lesbian.
* ''Anime/LegendOfTheBlueWolves'': Pretty much every character given screen time is gay-[[DepravedHomosexual Captain Continental and his subordinates]] and the more [[BuryYourGays sympathetic]] [[YaoiGuys Leonard and Jonathan]].
* ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'' has managed to develop a strong following among LGBT fans, thanks to a cast of attractive characters prone to HoYay or LesYay, and several canon LGBT characters. The series includes the bisexual (or possibly pansexual) Tsukiyama, Naki who has complicated feelings towards his old leader Yamori, Shousei who describes Naki with a romantic wording and Miza even says Naki has the love of his male subordinates, Touka who is described as having feelings of love for Kaneki and her friend Yoriko to an extent, homosexual Drag Queen Nico, possibly bisexual Uta, DepravedBisexual Nutcracker (she goes after guys but also flirts with a woman before killing her) and Eto (is implied to have a homicidal crush on Kaneki and gets ominously intimate with Kanae), and leaves a rather ambiguous situation concerning Juuzou's gender identity and Abara's (Suzuya's male subordinate) implied feelings for him. The sequel has earned considerable praise for revealing Tooru Mutsuki to be a transgender man, portraying him in a respectful and accurate fashion. [[spoiler: His feelings of love towards Sasaki as revealed in chapter 114 help.]] Big Madam is also hinted in the sequel as being a trans woman as she is referred to with male pronouns at her death with incestuous feelings for her adopted son Suzuya. Also, Matsuri is revealed to be gay and in love with Urie. Among the new Quinx, Hsiao is hinted to have a crush on Saiko, Hige is admiring of both male and female coworkers, and Saiko states she's willing to be anyone's bride no matter their gender.


[[folder:Comic Books]]
* In most of the comics by the German cartoonist Ralf König, the main characters are all gay men. He has even been accused of being a bit of a sexist, since the supporting female characters that appear in his comics tend not to be shown in a positive light.
* The message boards of ''ComicBook/PrideHigh'' consist overwhelmingly of gay characters. And since these characters are often given cameos instead of generic extras in the actual comic, Poseidon Prep may be the gayest superhero school in exstance.
* ''Small Favors'', on top of having an all-lesbian cast, [[LadyLand there aren't even any men among the background characters or mentioned in dialogue]].
* ''ComicBook/{{Circles}}'' provides the page quote and is a gay UsefulNotes/{{Furry|Fandom}} comic book series featuring 6 gay men living in one apartment building. Even beyond this, a questionable number of shopkeepers and friends also seem to be gay.
* Another well-known furry comic ''Associated Student Bodies'' also falls victim to this trope, but as it's gay-themed erotic fiction this was probably to be expected.
* Nearly every female character in ''ComicBook/TankVixens'' is either a lesbian or bisexual. And one who was supposedly straight came out of the closet in the second issue.
* Creator/KieronGillen's run on ''ComicBook/YoungAvengers''. By the end the team consists of Wiccan and Hulkling (gay couple), Miss America (lesbian, experimented with a guy but didn't like it), Prodigy (bisexual), Noh-Varr (doesn't subscribe to your bizarre human categories), Loki (nonbinary, bisexual, and the literal patron god of queer people), and Kate Bishop. The final issue had this dialogue exchange:
-->'''Kate:''' Am I the only person on the team who's straight?\\
'''America:''' Princess. I've seen the way you look at me. You're not '''that''' straight.
* Of the thirteen protagonists of ''ComicBook/TheWickedAndTheDivine'', [[BiTheWay five are bi]], [[{{Asexuality}} one is ace]], one is a trans lesbian, and [[IfItsYouItsOkay one "prefers guys" but is willing to kiss or sleep with girls on occasion]]. [[WeHardlyKnewYe We have no clue about Tara]], and Minerva is only thirteen and is more preoccupied with her impending death than with her sexuality. The Morrigan and Baph are dating and are presumably straight, and TokenEvilTeammate Woden is heterosexual.
* ''ComicBook/DCComicsBombshells'' features several characters who are canonically lesbian or bisexual in the main DC universe (Batwoman, Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, Catwoman, Wonder Woman) but also gives an explicit lesbian or bisexual AdaptationalSexuality change to other characters who in mainstream continuity are entirely straight or only the subject of HomoeroticSubtext (Mera).

[[folder:Comic Strips]]
* ''ComicStrip/DykesToWatchOutFor''. It's all in [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin the title]].
* Many other queer comics like ''ComicStrip/ChelseaBoys'', and ''ComicBook/BitchyButch''.
* The ''Magazine/DoctorWhoMagazine'' ''Doctor Who'' comic strip has tended to do this with its original companions since the nineties: they have included Izzy (lesbian, although this was not actually confirmed until her final story, after a lot of HomoeroticSubtext), Fey (AnythingThatMoves and [[AmbiguousGenderIdentity possibly]] either a trans man or non-binary), and Majenta (bisexual). The Doctor is, of course, also hella queer.

[[folder:Fan Fiction]]
* ''FanFic/MyLesbianLifeWithMonsterGirlsMonsterYurisume'': Main character Yuisu, as well as most of her homestays, are gay or bisexual.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* ''Film/ButImACheerleader'', which is set in an ex-gay camp. It also has one of the most straightforward examples of [[SixStudentClique Six Homosexual Clique]].
* ''Film/VelvetGoldmine''.
* The short film ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ROXTFfkcfo Love Is All You Need]]'' is set in an AlternateUniverse were homosexuality is the predominant societal norm and heterosexuals are the frowned upon, ostracized minority.
* ''Film/TheBoysInTheBand'' is the earliest film example of this trope, right down to the [[FiveTokenBand diverse]] set of characters with little in common besides their homosexuality.
* ''Film/BetterThanChocolate'', which is set in Vancouver, B.C.'s lesbian community. The cast also includes bisexual and transgender characters.
* ''Film/TheBrokenHeartsClubARomanticComedy'' is set in West Hollywood and revolves around the lives of gay friends.
* The 2004 SlasherMovie ''[=HellBent=]'', although the mortality drop rule is averted for obvious reasons.
* There is also its DistaffCounterpart, ''Make a Wish'', and ''The Gay Bed and Breakfast of Terror''
* ''Film/TheAdventuresOfPriscillaQueenOfTheDesert'' has for its three main characters a transgender woman, a CampGay, and a divorced father who might be termed bisexual, although he doesn't embrace the label. Some {{butch lesbian}}s appear too.
* Also, ''Film/ToWongFooThanksForEverythingJulieNewmar''. Straight cast (most are icons of machismo, actually), gayest characters possible.
* ''Film/AnotherGayMovie'', apparently set in a world where straight people don't exist.
* ''Film/TheTroublemakers'', ''The Yo-Yo Gang'', and ''The Lollipop Generation'' - three queercore films by G.B. Jones that are as gay as they come (but she prefers the word "queer").
* ''Film/FlamingCreatures'' by Jack Smith
* ''Film/ScorpioRising'' by Kenneth Anger
* The heroine, her boyfriend, and an anonymous minor ballet dancer are the only straight characters in the 1948 movie ''The Red Shoes''. Given the time period, this trope is played more subtextually than is typically the case for works of this nature.
* ''Film/HighArt''
* ''Noah's Arc: Jumping the Broom'' and ''The Skinny'', the former being the movie continuation of the Noah's Arc series and the latter by the same creator with different characters in a different locale.
* The German film ''Romeos'' has an interesting relationship with this trope: Not only does it have a Cast Full of Gay (its main character is about the coming-of-age of a gay transgender man, whose best friend is a lesbian), this trope was cited as the reason by the German film committee FSK to rate the movie 16+, calling it "disorienting for youth". After massive backlash - from "the man in the street", LBGT societies [[EpicFail and the ex-minister of Bavaria (which you can see as "the Texas of Germany")]], the FSK at first tried to just [[OrwellianEditor reword their written reasoning]], which lead to the StreisandEffect. In the end, they were forced to revise their rating, giving it a 12+ pass. According to their own site, the FSK is composed mostly of members aged 50+. To put that in perspective: Both Hangover movies have gotten 12+ ratings without a hitch in Germany.
* In ''Film/KillYourDarlings'', the main characters are all gay or bisexual (but probably gay).
* ''Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow'' only has 8 characters, and nearly all of them are bisexual. Special mention, however, must go to [[ExtremeOmnisexual Frank]]. This trope is also in effect with many [[AudienceParticipation shadow casts]] for the movie.
* ''{{Film/Twist}}'', which reimagines Fagin's gang of pickpockets in ''OliverTwist'' as a stable of [[{{UsefulNotes/Toronto}} Church]] [[GayBorhood Street]] [[TheOldestProfession rentboys]]. Insert "[[{{Musical/Oliver}} attack the rear]]" joke here.

* When the ''Literature/TalesOfTheCity'' series first came on the scene, it was serialized in the ''San Francisco Chronicle''. Maupin's editor told him that under no circumstances could more than half the cast be gay. Maupin responded by writing a bestiality scene between a socialite and her dog, saying that the dog should be counted as straight. [[CensorDecoy The scene]] never saw print and Maupin was given leeway to have as many gay characters as served the story.
* ''Les Amitiés Particulières'' by Roger Peyreffite is one of the earliest examples of this. It can basically be summarized as ''Literature/DangerousLiaisons'' with young Catholic boys. The story takes place is an extremely religious boarding school for boys... Except Peyreffite shows how such an environment actually augments the chances of one embracing homosexuality. Most characters are gay or bi.
* The Mina Davis books ''[[Literature/HungoverAndHandcuffed Hungover and Handcuffed]]'' and ''[[Literature/AssholeYakuzaBoyfriend Asshole Yakuza Boyfriend]]'' feature chiefly queer casts- especially among recurring characters- and no explicitly straight characters (though a few are probably safe to assume), though you have to rely on WordOfGod for the sexuality of some of the more secondary characters.
* ''The Counterfeiters'' by André Gide is an even earlier example of this. Most of the male characters seem to be either gay or bi and (sometimes unacknowledged) homoerotic feelings for each other abound. There is also an inversion of BuryYourGays, as the only character that dies [[spoiler:(by accidental suicide)]] is absolutely straight but simply [[TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth too good for this earth]].
* The Sarah Waters novel (and later BBC series) ''Literature/TippingTheVelvet''. Almost all of the major characters are lesbians, and at one point the {{Bifauxnen}} heroine works as a [[WholesomeCrossdresser male]] [[HookerWithAHeartOfGold prostitute]]... for male clients.
* ''[[Literature/ALandFitForHeroes The Steel Remains]]'' by Richard K. Morgan. Two of the three main characters are canonically gay, plus numerous side-characters, several who act as love interests for the main characters.
* The ''Literature/WarchildSeries''. 95% are either confirmed gay or bi.
* ''Literature/TheBeeboBrinkerChronicles'', a classic pulp series that explores the intertwining lives of several lesbians (and their GayBestFriend) in 1950's Greenwich Village.
* The Thriler/Romance series ''Literature/CutAndRun'' has a Cast Full of Bi. Zane and at least three members of Sidewinder are bisexual (bi-demisexual in Kelly's case) and Digger is asexual, basically making Owen the token straight friend.
** Several major supporting characters are also gay, including a crossover with another work of the authors' in which the main couple function as co-leads for much of the book.
* ''Boy Meets Boy'' by David Levithan. The only straight characters with more than half a line are the main character's best female friend and her ex-boyfriend. All the others are gay, lesbian, or transgender.
* ''Daughters of a Coral Dawn'' and its sequels are set mostly among female-only settlements, both on Earth and the distant planet Maternas. This is justified: Men are now [[TheUnfairSex über-arseholes]] and the women are super-intelligent HalfHumanHybrid lesbians (with a dash of KissingCousins) who can reproduce by using an illegal fertility drug called Estrova. This gets taken to OneGenderRace in the third book.
* Laurie J. Marks' ''Literature/ElementalLogic'' fantasy series.
* The main characters in Creator/CharlesStross' ''Rule 34'' are a lesbian cop, her bisexual old flame, a married man who cheats on his wife with other men and a [[DepravedBisexual bisexual]] [[TheSociopath sociopath]].
* Most major characters in ''Series/NeverWipeTearsWithoutGloves''.
* Nearly every major character from ''Literature/GloryInTheThunder'' is either gay or bi, including the [[PhysicalGod Physical Gods]] and [[ArtificialHuman Artificial Humans]]. Even the elderly {{Mad Oracle}} guy.
* Three of the four major characters in ''Literature/TheDogs'' are StraightGay with the other being ChaoticStupid with a dash of BiTheWay.
* The latter half of ''Literature/TheWellOfLoneliness'', which follows the ComingOfAge of lesbian Stephen Gordon, is largely set in the gay subculture of early 20th-century Paris, and naturally most of the named and background characters are gay or bi.
* Many of the characters in the ''Literature/DemonMeatForDinner'' series are either gay, lesbian, or bi. This is likely due to the author being queer.
* Out of the entire cast of ''Literature/TheLineageOfTellus'', only the lead female and her eventual lover are arguably 'straight'. The rest of the cast is fairly sexually fluid, except for Tris and Finn, who comfortably slip into the IfItsYouItsOkay trope.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* Most stuff Creator/RussellTDavies has done since 1998:
** ''Series/QueerAsFolk'' was about the gay scene in Manchester. All three main cast members are gay.
** ''Series/BobAndRose'' is about a gay man falling in love with a woman and being ostracized by the gay community.
** ''Series/{{Torchwood}}'', had, according to WordOfGod, five bisexuals (well, four bisexuals and an omnisexual) in series 1 and 2, one of whom happens to be in a stable straight relationship. All of the main characters are shown with both men and women, although with varying levels of bisexuality. (In order of queerness: Gwen is seen kissing a girl when she's under mind-control; Owen is seen hooking up with a man once; Ianto claims he's only attracted to Jack, not to all men, but dates him romantically; Tosh dates one woman and and man and doesn't elaborate on her overall sexuality; Jack is properly omnisexual.)
** ''Series/{{Cucumber Banana Tofu}}'' is once again about gay men living in Manchester.
* In the US version of ''Series/QueerAsFolk'', half of the actors in the cast are openly gay. They ended up (either by design or by coincidence) pairing one gay actor (those playing Justin, Ben and Emmett) with one straight actor (those playing Brian, Michael and Ted).
* ''Series/TheLWord'', which is ''Series/QueerAsFolk'' with lesbians
* Also, though it's far less well known, there's ''Series/NoahsArc''. In fact, pretty much any scripted Creator/{{LOGO}} show will likely feature this trope.
* Played for laughs in ''Series/LittleBritain'', in which it seems that pretty much everyone in Daffyd Thomas' village is either gay or bisexual. Considering that Daffyd is a stereotypical CampGay who bases his entire identity on smugly asserting that he's "the only gay in the village" (despite the fact that [[AmbiguouslyGay he may not actually be gay at all]]), this is a source of considerable horror and frustration for him. Also played for laughs in the Prime Minister sketches starring Creator/AnthonyHead in which the Prime Minister is blithely unaware of his entire staff being composed of flamboyantly gay men who do everything short of making out on his desk.
* ''Series/{{Action}}'' turns into this by the end. Stuart, exec Bobby G, and action star Cole are all gay. Wendy and Janice turn out to be [[spoiler: bisexual]]. Peter, the main character, is straight ... [[spoiler: but that doesn't stop him from enjoying a blow job from Cole]].
* ''Series/DantesCove''. Almost every character on the show is either gay or bisexual. Except for the one Token Straight Woman, who is, of course, a villain.
* As noted on the MistakenForGay page, a literal '''Cast''' Full of Gay appears in ''Series/{{Frasier}}''--much of the (male) cast is gay IRL, which resulted in their characters being MistakenForGay at least once.
* ''Series/LipService'', which appears to be a British version of ''Series/TheLWord''.
* ''Plan V'', an Argentine production full of lesbians.
* Most of the main male characters on ''Series/{{Smash}}'' are gay or implied to be gay.
* Most female characters on ''Series/OrangeIsTheNewBlack'' are lesbian or bisexual, including the protagonist, Piper Chapman. It could also be a case of SituationalSexuality, since the series takes place in a women's prison.
* ''[[Series/NeverWipeTearsWithoutGloves Don't Ever Wipe Tears Without Gloves]]'', which is about gay men in the eighties when AIDS began to spread.
* ''Series/{{Glee}}'', as many would expect, has nineteen confirmed queer characters - matched with the nineteen (out) actors on the show. In some cases, the characters and actors don't match up (like Creator/JaneLynch playing Sue), and some where they do are of different sexualities (like Creator/DemiLovato and Alex Newell).

* The queercore genre generally involves bands with homosexual members who discuss LGBT themes. An example would be Shitting Glitter who are currently composed of five lesbians, but had a camp gay as keyboardist and his boyfriend as dancer, and the keyboardist's straight brother as guitarist early on. As would be expected they have NWordPrivileges and often use words like such as 'dyke', 'tranny', 'fag'.
* Three of the four [[Music/TheB52s B-52]]'s are gay, as was their deceased guitarist Ricky. The exception is Cindy Wilson - Ricky's sister - who has been married since the Seventies. In recent years Fred Schneider has really amped up his camp nature, with his band the Superions...whose other two members are gay. Judging from their mailing list, it would also appear that The B's gay fanbase easily outnumbers their straight one as well.
* Brazilian [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M%C3%BAsica_popular_brasileira MPB]] has a lot of lesbian singers, to the point it's a widespread joke. If a female singer from another genre comes out, soon some will ask if she'll now do MPB.

* ''Theatre/{{RENT}}'' features seven main characters, including a gay black philosophy professor, his transgender (or possibly just a DragQueen) street-drumming girlfriend Angel (designated male at birth), a [[DepravedBisexual bisexual]] who can't seem to stay faithful, an uptight, straight-laced African American lesbian... and the three straight ones. Of course, [[spoiler:Angel is the only character who actually dies during the show, though Mimi (straight) won't last long after the show's over.]]
* Of the eight main characters in ''Theatre/AngelsInAmerica'', all five men "have sex with other men" (only three identify as gay), and there's something to be said about the apparently female Angel and her orgasmic kiss with Hannah.
* ''Oh My Godmother'' (a.k.a ''{{Literature/Cinderella}}'' with a gay twist) is set in San Francisco with the central characters being comprised of nothing but CampGay men. The only notable straight characters are the evil, homophobic stepmother and stepsisters.
* ''Theatre/TheBoysInTheBand'', as noted in the film section.
* ''Theatre/TheNormalHeart'', by Larry Kramer. Also literally (somewhat) true for the 2011 revival cast (Joe Mantello, John Benjamin Hickey and Luke Macfarlane are all out, at least). Gay actors in the 2014 film version, meanwhile, include Creator/MattBomer (Felix), Jonathan Groff (Craig), Jim Parsons (Tommy), Joe Mantello (Mickey), BD Wong (Buzzy), Stephen Spinella (Sanford), and Denis O'Hare (Hiram) -- but ''not'' Creator/MarkRuffalo (main character Ned), who initially hesitated to take the role (questioning whether or not a straight man should be playing the part) until director Ryan Murphy told him quite bluntly that he wanted the best actor for the role and Ruffalo was it.
* ''Theatre/{{Always Plenty of Light at the Starlight All Night Diner}}'' features four main characters including Sam, the Starlight's overnight janitor who's a hard butch on the outside but a real softie on the inside. Jessa, a super pregnant waitress who works at the Starlight All Night Diner and is actually totally NOT a lesbian [[spoiler: YES SHE IS]] Danni, a dinosaur nerd, and Dr Moxie, Danni's (straight???) graduate advisor. This super queer time travel adventure WITH DINOSAURS has a bit of a twist, Starlight reverses the BuryYourGays trope by [[spoiler: killing off Moxie]] the only unconfirmed lesbian.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* While it would be dishonest to say ''most'' of the characters in ''Franchise/DragonAge'' are gay, it probably has the largest number of LGBT characters out of any modern AAA video game franchise, both in the main cast of followers and major NPC[==]s, as well as the supporting casts and even minor characters in each game. Part of the reason for this is because the lead writer and creator of the franchise is [[AuthorAppeal gay himself]]. ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' in particular took this UpToEleven by making every romanceable companion (aside from one DLC character) [[EveryoneIsBi bisexual]].
* ''Artificial Academy'' games by Illusion. It is the players choice of who (and what) they want in their game and to play as anyone in the class that they have created. You can essentially have a class full of girls only or boys only, as long as the 'homo' or 'bi' option for the character is set in the maker.
** Although, when initiating 'H scenes' with two guys the game instead fades to black. But with Yuri scenes it's completely normal. Without modding the game there isn't any other way to "uncensor" the Yaoi scenes.
* ''VideoGame/TheSims'' games allow you to create a situation like this, either in a single house/family or in a entire neighboorhood, but all sims have flexible sexualities.
* ''VideoGame/EmbricOfWulfhammersCastle''. Good luck finding ANY female character that isn't into women.
* ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'', [[http://notch.tumblr.com/post/28188312756/gender-in-minecraft as Notch pointed out]], only has one gender for all mobs, which means that any creature in Minecraft is homosexual, because there is only one gender to choose from.
* Most of the playable characters in ''VideoGame/TheLastResurrection'' are bisexual or lesbian, whereas all of the villains are straight. Of course, said villains are associated with fundamental Christianity or Nazism, so that's justified.
* In ''VideoGame/ReadOnlyMemories'' every major character who is in a known relationship (or, in Lexi's case, was in one) is gay. Additionally, one of the player's major allies, TOMCAT, identifies as nonbinary (as can the player character, if you so choose).
* ''VideoGame/LuxarenAllure'': Chisa and Merel form a romance, Chisa was pining after Karuna before Merel came along, and Karuna is in love with Aurelie. That connects four out of the five main characters.
* ''VideoGame/SenranKagura''. While there is the question of [[WorldOfActionGirls availability]], and romance is repeatedly mentioned as a luxury Shinobi don't allow themselves, nearly every character who exhibits significant LesYay has explicitly rejected the idea of a heterosexual romance. A good example (and far from the only) is Asuka, who refuses a date with a guy when she notices she was only tempted for the normalcy not the companionship, and then gets into a [[FoeYay rivalry]] so intense a mutual foe mistakes them for a couple and promptly starts [[ShipperOnDeck shipping them]] - many fans interpret this as Asuka being a lesbian who hasn't figured herself out yet.
* In ''VideoGame/BlackCloset'', Elsa and all the other members of the AbsurdlyPowerfulStudentCouncil at the all-girls St. Claudine's Academy are lesbian or at least bisexual with the sole exception of Mallory. Mallory even disbelievingly wonders aloud at one point if she's the ''only'' straight girl in the entire school.
* ''VideoGame/ValkyrieDriveBhikkhuni'' has this trope as ''gameplay mechanic''
* ''VideoGame/SakuraDungeon''. Even ''with'' the ImprobablyFemaleCast you'd be hard pressed to find anyone who isn't into girls.
* Male androids are relatively recent development in ''VideoGame/NierAutomata'' so it's not too surprising that the [=YoRHa=] androids tend to go gay when they seek companionship. This is also due to androids not really viewing gender the same way humans do, favoring compatible personalities over gender. Also, the same does not hold for the Resistance as the male/female ratio among them is more balanced.

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* ''Sono Hanabira Ni Kuchizuke Wo'' is a cast full of lesbian with parents and some expanded material characters being the only characters that show any heterosexual feelings.
* [[RomanceGame There exists a full genre of yaoi and yuri games, mostly in the visual novel format]]. Many of them have this trope in action. For example, in ''Silver Chaos'' the only female that can be seen is in one of the [=CGs=] and very much dead.
** ''VisualNovel/GakuenHeaven'', justified in that the series takes place at an all-boys school. Which is named [[BoysLove BL]] [[FunWithAcronyms Academy]] - just in case you didn't get the memo that this is a {{yaoi|genre}} series.
** The cast of ''VisualNovel/HerTearsWereMyLight'' is small and only includes girls who love girls.
* Lampshaded in ''VisualNovel/DontTakeItPersonallyBabeItJustAintYourStory'', when Taylor asks if she's the only straight person in the entire class, even though she isn't (only half the cast is).
* ''VisualNovel/{{Morenatsu}}'' is this. Or it's a {{Gayborhood}} at the least.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* ''Webcomic/{{Ayuri}}'': All characters shown to be in relationships so far are lesbians.
* ''Webcomic/TheGreenEyedSniper'' has a 100% lesbian main cast (even Assistant, the sentient robot, seems to be in love with her creator, Sekhmet). [[spoiler:NO lesbian character dies!]]
* "Finn and Charlie are Hitched/ Muddlers Beat", centers around a marriage between Charlie and Finn. There are a slew of other LGBT characters like Ken, Corey, and Jake.
* ''Webcomic/MyLifeInBlue'', which centers around a bunch of young {{Performance Artist}}s. Marius is {{transgender}}, Alex is gay, and the most of the supporting characters are gay or bisexual to at least some degree. Unsurprisingly, one of the few straight characters, Alison, is a FagHag.
%%* ''Webcomic/CarpeDiem''.
* ''Webcomic/KhaosKomix'': The only apparent heterosexual of the main eight is Jamie: Nay and Charlie are clearly bi, Murfs is label-averse but seeing Tom, Tom is gay, as Mark and Amber appear to be, as does Steve, although he considers he might be bi.
* In ''Webcomic/MenageA3'', for a while, it seemed like every major character who wasn't explicitly gay or bisexual (most were the latter, in fact) was at least very deeply uncertain. This was scaled back somewhat when [=DiDi=] stopped identifying as bisexual, Sandra and Gary stopped questioning, and Kiley and Erik became more important as characters -- but then things got more complicated with all those characters in different ways. In any case, there's still a substantial majority of non-heterosexual characters. This is mostly PlayedForLaughs (and a fair bit of FanService); a modern SexComedy, in which characters actually have sex on a regular basis, has more options for jokes and surprises if almost anybody might end up in bed with anybody else.
* The main cast of ''Webcomic/BoyMeetsBoy'' consists of a gay couple, a bisexual guy, a heterosexual guy secretly in love with the bisexual guy, and the couple's landlady.
* ''Webcomic/YuMeDream''. This gets toned down and deconstructed when [[spoiler:it is revealed that it is all a dream, of a homosexual teenage girl who as a outcast, wanted friends and ones who could help her come to terms with her sexuality. Final count is two lesbians and two bisexuals.]]
* All the trolls in ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' are bi, except Kanaya who is gay by WordOfGod. Meanwhile half of the main human cast has also been confirmed or at least strongly implied to be non-straight (Dirk is gay, Rose is either gay or bi, Jake is probably bi, and Dave is also implied to be bi later on). The artist has joked that the comic will eventually collapse into a "gay singularity".
* ''Webcomic/IWasKidnappedByLesbianPiratesFromOuterSpace'', for obvious reasons.
* Of the three leads of ''Webcomic/{{Shortpacked}}'', Ethan is gay, Amber is (probably) straight, and Robin (after much confusion) identifies as "generally undefinably queer". Also, Leslie, Mike, Drew, and Conquest are clearly not straight (as well as DropInCharacter Thad and his late boyfriend Evan), and Malaya is {{Robosexual}} for Ultra Car, who is homoromantic asexual. Rick and Faz are such {{Cloudcuckoolander}}s that it's impossible to tell[[note]]Faz at one point believes that if he has sex with a woman, this will "cancel out" a previous gay encounter on the Kinsey scale[[/note]], Galasso can't tell genders apart despite having a daughter, and even [[UsefulNotes/RonaldReagan Ronnie]] seems to imply he's had affairs with men in one strip, leaving essentially just Roz, Jacob, Ken and Lucy. This is a phenomenon Amber's commented on several times, providing a quote on the Quotes page; it's also {{lampshaded}} [[http://www.shortpacked.com/index.php?id=1994 here.]]
* ''Webcomic/PennyAndAggie'' didn't start out this way, but it became clear early on that Sara of Penny's GirlPosse was gay, and when she came out halfway through, bit characters [[Franchise/ScoobyDoo Fred and Daphne]] were seen to be gay and began getting a lot more screen time, forming a second CastHerd with Sara, Aggie, and Aggie's friend Lisa, who shunned labels throughout. The eponymous pair themselves were questioning throughout, especially later on, coming out in the final arc; Stan, one of the most important supporting characters outside the two cliques, seemed to have a crush on a male friend obvious enough for other characters to comment; and DepravedBisexual Cyndi was the closest thing to a villain for about a third of the strip's run.
* The spinoff, ''Webcomic/{{QUILTBAG}}'' (look at the title), stars Sara and Lisa, with Stan playing a small role, as well as Sara's mother, who's now sleeping with a woman. Of their floor, Alex, Jade, and Bob appear to be bisexual (albeit at least the former two being {{Contest Winner Cameo}}s), Jules a lesbian, Temperance clearly interested in girls, and their RA Hank gay. There's also a subplot with an all-lesbian sorority, and Chrissy, a trans woman who partners with women, is a supporting character.
* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive''
** Of the eight characters in the main cast, we have a gay guy, a lesbian, a girl with bisexual inclinations who identifies as homoromantic, a crossdresser (but only while genderbent) who now identifies as [[{{Transsexual}} genderfluid]], a straight (but possibly asexual) girl with gender issues who sometimes wishes she were gay, a shapeshifter whose sexuality is a bit iffy (through she seems genuinely SingleTargetSexuality, a closer ''Earth'' sexuality might be demisexual or sapiosexual), a seemingly straight girl who was attracted to her ex-boyfriend [[IfItsYouItsOkay regardless of his gender]] and calls herself "Kinsey-2 at most" (and whom some in the fandom hope to see turn bisexual polyamorous), and a guy who was initially introduced as straight, but happens to be the character who ends up GenderBending most frequently, and who has since quietly acknowledged that he finds some guys attractive even when not genderbent. Confusing matters more, all of these characters have been genderbent at least once (including once ''simultaneously'' for one night) and felt attraction towards what normally would be their own gender.
*** In the secondary cast, there's now a trans* guy, two lesbians, one guy who is dating a girl but explains that it's not sexual, another gay guy, a bisexual girl who is ''really'' into transforming, and any number of cameo characters who are not cis and straight.
*** That's not even getting into genderless aliens, immortals, shapeshifters, alternative universes where characters switch out genders and sexualities like they were shoes, etc.
** PlayedForLaughs in "Identity" with [[spoiler:the five guys who saw Eliot and Sarah's breakup on the review show. When they all talk to Sarah afterwards, she suspects that at least some of them are hitting on her. When she actually talks to them about it, it turns out four of them are gay.]]
** In "Squirrel Prophet Part 2", when Justin tells Grace that 90% of people are heterosexual, she [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=1914 does some mental calculations]] and [[LampshadeHanging concludes "That can't ''possibly'' be right."]]
** [[spoiler: Susan later realizes that she can find both Elliot and Catalina (and presumably others, and certain scenarios) sexy, especially when imagining them together, but currently has no interest in actually participating in any "things" with anyone]].
* Straight characters are a minority in the cast of ''Webcomic/{{Bridges}}''.
* ''Webcomic/BandVsBand'' has a cast mostly made up of lesbian, gay, bisexual or pansexual characters.
* ''Webcomic/{{Threading}}'' has an all-lesbian cast.
* ''Webcomic/EpicLoads'': a hunky Fantasy comic full of dudes.
* ''Webcomic/FurPiled'' has, out of ALL the main characters, a single straight character.
* In ''Webcomic/SeiyuuCrush'', all of the main couples are gay, with a few other gay characters alluded to, and the remaining characters' romantic interests not confirmed.
* The main cast of ''Webcomic/SkinHorse'': Tip started out as a straight (but crossdressing) EthicalSlut before he met Artie, and is now AnythingThatMoves; Artie says Sweetheart is gay but in denial about it (she seems to have feelings for Unity); Unity herself is probably bi, since she has "funny feelings" about Tigerlily Jones, but also has a sort-of-boyfriend. Nick is straight, Moustachio probably likewise given his relationship with Hitty, and Gavotte is autosexual, since she's [[HiveMind a swarm of bees]]. (And with the exception of Moustachio, Gavotte and possibly Nick if you classify him as a human rather than a helicopter, all of them have been interested in [[InterspeciesRomance dating outside their species]]. But [[ExtremeOmnisexual especially Tip]].)
* ''{{Webcomic/Rain}}'' has a cast full of homosexuals, bisexuals, transsexuals, and almost everything in between.
* ''Webcomic/ThePrincess'' contains characters of various gender and sexual identities, including the protagonist (a trans girl who has crushes on both male and female characters) and her best friend who eventually identifies as nonbinary.
* ''Webcomic/IgnitionZero'' has its main cast consist of various characters who fit on the lgbt spectrum. Robbie is a homoromantic asexual, Orson is asexual, Neve is pansexual and genderfluid, and Martin is an aromantic heterosexual.
* ''Webcomic/SisterClaire'': It's easier to list who ''isn't'' LGBT: literally no one, as per WordOfGod. As the creators are both LGBT and in an LGBT relationship together, they're explicitly making ''Sister Claire'' a paradigm for diversity. This means that any character not explicitly shown to be LGBT is ''at minimum'' AmbiguouslyBi.
* ''Webcomic/TheNightBelongsToUs'': Hank, [[SupportingProtagonist the main character]]; Miss Chief, [[BigBad the main antagonist]]; and Antoine Anton are all gay. Ada, [[{{Deuteragonist}} the deuteragonist]], is at least bisexual, and Lendfire might be as well.
* ''[[http://www.thewretchedoneswebcomic.com The Wretched Ones]]'': The entire main cast is queer, with John as pansexual, Charlie as trans and bisexual, Yayne as bisexual, and Sparkes being genderqueer and asexual. The author has hinted there are even more queer characters to come.
* Four out of five of ''Webcomic/AgentsOfTheRealm'''s main cast are gay, bi, or similar, as well as several side characters.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* The core cast of ''Literature/TalesOfMU'' is predominantly gay or bisexual.
* Characters in ''Literature/TheSolsticeWar'' are either gay or bi or awaiting confirmation to be gay or bi.
* ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries''. PlayedForLaughs.
* ''Roleplay/{{AJCO}}'' contains the full spectrum - gay, bi, ace, pan ''and'' straight, as well as nonbinary, trans and agender characters. No one ever draws attention to it and the sexualities of the characters have little to no impact on the plot - they're simply just aspects of them rather than their main focus.
* The whole point of Poe Cottage at [[SuperheroSchool Whateley Academy]] in the Literature/WhateleyUniverse. The school administration has put into one safe zone every student who admitted on the entry form that he/she/it is either lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or intersex, because turning into a mutant and starting high school is hard enough. Most of them are closeted to anyone not in Poe, as the "official" cover story is that Poe is for the "emotionally disturbed" mutants, which has all kinds of UnfortunateImplications. Though given [[TraumaCongaLine the amount of crap most of those kids go through before they even enroll]] it's honestly kind of true.
* ''Literature/AressInWonderland''.
* All but one of the main characters in ''Ze Zombie'' are queer in some way.
* In ''Roleplay/TheSydneyScroungers'', there are a fairly small handful of characters who are both straight and cisgender. Given the writers (and the ''Film/PacificRim'' fandom in general) this isn't terribly surprising.
* The overwhelming majority of characters in ''WebVideo/WhereTheBearsAre'' are gay men.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YdKYwI4C4t4 This]] ''Funny Or Die'' skit parodies ''Series/TheBachelor'' and explains why a gay season of the show might not work so well. Since all the contestants are potentially attracted to each other, the only thing that sets bachelor Bryden (played by Jesse Tyler Ferguson) apart from the others is the fact that he doesn't live with them in the RealityTVShowMansion, so they spend far more time hooking up with ''each other'' than getting to know him.
* The D&D podcast/[[InsistentTerminology radio drama]] ''Podcast/DiceFunk'' has Rinaldo and Silas in season 1 as well as some facetious teasing of Jayne/Anne, but it's not until season 2 that the show really blooms into this trope, what with Vinnie, her gay kenku dads, the awkward relationship between Joan the Drow and her ex Lita, as well as the half-orc Jem. Effectively the only mention of heterosexuality comes from Alias' parents, one of which hardly shows up, and Violet blushing at Drop, which is never brought up again.
* The podcast ''Podcast/TheStrangeCaseOfStarshipIris'' has a main cast of which at least 4/5 are either not straight, not cisgender, or both.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/RickAndSteveTheHappiestGayCoupleInAllTheWorld'': The only straight recurring character is Condie, the world's biggest FagHag (and seemingly the universe's ButtMonkey).
* ''WesternAnimation/QueerDuck'': All of the characters are gay, except Bi Polar Bear... who is bisexual and is a parody of Creator/PaulLynde.
* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': Justfied in that quite a bit of the main cast (the gems) are genderless polymorphic sentient rocks that happen to project as women. WordOfGod has confirmed Pearl's attraction to Rose, Garnet is a fusion of the gems Ruby and Sapphire, two lovers that didn't want to live apart after experiencing fusion for the first time, and Peridot has had ShipTease with both Amethyst and Lapis. However, the secondary cast largely subverts this, as most of them either haven't had an onscreen romantic moment with anyone else or have only been explicitly shown to be attracted to members of the opposite gender.
