[[caption-width-right:254:''Manga/SailorMoon'''s greatest battle: MoralGuardians vs. FridgeLogic.]]

->''"This game is rated M for Mature, but dang. You can't be talking about lesbians here, bro. Just rape, murder, drugs, sex, kidnapping, and other shit. But don't be making canon lesbians until the last second. Okay, dude?"''
-->-- '''Mari''', ''[[https://youtu.be/RJAEVBf5Q_Q?t=760 GamingSins: Everything Wrong with]] VideoGame/LifeIsStrange [[https://youtu.be/RJAEVBf5Q_Q?t=760 (feat. Geek Remix)]]''

The main character and her boyfriend share their FirstKiss onscreen and, from then on, we are treated to a pile of onscreen mushy goodness ([[ShippingBedDeath if we're lucky]]). The main character's best friend and [[CleaningUpRomanticLooseEnds the boy that was after her]] get together amidst cheers and blushing. But wait, weren't they hinting at another couple? Oh, the SchoolgirlLesbians? Forget ever giving ''them'' a resolution -- at least onscreen. Heck, the plot won't even say that there is a relationship, so that technically, anyone arguing that there isn't one is not wrong. They may live together, they may never get with someone else, they may sleep in the same bed; but they ''will not'' say that they are a couple "that way". [[note]]A "residue" of that is the rather odd tendency of some mangas and animes to insistently call two girls "friends" even when they ''are'' explicitly and unambiguously a couple.[[/note]]

Canon homosexuality, except in [[YaoiGenre the genres that]] [[YuriGenre focus on it specifically]], is rare and sometimes restricted to subtext -- no outward shows of affection onscreen except for that which could be [[HeterosexualLifePartners interpreted as]] [[RomanticTwoGirlFriendship just friends]] if you squint hard enough. It's called "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_love_that_dare_not_speak_its_name the love that dare not speak its name]]" for a reason. This is also referred to as [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Queer_baiting queerbaiting]] when it's done for the purpose of catching as many fans as possible while still remaining firmly in technically straight territory.

Happens most often in series aimed at kids or teenagers -- and as the name shows, most often to female characters. One of the reasons for that is a DiscreditedTrope: the idea that lesbianism was a form of {{asexuality}}. It was believed that the average lesbian wasn't actually attracted to women but was instead irrationally afraid of men (and therefore sex in general, because [[ValuesDissonance if there isn't a penis involved it isn't sex]]), usually because she had been hurt by a "bad guy". She chose women only because she still required ''emotional'' fulfillment, which was thought to be [[AllWomenArePrudes the only thing women wanted out of sex]]. This trope (and its even more harmful companion, the idea that a lesbian [[CureYourGays could be turned straight]] by a "good guy", even if he has to rape her) has been largely forgotten, but echoes still reverberate in many areas.

Part of the reason that {{Yaoi Fan|girl}}s and {{Yuri Fan}}s alike have reputations for pairing up any two guys or gals who interact with each other; most canon couples are reduced to subtext as is, so why not elaborate?

Do not confuse with ButNotTooGay; that trope is for when there is a confirmed same-gender relationship in the work, but the physical contact between the partners is much more G-rated than the different-gender couples. This trope is for when there is a same-gender couple in the work that is never explicitly confirmed as a couple. MinionShipping is generally immune, as villains can do ([[ButNotTooEvil almost]]) whatever they want without being called out on it. In an attempt to avoid this trope, DiscountLesbians could be used through its LoopholeAbuse.

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* Pictured: Uranus and Neptune are lovers in ''Franchise/SailorMoon'', although never outright stated as such. Most adaptations (of the 90's anime, never ''Anime/SailorMoonCrystal'') take further steps to make them plausibly deniable, or just contradict the idea all together:
** The Cloverway English dub of the [[Anime/SailorMoon original anime]] reworked the two to be cousins, which probably could have worked, [[KissingCousins if they did not keep all the subtext]]. They did more or less imply that Uranus had a crush on Mamoru/Darien.
** In the French version, Uranus disguises herself as a boy to protect their identity, and Neptune only pretends to be "his" girlfriend to help, with the voice indicating that she WAS a man in her civilian form. In the love contest episode, it was implied that Uranus posed as a boy. Mercury told that sometimes she wonders whether Uranus was a boy; ridiculous reactions from the others followed (because in the original version, [[CovertPervert Mercury wondered whether the two girls were lovers]]).
** In the Italian and Polish dub, they were simply "close friends".
** What takes the cake was the Hungarian dub, which explained that Uranus WAS a man in civilian form. The Russian dub did this as well (though ''only'' in the fifth season: the third, dubbed by a different company, kept Haruka female with much of the subtext left intact).
** The second case was Usagi/Serena and Seiya. The anime changed Seiya from a crossdressing lesbian to an actual boy, in civilian form, to make their relationship opposite-gender. This was done to avoid controversy caused by Uranus and Neptune.
** And because Creator/NaokoTakeuchi apparently ''loves'' this trope, the [[Manga/SailorMoon manga]] (and only the manga) has Minako and Rei develop a truly intimate friendship and be in rather ambiguous scenes and pictures (some of which compare them to Haruka and Michiru). Bonus point for them being respectively Sailor ''Venus'' and Sailor ''Mars'', whose planets are named after two mythological lovers.
** This was also done to Zoisite and Kunzite in the original English dub as well. Specifically, Zoisite was re-written as a woman, and was also given a female voice actress.
* In ''Manga/TokyoMewMew'', Mint was actually allowed to give a love confession to her OneeSama Zakuro, but they were fighting at the time, and Zakuro never gives her answer onscreen. Compare to fellow minor teammate Lettuce, who was allowed to carry out a long and involved ShipTease LoveTriangle with ''two'' males, one of whom she actually kissed. The wording used by Mint in the anime is more ambiguous than the way Ichigo and Masaya confess their love to each other, which gives Mint's line a possibility to be taken in a more or less neutral "I pledge my loyalty" sense. Although the anime itself is greatly {{bowdlerise}}d in that aspect -- in the manga Mint's crush on Zakuro is increasingly more blatant and hardly allows for interpretations outside of the SchoolgirlLesbians concept. In a bizarre inversion, the English dub actually made it slightly ''more'' explicit in one scene. A scene in the Japanese version had the girls thinking of various guys they were attracted to, with Mint shown thinking of a male dancer she admired. In the English version, [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar she is instead shown thinking of Renee]] ([[DubNameChange Zakuro's English name]]).
* As ''Manga/MermaidMelodyPichiPichiPitch'' shows, MinionShipping isn't immune. Mimi and Sheshe's almost-kiss was cut from broadcast, while the main girls kiss their boyfriends all the time. If you take their group name literally, it could be Hide Your Incest too, but it's also quite plausible that they're not actually sisters and the name comes from either the OneeSama tradition or their shared origin -- either way, it's pretty badly hidden, all right.
* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' has a male example of this with {{Starter Villain}}s Zabuza and Haku. Although it is never truly explained what their relationship was, it was hinted that there was more than just mentor/student feelings between them, especially when you consider Haku's absolute devotion and Zabuza's parting words at the end.
* An odd example occurs in the manga ''Mugen Densetsu Takamagahara: Dream Saga''. In one world, Nachi is female in mind and body, while [[GenderBender in another]], she is {{transgender}}. Her romantic subplots with Takaomi and Souta, both of whom are male, are almost exclusively given attention in Takamagahara, i.e. when Nachi looks female; in Nakatsukuni, it's reduced to EvenTheGuysWantHim gags.
* Nanoha and Fate from the ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'' franchise likely have something more going on than just a [[RomanticTwoGirlFriendship romantically tinged friendship]]. At least, they share a bed and [[HasTwoMommies adopt a child together]]. ''If'' that is indeed the case, they keep very quiet about it, since they don't do more in public than exchange glances. Although it's not just Nanoha and Fate - aside from Chrono and Amy, who never actually appear together after the scene that reveals they got married, ''none'' of the relationships are confirmed to be more than friendship, regardless of the genders involved, so this could be attributed to NoHuggingNoKissing. By ''Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaVivid'' this has gotten strange. Yuuno is no longer in the picture, and, for the last 4 years, Vivio has considered Fate as her other mother. Nanoha and Fate still live with each other when Fate isn't on a mission that takes her to other worlds; they still refer to each other as "best friends", but are referred to collectively as "The Takamachi Family." (They own a minivan.) The writers are taking it to the molecule-length of the line. '''Before''' ''[=ViVid=]'', Yuuno was explicitly mentioned as an important part of said Takamachi Family (on an official LoveChart no less). Nanoha and Fate have [[WordOfGay been]] [[OfficialCouple confirmed]] to be in a relationship with each other in [[http://s240.photobucket.com/user/BPHaru3/media/RND/Fate_chan_is_a_prince_en.jpg.html this interview]] from the series creator and their [[Creator/NanaMizuki voice]] [[Creator/YukariTamura actresses]] but the two still don't do anything romantically explicit in the series.
* ''LightNovel/MariaSamaGaMiteru'' excels at setting up [[RomanticTwoGirlFriendship beautiful, romantic relationships]] [[SchoolgirlLesbians between female characters]] that [[BaitAndSwitchLesbians never quite]] [[RelationshipReveal make the leap into text]]. The original light novels is heavier on the implications but even then no confirmations of crushes are given, besides Sei being openly gay.
* Alicia and Akari from ''Manga/{{ARIA}}'' get ever closer and closer during the course of the series, culminating in the highly romantic ''Arietta'' {{OVA}}, only to have things blow up when [[spoiler:Alicia announces to get married--and not to Akari]]. This leads to exactly ''one'' short scene in which [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/alicia-akari-hug.png a seemingly heartbroken Akari gets comforted by Alicia]]--and that's that. Then again, she ''might'' [[spoiler:still be marrying ''another'' woman... like her former mentor, "Grandma" Akino, the only one seen constantly with Alicia in the end of the series]].
* The "lesbianism = asexuality" myth is discussed in the autobiographical lesbian manga ''Honey & Honey''. Masako tells a potential male suitor that she likes girls, and the guy responds by vowing to protect her and asking if a man hurt her when she was younger.
* The English dub of ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura'' managed to turn an EveryoneIsBi series into a NoHuggingNoKissing one, removing all same-gender attractions and relationships. At least they were equal opportunity; even Sakura and Syaoran's relationship was excised.
* ''Anime/{{Noir}}'', which ''did'' in fact contain an explicit lesbian attraction, which [[spoiler:[[BuryYourGays ended badly for one party]]]], but the relationship between the leads is just ambiguous enough at the end that it could go either way.
* Kurogane and Fai from ''Manga/TsubasaReservoirChronicle'' are ''probably'' an official couple. But the [[Creator/{{CLAMP}} Sadistic Lady Mangaka]] being who they are, and the fact that Tsubasa is a shonen manga, we never found out for sure.
* In ''Anime/MaiOtome'', about 90% of the eponymous otomes are strongly insinuated to be in lesbian relationships, but we never so much as see any handholding (except for one [[PsychoLesbian lesbian rape scene]]). In the sound dramas, Yukino tells Nao that while she is quite good at finding out information as president of Aries (including that Nao is leader of the Stripes gang), and has been friends with Natsuki and Shizuru for a long time, she still doesn't quite know the true nature of their relationship, although the scene in the spa seems to indicate that Natsuki and Shizuru are in a romantic relationship. Perhaps some hiding goes on in-universe.
* ''Manga/MakenKi'': The exact nature of Yuuka and Takaki's 'relationship' is never specified, despite [[HomoeroticSubtext subtle]] and [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar not-so-subtle]] implications that they may be 'more than friends'.
** While Takaki has been confirmed to be a lesbian, Yuuka's sexual orientation is left [[AmbiguouslyGay ambiguous.]] They're almost always together and Yuuka refers to Takaki [[FirstNameBasis by her first name]], "Furan," whenever they're alone - such as during the flashback in chapter 48, where she refes to Takaki as, [[http://www.mangatown.com/manga/maken_ki/c048/17.html "her important person".]]
** Near the beginning of chapter 28, they arrive together for the group's vacation as if they were a couple. And when the girls were discussing the kinds of guys they liked in chapter 37, Takaki plainly states [[DoesNotLikeMen her distaste]] for men. While Yuuka seconded Uruchi's[[note]]who's the only other confirmed lesbian[[/note]] opinion that true love isn't limited to only having relationships with men.
** The preface page of chapter 45 explicitly shows them engaged in foreplay, while spooning together in lingerie. Though the page caption says the scene [[CoitusEnsues has nothing to do with the actual story]] and is merely intended [[{{Fanservice}} for fanservice.]] Yet chapter 57 contains a scene just like it in one of the flashback panels at the beginning. Yuuka is shown healing Takaki [[IntimateHealing by spooning against her]], with one of her hands [[spoiler:between her legs]]. Takaki's back is arched, while blushing and [[LooksLikeSheIsEnjoyingIt biting down on her finger]], as light radiates [[StockVisualMetaphors from where Yuuka is touching her.]]
* Sandra and Greta from ''{{Manga/Dramacon}}'' are never said to be a couple, but they certainly act like it: holding hands, sharing a bed, dancing together, etc. Greta even calls Sandra "love" at one point.
* In ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'', [[BodyguardCrush Setsuna and Konoka]] are heavily implied to be lesbians, but it is never stated outright. In the WhereAreTheyNowEpilogue, [[spoiler:it's mentioned that Setsuna got married in 2017, though it doesn't mention to who. [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar Konoka also got married in 2017.]] And in the accompanying image Setsuna is carrying Konoka, [[BridalCarry bridal style.]] A very, VERY happy looking Konoka...]]
* In ''Manga/MagicalPokemonJourney'' a Squirtle has a crush on a male human, Almond. The English translators tried to censor it but the HoYay was still there. There's also Charmander who is implied to have a crush on Eevee, but it's never very explicit.
* In ''Anime/{{Canaan}}'', the title character and her "light" Maria are obviously in love, and Canaan's powers explicitly are tied with her love for Maria, but they never properly get together in the entire show. They refer to each other as friends, we get to see their thoughts for each other (but they never say them), and they go on dates but aren't allowed to kiss. They get like 2-4 hugs in the entire series, and hold hands twice, but are kept apart by what seems to be the power of this trope alone. They aren't even implied to finally get together in the end.
* In ''Anime/DotHackSign'', Tsukasa became the "Most Important Person" to Subaru; "despite being a girl." 10 years later, in the manga of ''.hack//Link'' she is living with her. This off-hand comment was dropped in the commercial translation of the manga.
* ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'':
** Played strangely with Madoka and Homura. Nothing in the show ever says or implies that they're straight and/or JustFriends, but on the other hand, it's never said that they're in love either, [[RomanticTwoGirlFriendship though it is very easy to interpret the story that way.]] Possibly no longer the case as of ''[[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagicaTheMovieRebellion Rebellion]]''; Homura says that "love" is her motivation for everything she did for Madoka, but, well, [[spoiler:[[LoveMakesYouEvil she may not have chosen the best way to express her feelings]]]]. Though it could also be platonic love, as it isn't explained much further than just being love.
** There's copious amounts of evidence that Kyoko likes Sayaka (the inverse is less clear), especially in their [[spoiler:TogetherInDeath]] scene. The manga has a clearly romantic scene between them [[spoiler:in the afterlife]]. But they never hug or kiss except in a vague ImagineSpot, and the word "love" is never used.
** The spinoffs treat their relationships better than the show, although they never have any kissing or anything like that. ''Manga/PuellaMagiKazumiMagica'' featured a magical girl who [[spoiler:wished to be like her dead friend, with the witch form of a giant heart]], and a scene where two characters leave for "dating" and seem to be alone when we next see them. The climax fights do feature a few declarations of outright love. [[Manga/PuellaMagiOrikoMagica Oriko and Kirika]] are very clearly in a relationship, perhaps one of the most clear in the franchise - for instance, a scene where Kirika rants at Mami for [[InsistentTerminology using "affection" instead of "love"]] to describe her relationship with Oriko. Nonetheless, no kissing (though hugging remains in place).
* ''LightNovel/FateZero'' has Waver and Rider who have been confirmed to have slept together sometime after episode 13. Too bad they don't show any affection/romance on screen.
* The anime of ''Literature/SoundEuphonium'' introduces truckloads of sexual tension between Kumiko and Reina, culminating in a scene in episode 8 so laden with {{subtext}} that it had {{yuri fan}}s all over {{squee}} in delight. And it just escalates from there in the following episodes. In the novels it gets just as heated, but while Reina's plot point (where she has a crush on a teacher) [[AbortedArc gets dropped like a hot potato and eventually forgotten]] in the books that follow, Kumiko [[spoiler:starts dating Shuichi, her {{Childhood Friend|s}}]]. Despite this, the books go even further with the subtext; but apparently an oddly detailed description of touching each other's underwear is not intended to imply any romantic attraction. In the anime Kumiko ends up with [[spoiler: no one]], however she does declare a (probably) PlatonicDeclarationOfLove to [[spoiler:Asuka]]. Shuichi's scenes were mostly either cut or made more platonic, which only made her tension with Reina more noticeable.
* [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]] in ''Anime/YuriKumaArashi'', which features a whole human civilization that consists of, seemingly, almost entirely lesbians. However, none of them are actually allowed to confirm their relationships as more than friends, and have to hide any more explicit sexual relationships or they will be ostracized. [[WorldOfSymbolism This is all metaphor for the anime industry's use of this very trope.]]
* ''Anime/SenkiZesshouSymphogear'' pushes this trope [[UpToEleven to its limits]], with girls taking each other on "dates," holding hands, and even saying they love each other. Hibiki and Miku sleep/cuddle in the same bed, say romantic things about each other, and act like a committed couple in many other ways. Despite all this, no girl ever kisses another girl or describes one as her girlfriend, giving the impression that the relationships have been ''technically'' censored away but not removed in any practical sense. Miku at the very least ''has'' been confirmed to have romantic feelings for Hibiki...in her ImageSong, while Hibiki is portrayed as being ObliviousToLove.
* ''Manga/TanakaKunWaItsumoKedaruge'' is an odd case. All the ([[ChastityCouple admittedly few]]) scenes between Miyano and Echizen are kept, including Miyano's outright LoveConfession, but the anime notably switches around the order of some scenes from the manga, having a scene where Echizen is flustered mistakenly thinking that Ohta and Tanaka both want her to marry them come after said confession and adding some scenes not in the manga that imply Echizen having a crush on Ohta.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* [[Franchise/{{Batman}} Harley and Ivy]], from the comic of same name. Harley especially is very enthusiastically cuddly, and Ivy seems to be her fallback from the (more) abusive relationship Harley had with the Joker. When Batgirl discreetly asks if they're... you know, Harley responds "What, like what people say about you and Supergirl?". The matter is quickly dropped. In one scene it did look like Ivy was going to kiss Harley, only to be interrupted by angry AmbiguouslyGay characters. Made (sorta) canon in the final ''ComicBook/GothamCitySirens'' storyline. Harley taunts Ivy by telling her that she's always known that she only hates the Joker because she's secretly in love with Harley herself, and the following issue has Ivy admitting that she does indeed have feelings for her. [[WordOfGay Confirmed by the writer]], but within the comics and show you'll never see anything concrete between them. Completely averted in New 52, where the two are frequently shown to have a sexual relationship, though like pre-52, nothing is outright stated.
** Finally outright subverted in issue 41 of ''[[ComicBook/DCComicsBombshells DC Comics Bombshells]]'', where Harley and Ivy share a completely non-censored BigDamnKiss (needless to say, fans of the pairing reacted ''very'' positively to that issue). In a later issue it's shown that they're outright sleeping together. Why is this "subverted" in this case as opposed to merely "averted", you might ask? Because while it's ''ostensibly'' less surprising in a series known for it's CastFullOfGay, it's worth pointing out that the series still takes place in an alternate-universe World War II era, where homophobia and sexism are indicated to still stubbornly exist, making it ''more'' than just an aversion like the modern-day-set New 52 continuity; in fact, the Cast Full Of Gay itself makes it a repeatedly DefiedTrope, and deliberately so on the part of the creative team, who have stated they are purposefully trying to "make up" for the lack of ''real'' Golden Age comics heroines of minority status, including those on the LGBTQ spectrum. To that end, not only are the lesbians ''not'' hidden, but there's ''multiple'' such canon pairings; Harley and Ivy weren't even the first to get an on-panel kiss.
* Danielle Moonstar and Rahne Sinclair of the original ''ComicBook/NewMutants'' (198x to present). These two were in each other's heads, by empathic link, every time Rahne used her powers. Both of them had crushes on male characters, but nothing that approached the depth of their relationship with each other until decades later in other series.
* Mystique and Destiny in the ''ComicBook/XMen'' comics. WordOfGod said theirs was a romantic relationship, but there was no definitive confirmation in the comics until after Destiny had died, and the confirmation was very subtle (a character refers to Destiny as Mystique's "leman" -- an archaic term for "lover").
* This is the whole reason why so many people like to deny the WordOfGay about Rotor in the ''[[ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog Archie Sonic the Hedgehog]]'' comics; according to the writer, the relationship between Rotor and Cobar (his significant other in the story that featured it) was made subtle for a reason (alternately to avoid any fan backlash and to get people used to the idea of a gay Sonic character), but proved to be ''too'' subtle for most readers to catch on. The fact that it was introduced in a TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture storyline that has since been discredited doesn't help matters, any.
* The first run of ''Franchise/AlienVsPredator'' comics had Jame Roth and her wife Cathie. In the novel ''Alien vs. Predator: Prey'', Jame is one of the eye level characters: the story is frequently from her point of view to the point where she could be called an outright main character. The fact that she's married to a woman is stated outright but never brought up as an issue and the pair are often overtly affectionate (and are among the few characters to survive to the end). In the comic version, both of them are shunted off into being side characters and most of their affectionate moments are cut out, to the point where you could be forgiven for thinking they're simply good friends.
* For much of the 80s, Franchise/{{Superman}}'s friend Maggie Sawyer was was just a [[ButchLesbian somewhat butch]] policewoman, who had a very good friend called Toby Raines, and who had got divorced and didn't intend to remarry because of reasons. The writers stopped dancing around the issue eventually, and for a while Maggie was even [[ComicBook/{{Batwoman}} Kate Kane]]'s "[[Comicbook/LoisLane Lois]]".
* During an infamous period in Creator/MarvelComics, then-EIC Creator/JimShooter mandated that ''no'' same-gender couples could be depicted in books. As the story goes, after there were protests against the overtly homophobic nature of a notorious scene Shooter penned in a ''[[ComicBook/TheIncredibleHulk Rampaging Hulk]]'' issue, in which Bruce Banner narrowly escaped being raped by two stereotypical DepravedHomosexual men in a YMCA shower, he decided that ''any'' depiction of gay people would be controversial. So he banned it, which included keeping a lid on ComicBook/{{Storm}} and Yukio (who were intended to be a couple) and the above mentioned Destiny and Mystique, and meant that Northstar couldn't come out and plans to make ComicBook/{{Wolverine}} bisexual were scrapped, as well as any other plans Claremont had.
* ''[[http://www.misterkitty.org/extras/stupidcovers/stupidcomics53.html Strange Girl]]'' is a story from an old [[TheSeventies 70's]] DC romance comic which advertises itself as "The Story They Dared Us To Print!" and follows the life of a tomboyish girl named "Liz". Liz plays on the school [[LesbianJock basketball team]], enjoys helping her dad do yard work and DIY, and has never dated a boy. Liz is first shown arguing with her mother over her masculine clothing and refusal to get a boyfriend. Then she has a sleepover (and is strongly implied to share a bed) with her good friend Agnes, who also does not date boys and has much more "understanding" parents, and who Liz describes as "not so shy once you get to know her" while smiling knowingly. Finally, at a basketball game she is relentlessly teased from the stands for her boyfriend-less lifestyle. She meets a boy at the game and, in the manner of romance comics, [[StrangledByTheRedString falls in love with him out of nowhere]], much to his surprise, since there is apparently a rumor at school that she is (in her words) "some sort of...". The implications of lesbianism are practically solid, particularly given that (as a dodge around MoralGuardians) it was a long tradition in lesbian erotica or works with lesbian themes for the main character to [[CureYourGays "get better"]] and jump into a relationship with a man at the last second.
* Despite the concept that Franchise/WonderWoman comes from an island with more than a few lesbians being a popular one, in canon very few Amazons show anything besides LesYay.
* Greg Rucka, the man responsible for re-imagining Franchise/WonderWoman for the 21st century and re-inventing the character, has said publicly that he imagines [[https://inews.co.uk/essentials/culture/books/wonder-woman-creator-confirms-comic-book-character-bisexual/ she would have had same-sex relationships]] as her upbringing in a matriachy with no men would practically demand this. But this aspect of her character would be seriously down-played for the reboot. In the ''Comicbook/DCRebirth'' series, #12 has Steve ask if Diana had "someone special" on Paradise Island and is told "Her name is Kasia". (Incidentally, this is the same issue where Barbara Ann Minerva is very interested to learn that Etta Candy is familiar with the works of Sappho...)
* Believe it or not, there is at least one ComicBook/ChickTract (!) that seems to channel this in a way that all but must have been deliberate. In [[http://www.chick.com/reading/tracts/0079/0079_01.asp "The Letter"]], the main character is an upper-class liberal woman who considers herself a Christian, but is very upset when a street preacher questions her commitment. We later see that she is unmarried, and has another woman's photo on her nightstand, with a handwritten dedication from her "best friend" Frances. The bulk of the story then consists of a dream, in which she receives a [[OminousMessageFromTheFuture letter from the future]] by Frances. The letter reminisces about their very close friendship, when they "walked together by day and night": "I called you my friend in life, and I trusted you in joy and strife," and so it goes. While nothing is spelled out, the subtext appears rather obvious. And then comes TheReveal: because her Christian friend did not warn her of what are the wages of sin, Frances of the dream is now ''in hell'', ending the letter on an anguished note. The protagonist, once awake, takes the warning seriously, and eventually decides to try to "save" her friend by converting her, "even if it costs our friendship." [[spoiler: [[YouAreTooLate But not]] [[DownerEnding quickly enough]]]].

[[folder:Film - Animation]]
* One of the superhero bios in ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'' mentions a male superhero living together and [[HasTwoMommies raising kids together]] with his roommate. They're never explicitly referred to as a couple. It could have an in-series explanation as the film takes place in the 70s, though the out-of-universe reason is likely this.
* ''Anime/WhenMarnieWasThere'' introduces ''so'' much sensual tension between the two main characters that it led many viewers to believe that Creator/StudioGhibli had finally dared to tackle a story about [[RomanticTwoGirlFriendship the romantic attraction]] [[PuppyLove between two girls]]--fueled also by [[NeverTrustATrailer the overtly romantic imagery in the promotional material for the movie]]. Alas, any hope for a romantic resolution gets shattered when it is revealed that [[spoiler: Marnie is actually Anna's ''grandmother'']].

[[folder:Film - Live Action]]
* The film ''Film/BendItLikeBeckham''. The heterosexual romance seems very tacked-on compared to the chemistry between the leads; it was originally written as a lesbian story (look at the title!), but was changed based on the assumption that (1) it would narrow the appeal, and (2) it would perpetuate the stereotype that [[LesbianJock sporty girls are all lesbians]]. To make up for it, the writers added a subplot about the heroine's male best friend coming out as gay.
** The film also pokes fun at the hypocrisy behind GayPanic in modern culture, with the parents' reaction to what they believe is a lesbian relationship between the two leads. Initially the mother is distraught, in tears, and yelling at her daughter...until she finds out the relationship is platonic and cheerfully switches to claiming there's nothing wrong with lesbians.
* In the movie adaptation of ''Film/FriedGreenTomatoes'', the lesbian relationship between the two main characters (the ladies in the story, not Kathy Bates and Jessica Tandy) was toned down to being only heavily implied rather so the film could be marketed to a more mainstream audience, a decision which led to lively criticism upon its release.
* In the novel ''Thirteen Women'', Hazel is a lesbian who falls in love with a woman named Martha. The 1932 film adaptation instead has Hazel married to a man, with Martha AdaptedOut entirely. The movie ''was'' originally going to feature Martha, complete with the implication that she and Hazel were having an extramarital affair, but the strict censorship imposed by the Hays Code resulted in all of Martha's scenes being cut.
* The original movie adaptation of ''Theatre/TheChildrensHour'', ''These Three'', wrote out the lesbian plot and replaced it with a heterosexual one. It changed the concept that Karen and Martha are having an affair to the notion that Martha is cheating with Karen's fiance. A large amount of dialogue was swapped [[AdaptationalContextChange around]] due to the change. The second adaptation keeps the original plot intact but no one ever actually says any LGBT related terms.
* When the Italian Horror AnthologyFilm ''I Tre volti della paura'' was dubbed into English as ''Film/BlackSabbath''[[note]]Yes, that is where Music/BlackSabbath the band got their name[[/note]], the segment "The Telephone" got this treatment: in the original version it was a plot point that Rosy and Mary were lovers, whereas in the English-dubbed version, they were apparently just close friends. To save it from any {{Dub Induced Plot Hole}}s (and possibly also to make it fit in more with the other segments), the ending was also significantly changed to involve the supernatural.
* In ''Film/SavingMrBanks'', absolutely no mention is made of the fact that, during the time of the film's events, P.L. Travers was engaging in an openly lesbian relationship with her live-in girlfriend, and the girlfriend in question is never once seen.
* [[http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2016/07/12/ghostbusters-director-paul-feig-on-the-film-s-misogynistic-trolls-it-s-not-for-all-these-guys.html In an interview with The Daily Beast]], Paul Feig heavily implied that Holtzmann from ''Film/{{Ghostbusters|2016}}'' is a lesbian, but that he wasn't allowed to make it explicit because of ExecutiveMeddling from Sony.
* In ''Film/WonderWoman'' it is hinted at that there is at least one lesbian couple among the Aamazons, but we never get to see a lesbian couple kiss.
* In ''Film/ThorRagnarok'', Valkyrie is subtly hinted to be bisexual, with actress Creator/TessaThompson saying that the female warrior who [[TakingTheBullet died to save Valkyrie]] in a {{Flashback}} [[WordOfGay was her lover]]. There was going to be a scene confirming Valkyrie's sexuality by showing a woman leaving her bedroom (implying they'd had sex), but it ended up being cut from the finished movie.
* The ''Film/FantasticBeastsAndWhereToFindThem'' sequel got a lot of flack when its director and J.K. Rowling said that Dumbledore would not be explicitly gay in it even though the film also features Grindelwald who he was in love with.
* In the book ''Literature/ReadyPlayerOne'', it's an important plot point that [[spoiler:Aech's player, Helen,]] is a lesbian. The ''Film/ReadyPlayerOne2018'' movie largely glosses over this—the conversation in which it comes out in the book never happens in the movie. [[spoiler:However, during the exploration of ''The Shining'', Aech ''is'' shown to be quite willing to go along with being vamped by a naked woman, until she turns out to be a zombie.]]


* In ''Discworld/MonstrousRegiment'' it's implied that [[spoiler:Lofty and Tonker]] are romantically linked, and someone who's seen through the SweetPollyOliver disguise of one and not the other calls them a couple, but after they're both established as female it's talked around quite a bit.
* ''Literature/TheWheelOfTime'' has what are euphemistically known as "pillow friends", lesbian relationships that usually arise out of SituationalSexuality, like with the isolated trainees of the White Tower. For most of the Tower's instances, the relationship dissolves about the time they become full Aes Sedai. Moiraine and Siuan, for instance, had such a relationship in the prequel, only to distance themselves and in later books become involved with men. The issue of "pillow friends" is complicated by how the same term can denote either the aforementioned relationships, or just mean "close friends". Though fortunately there are non-ambiguous examples, in particular Elaida, Galina, and Thereva are clearly into women, and two of the Forsaken are bisexual.
* The Mord-sith in ''Literature/SwordOfTruth'' have significant numbers of lesbian relationships, but the only one between two named characters had one of them die in the next book after she was introduced. The surviving member of that pair is implied to have started up a new relationship with another named Mord-Sith in the last book.
* While romance is a large focus for almost all of the characters in ''Literature/ThePrincessDiaries'' by Meg Cabot, a romance between two girls is only hinted at and could be easily ignored. That is, until ''Volume X: Forever Princess'', when it's stated outright that the girls' dates are only to hide the truth from their parents.
* In Creator/StephenKing's ''Literature/UnderTheDome'', the relationship between Dodie Sanders and Sammy Bushey is referred to in conversation and in Dodie's thoughts as "you-know" and as "kid stuff" that they should have grown out of by now. Sammy has been married and has a baby, but it's also implied that many people in town know she has inclinations towards the other team; Dodie mentally equates her lesbian experiences with other immature and possibly immoral things she has a weakness for, such as smoking weed. The whole relationship is quickly obscured when Dodie is killed very early on. [[spoiler:Sammy later kills herself, which could make this a case of BuryYourGays if almost ''everyone'' in the town [[RocksFallEveryoneDies didn't also eventually die]].]]
* In the ''Literature/CircleOfMagic'' series, the relationship between Rosethorn and Lark is apparently present the entire time, though completely invisible apart from a hint in the fourth book unless you know what you're looking for. (They even sleep in separate rooms.) However, in ''The Will of the Empress'', it is stated as fact, after [[spoiler: Daja realises that she is in fact a lesbian herself]].
* By the [[Creator/TamoraPierce same author]], Lalasa from ''[[Literature/TortallUniverse Protector Of The Small]]'', Kel's maidservant, is a lesbian. Aside from some subtext with one of her friends, it's never mentioned in the series proper, due to Lalasa being a small enough character that there wasn't space for it without invoking HaveIMentionedIAmGay.
** Thom and Duke Roger from the same universe's "Song of the Lioness" were intended to be a couple (something had to compel Thom to bring Roger BackFromTheDead, after all), but the publisher wouldn't allow it. Fan reaction was split when Tamora Pierce revealed this, as some were uncomfortable with the only gay characters in the series being villains.
* Played straight in [[OlderThanFeudalism Ovid's]] ''Literature/TheMetamorphoses'' with [[WholesomeCrossdresser Ifis]] and Ianthe: despite loving each other deeply, Ifis has to be turned into a boy via DeusExMachina in order to happily marry her.
* Played with in a ''Literature/JudgeKnott'' book. One lesbian couple in the [[DeepSouth small southern town]] the series takes place in remain very deeply closeted and it's a significant plot point in the book.
* The Creator/AgathaChristie novel ''Literature/AMurderIsAnnounced'', features two unmarried, middle-aged women, Miss Hinchliffe and Miss Murgatroyd who live together. Miss Hinchliffe looks and acts like a man and dislikes men, and [[spoiler:she's devastated when Murgatroyd is killed.]] The exact nature of their relationship, however, is not specified, and it's possible that the subtext isn't even intentional. Since there were certainly RealLife arrangements like this in a GenteelInterbellumSetting, it's even possible Christie based them on a genuine couple without realising that was the relationship. (The television series ''Marple'' ditched any ambiguity and made the characters an full-on lesbian couple for its adaptation, and also [[AdaptationalAttractiveness young and good-looking]].)
* Renly Baratheon and Loras Tyrell in ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' have a relationship that is only [[http://www.angelfire.com/ma4/mlarchives/faq/lorasrenly.html hinted at in the books.]] WordOfGay says they had a sexual relationship. In the [[Series/GameOfThrones TV adaptation]] they don't try to hide it at all. [[spoiler:And then [[BuryYourGays Renly dies]] and Loras gets stuck on the backburner until he also dies after being shamed and tortured. Representation!]]
* (Jill) Banford and (Ellen) March in D.H. Lawrence's novella "The Fox", though any Literature teacher would tell you otherwise.
* Two of the {{Mauve Shirt}}s in the ''Literature/CiaphasCain'' novel ''Caves of Ice'', Sgt. Grifen and Cpl. Magot, were heavily implied to be involved, [[spoiler:to the extent of keeping each other centered while wandering through a ''Necron tomb'']], but don't get any real confirmation. Compare this to opposite-gender MauveShirt couple from ''For The Emperor'', who are much more touchy-feely [[spoiler:although AliensMadeThemDoIt, literally]]. The effect is downplayed, though, since the UnreliableNarrator is very careful [[IllPretendIDidntHearThat not to "notice" their relationship]] -- their being women is totally fine in his books, but a being of different ranks (and in one another's chain of command) is a serious breach of Guard protocol.
* The bisexuality of several characters is hinted at early in ''Literature/TheVampireChronicles'' books, but isn't outright stated until ''The Tale of the Body Thief.'' It's been theorized it was softened in the earlier books by editorial mandate, and by the fourth book Anne Rice had enough clout to spell it out explicitly.
* ''Literature/TheCountOfMonteCristo'' has this with Eugenie Danglers and her "best friend" Louise d'Armilly.
** It begins subtly, by comparing her beauty to that of Diana—who was virginal, preferring female company to male company. Diana also had at least one follower, Callisto, who was apparently in love with her, since Jupiter seduced her in Diana's form.
** She is incredibly quick to admire the beauty of other women, while attesting no opinion of the good-looks of any male characters.
** Then the narrator describes the glances of Eugenie's admirer as being deflected off "Minerva's shield," which "once protected Sappho." Sappho, of Lesbos.
** They are found sitting on the same chair in front of the piano, making duets out of solos by each playing one hand of the song.
** When they're planning to run away together after Eugenie's engagement ends in disaster, they are extremely affectionate and flirty, calling each other "my sweet" and comparing themselves to classical lovers such as Hercules and Queen Omphale (who liked to switch clothes with Hercules for fun).
** Finally, in case you still had your head in the sand: In one scene, an unexpected visitor drops into a hotel room they're staying in (two paragraphs after the text makes a point of telling the reader that the room has two beds) and finds them sleeping together in the same bed. Yeah...
* In ''Literature/{{MARZENA}}'', Lauren's dream suggest that Livia and Marian could be this, although it's not clear whether this is the case or not. It could also just be Lauren's own repressed inner feelings as being Alexythemic she's unable to know that she doesn't know what her emotions are. Because of [[UnreliableNarrator Unreliable Narration]], it could also so be that the allusions are really a reflection of the [[AuthorAvatar narrator's]] fantasies rather than the characters themselves.
* ''Literature/WarriorCats'':
** Two different writers have stated that Talltail and Jake were in love, however the publishers insist that they're only close friends.
** Similarly, Barley and Ravenpaw are an OfficialCouple according to Vicky, however they're not able to say this in-series.

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* In ''Series/BabylonFive'', there were definite, though [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar plausibly deniable]], indications that Susan Ivanova and Talia Winters were bisexual and involved with each other. The clearest one was a scene in "Divided Loyalties", where Talia, staying in Ivanova's quarters, reaches across the bed and is surprised to find the other side empty. The WordOfGod on the subject is that this relationship would have been more thoroughly developed if there had been more time before Andrea Thompson left the series. Ivanova more or less confirms this herself in "Ceremonies of Light and Dark".
-->'''Ivanova''' ''(confessing as part of Delenn's Rebirth Ceremony)'': I think I -- loved -- Talia.
* ''Series/BattlestarGalactica2003'':
** Admiral Cain and Gina at one point share a quick kiss. Compare this to practically any heterosexual relationship in the series, which at times seems determined to blur the line between space opera and soft porn.
** Cries of this also went up when Gaeta and Hoshi shared a kiss... in a series of webisodes that never aired on TV. After that, their sexuality and their relationship are never mentioned again, even after [[spoiler:Gaeta flips out, stages a mutiny, and is executed when it fails]]. In fairness, the webisodes were made ''after'' those [[spoiler:mutiny]] episodes despite being set and aired before them, and it was originally going to be Narcho (also a man), not Hoshi, that was Gaeta's lover. Actor availability struck again.
* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'':
** Faith is heavily implied to be in love with Buffy, but the only definite thing is said by a villain (impersonating ''another'' villain). The original script for "Enemies" had Faith kiss Buffy on the lips, but the network changed it to a more ambiguous forehead-kiss.
** Tara and Willow were on the line between this and ButNotTooGay or RomanticTwoGirlFriendship originally, with a lot of their relationship confined to innuendo and implications. The first character to recognize their relationship was Faith, who blithely said to Tara "Willow's not [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything driving stick]] anymore" and cruelly mentioned Willow's former heterosexual relationship with Oz. They only had their first kiss after one and a half seasons (while Buffy and Angel/Riley have plenty of loud make-outs and simulated sex on screen) in a scene that had to comply with a ridiculous amount of restrictions. When the show switched networks the couple became a lot more touchy-feely.
* ''Franchise/StarTrek'':
** All series are infamous for this, despite Creator/GeneRoddenberry himself [[WordOfGod asserting]] that humanity would have advanced beyond anti-gay prejudice in his idealized future, and claimed he would introduce a gay character on ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration''. His statements were disregarded by later producers to an almost militant degree. Complaints from fans were usually met with half-hearted appeasement in the form of {{Very Special Episode}}s that relied on BizarreAlienBiology as a metaphor for homosexuality, bisexuality, or transgenderism. No human characters are ever depicted as anything other than heterosexual, although they will frequently engage in InterspeciesRomance so long as their partner at least identifies as being of the opposite sex.
** This would eventually be pushed into the limelight just a bit more in ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'', though the two characters in love were the genderless Trill that just ''happened'' to be reunited when both were in female bodies. They share an on-screen kiss, which ended up causing the producers' fears to be realized due to the ensuing homophobic backlash the network faced.
** Finally averted in ''Series/StarTrekDiscovery'', in which major character Lt. Paul Stamets is unambiguously a gay man with a steady male partner.
* ''Series/StargateAtlantis'' writer Joe Mallozzi has announced that Alicia Vega, a minor recurring character in season five, was gay. However, in true hiding fashion, the scene meant to imply this fact (her asking Dr. Jennifer Keller on a date) was cut from her introductory episode, along with all her other scenes meant to set her up as a character of importance. So, not only did they remove the oblique reference to her sexuality, but all the other scenes she was in, and then [[BuryYourGays killed her off in her next appearance]] to make sure they never managed to squeeze it in later. He also stated that he thinks of one of the male recurring characters as gay, but he will not say who. Still, we don't want whoever that is ending up dead too.
* ''Series/XenaWarriorPrincess'' features one of the best known and longest running examples of this trope in the implied relationship between Xena and Gabrielle. Though the subtext becomes more and more explicit throughout the series, particularly during the final season, they're never officially confirmed to be anything more than HeterosexualLifePartners, and both characters are seen engaged in serious relationships (in one case, even a short-lived marriage) with male characters at various points throughout the series.
** One episode set in the modern day, with the Xena tv show existing had Xena reincarnated in one of Joxer's identical descendants, marrying Xena reincarnated in one of Gabrielle's identical descendants. Their friend was Joxer reincarnated in one of Xena's identical descendants. Then a later episode showed Ares appearing to switch them back into the bodies that look like they used to look, with the result being that Gabrielle and Xena were alive in the modern era and were about to get married as wife and wife. And they were cloned, with heavy implications that their modern day clones were a couple. And they met up as a completely separate reincarnation in the 1940's which ended up with the pretty explicit implication that Xena, reincarnated in her identical ancestor, and Gabrielle, reincarnated in her identical ancestor, would become life partners, though at the time same sex marriage was illegal.
** In ''You Are There'', a camera crew spends the entire time harassing Xena and Gabrielle about whether or not they're sleeping together. The trope is practically lamp-shaded in the final scene, when they force Xena to sit down and actually answer the question and then their camera's battery dies just as she starts to spit it out...
* ''Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'' is notorious for the relationship between HelloAttorney Alex Cabot and ActionGirl Olivia Benson. While they both ''acted'' as if they were in love with each other ("Loss" being a particularly obvious example), there was never any confirmation that they were together. The producers figured this out and decided to roll with it, and have been including ShipTease scenes on purpose since about Season Three. Even Stephanie March has said that it is as likely that they have been quietly in love all these years as not. Olivia has only been shown to have relationships with men thus far.
* On ''Series/TheWestWing'', none of the main characters is gay, but it's hinted in a sixth season episode that Margaret, Leo's assistant, might be into ladies. In the episode a string of men find laughable excuses to stop by an office to stare at a beauty pageant winner, and so does Margaret.
* Betty and Kate in ''Series/BombGirls'' until the final episode of Season 1. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] in that being an out lesbian in the 1940's was not exactly safe, and the creators wanted to take the relationship slowly.
* ''Series/DoctorWho'':
** Madame Vastra and Jenny Flint went through various stages of this. [[http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p011gpsb/profiles/jenny-flint The BBC's official profile of Jenny]] originally said she and Vasta are "good friends" and "A Good Man Goes To War" relegated their relationship to subtext. [[Recap/DoctorWho2012CSTheSnowmen "The Snowmen"]] has Vastra state that they're married but they rarely showed any affection, never mentioned their relationship afterwards, and while ''the Doctor'' kissed Jenny, Vastra certainly didn't. Their interactions in "The Name Of The Doctor" are somewhat romantic, but they still come off like a case of ButNotTooGay. "Deep Breath" averted this almost entirely, with them repeatedly mentioning that they're married, openly flirting with each other (and Jenny admonishing Vastra for flirting with Clara), and Jenny outright stating she loves Vastra. They still haven't gotten that kiss though (the one in the episode was an [[KissOfLife "oxygen transfer,"]] though it was still filmed much like a regular kiss).
*** For the sex-genre-savvy, their relationship also seems to have a Dom/sub element. The claim that Jenny has to pose as Vastra's maid in order to live with her is obvious nonsense, since Victorian England was more tolerant than ours of women living as "dear friends."
** While subtext between the Doctor and the Master has always existed, the new series did all it could to imply that they were or are still in love, with show-runner at the time Creator/RussellTDavies saying that they're "practically soul mates" in an interview. True to the trope, nothing definite is ever stated in the show. When they finally ''do'' have an onscreen kiss, [[spoiler:[[GenderBender the Master has become the Mistress]].]]
* InUniverse example in ''Series/AmericanHorrorStoryAsylum''. When Lana finally escapes [[BedlamHouse Briarcliff]], she writes a book detailing all the things she's been through. When on the subject of her roommate Wendy, she omits to mention that she was also her lover because it would apparently "distract" her readers from the message of the book.
* ''Postcards from Buster'', a PBS show and spinoff of ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'' where Buster went around talking to kids about their families, interviewed some children who lived together with two mothers. The episode was never shown on TV.
* Myka and H.G. Wells from ''Series/{{Warehouse 13}}''. Helena's only claim to canon bisexuality is the half-joke, fully deniable [[AmbiguouslyBi "Many of my lovers were men"]]. Myka doesn't even get that much. All her outright-stated relationships and crushes have been on men. Nevertheless, they are quite obviously desperately in love, although circumstances prevent them from getting together. Come on, H.G. abandoned her plan to destroy the world because she couldn't bear to hurt Myka, and Myka is clearly hurt in the episode where she finds out H.G. is in a long-term relationship and wants nothing to do with the Warehouse. At the end of the series it is stated that H.G has gotten into an off-screen relationship with a woman and Myka gets together with Pete.
* Santana and Brittany on ''Series/{{Glee}}'' both slept with all the boys... and each other. They were very ''close'' and made tons of comments that hinted that they were more than friends. Viewers finally had enough and demanded the subtext either be dropped or for it to become canon and in Season Two, Santana began her bittersweet journey of coming out as a lesbian. In Season Three, she and Brittany officially became a couple.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a5od0hNYlwk This scene]] from ''Series/OnceUponATime'' is said to be the one in which Mulan is revealed to be either lesbian or bisexual. However, its ambiguity leaves Mulan's sexual orientation up to the viewer's interpretation. She never explicitly says whether she is in love with Aurora or her husband Phillip. Although she was previously a series regular, after this scene, she has less than two more minutes of screen time. After this, she leaves to become the first woman ever in Robin Hood's band of merry men. However, although Robin's band of merry men returns to Storybrook, Mulan is not among them. Though in a later season she returns and teams up with Dorothy and Ruby who both end up being the show's first official female couple and the show was a little bit more forward about Mulan being in love with Aurora.
* ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'':
** Agent Victoria Hand is a lesbian in the comics, but here she is killed by Agent Ward before there is any in-universe confirmation that she is a lesbian.
** The writers considered revealing that Isabelle Hartley from Season 2 was Victoria's former lover, but cut any mention of this from the script since they thought [[DeadStarWalking Hartley's death]] would cause people to accuse the show of exploiting the BuryYourGays trope.
* ITV's adaptation of ''Endless Night'' by Agatha Christie does everything it can to imply Robbie is in love with Michael: he talks about feeling that they are "more than friends"; Ellie mentions "the way he looks at [Michael]"; he comes to Michael's house one last time to deliver an important message, implied to be a DyingDeclarationOfLove. This makes it all the more noticeable that nobody actually ''says'' that he is in love with Michael, even during the emotionally charged [[TheReveal reveal]].
* In-universe example on ''Series/Unreal2015'', set behind the scenes of an {{Expy}} of ''Series/TheBachelor'' called ''Everlasting'': in "Truth" Faith, a Christian smalltown girl and one of the more popular contestants, reveals to the crew that she's a lesbian in love with a friend of hers (and vice versa). While she resolves her questions and wants to come out on the show, her friend is much less willing (as she tells main character Rachel, "Does Matthew Shepard ring a bell?"). Rachel does succeed in keeping it quiet.

* The Music/KidzBop cover of "Born This Way" by the (openly bisexual) Music/LadyGaga left out the lyrics acknowledging LGBT people, in the process destroying the point of the song.
* Referenced in "Radio Friendly Pop Song" by Matt Fishel, which is about how gay musicians have to pretend to be straight in order to become popular in the mainstream music scene.

* Elphaba and Glinda in TheMusical version of ''Theatre/{{Wicked}}''. The [[Literature/{{Wicked}} original book by Maguire]] shows the two of them sharing a [[LastKiss bittersweet goodbye kiss]] and oodles of sexual tension. The musical has... a hug. Though some of the actresses have improvised and added a kiss, especially in foreign productions. There is WordOfGay in both the musical and book continuities, however it's hidden under thick subtext in the musical.
* ''Theatre/{{Pygmalion}}''[=/=]''Theatre/MyFairLady'': Higgins and Pickering. Nothing is remotely explicit, and in the musical Higgins has a {{Maybe Ever After}} with Eliza, but the {{Ho Yay}} is very much there.
* Brandon and Philip in ''Theatre/{{Rope}}''.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''VideoGame/HarvestMoon'':
** In ''VideoGame/HarvestMoonDS Cute'' instead of marrying a male character you can do the dating events with the Special Girls to increase your "best friend meter" with them. When it gets high enough the proposal item becomes available, at which point you can have a "best friend ceremony" with them. After this it's no longer possible to have a relationship or marry a male character, and you can even adopt a child together, but you are still only "best friends". The American version has the Blue Feather event disabled, so you can do everything ''up to'' the ceremony. The bachelorettes decline your proposal.
** Subverted in ''VideoGame/StoryOfSeasons'', which was released several years after ''Cute'' and by a different translator at that. It contains the first explicitly gay character in the series. He wasn't censored in the English version.
* Belaya and Juhani in ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic''. If you play a male Light Side character, the closest thing to a hint that they're even ''friends'' is Belaya's relieved reaction when you convince Juhani to return to the order. If you kill Juhani, on the other hand, Belaya talks about how close they were, before [[PsychoLesbian leaving the Jedi, joining the Sith, and attacking you when you go to Korriban]]. Juhani is a LoveInterest [[GayOption for female characters only]]... consisting of five or six lines of dialogue, is completely ignored in all possible 1st-game outcomes setting up the second game, and Juhani is the one party member from the first game to never be mentioned or referenced in the second game. According to developer interviews, they had intended Juhani to be a more prominent party member and fully fledged romance for a female PC, but [[ExecutiveMeddling LucasArts blew a gasket]] at the idea of a lesbian Jedi, and only allowed Juhani in with almost all of her content cut. The relationship is incredibly blatant in the DummiedOut dialog; Juhani actually says that she loved Belaya.
* Lillet and Amoretta in ''VideoGame/GrimGrimoire''. Lillet turns down the closest thing to a male love interest, announces her love of Amoretta and lives with her in the end, but they don't technically "do" anything.
* ''VideoGame/FireEmblem'':
** While Ike and Soren in the Tellius games are two steps away from OfficialCouple, the localization of their A support in ''Path of Radiance'' tries to tone it down by changing Soren's last line to "you're my only friend". However, there's still the fact that Ike doesn't have paired endings with any women in the sequel-the only other person he can possibly end up with is Ranulf. So the attempts to hide it were paper-thin in the first game and completely dropped by the sequel.
** In the Japanese version of ''Radiant Dawn'', the thief Heather explicitly says that she joined the army to "meet pretty girls". Oddly, in the localizations, where that line is taken out, she is still flirty. Her attraction to women is still fairly explicit in the English localization at least, where she has to be recruited by the ShrinkingViolet Nephenee, and seems to join your side specifically based on how attractive she finds Nephenee. She stays with your army under her fangirlish obsession with Queen Elincia, reviled at the fact that a man might take her crown from her.
** Kyza's line about having the love of his Commander Ranulf is taken out in localization, but he does still seem much more eager to have other men stay close to him in battle than the women (and hopes others are feeling [[CampGay as fabulous as he is]]). His crush on Ranulf is one-sided, however.
* Regarding the relationship between Fang and Vanille in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'', the term "hiding" doesn't really apply. Even people who are not convinced that they are a couple agree that Square Enix definitely tried very hard to make it appear that way. ([[WordOfGod The creators did say]] [[WordOfGay they were a couple - just not in-game.]])
* The relationship between Shion and KOS-MOS in ''VideoGame/{{Xenosaga}}'' isn't ever made explicit but the game beats you over the head with subtext to the point that they might as well have.
* The relationship between Nel and Claire in ''VideoGame/StarOceanTillTheEndOfTime''. In addition to the care and concern they have for each other, one of Nel's level up quotes is "I did it, Claire.", and in one of the endings Claire goes off on her father for suggesting she marry one of the male characters.
* ''Franchise/MassEffect'':
** While the first ''VideoGame/{{Mass Effect|1}}'' game gives Female Shepard and Liara the same amount of screentime as Male Shepard and Liara (though this romance has [[DiscountLesbians its own problems]]), the game contains DummiedOut code and sound files for same-gender romances with Kaidan and Ashley. Oddly, while Kaidan is finally reinstated as a same-gender love interest in ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'', Ashley isn't.
** Played straight in ''VideoGame/MassEffect2''. The sole same-gender romance option, Kelly Chambers, gets almost no development, no romance scene, and you do not gain the Paramour achievement for going through with it. You can get a scene with Liara again, though, if you romanced her in the first game and have "Lair of the Shadow Broker".
* WordOfGod has always had interesting things to say about the antagonists Gulcasa and Nessiah in ''VideoGame/YggdraUnion'', claiming that Gulcasa trusts Nessiah more than anyone else and that the two are closer than anyone else in the Imperial Army. The issue is resolved in this particular game by never having them both onscreen at the same time, although Nessiah (a strict user of {{keigo}}) is shown to be [[FirstNameBasis on first-name, no-suffix basis]] with Gulcasa regardless. Three years after ''VideoGame/YggdraUnion'' was released, ''VideoGame/YggdraUnison'' came out, which allows everyone to interact with everyone--and in Nessiah's route, where he's portrayed as a VillainBallMagnet hated by almost the entire cast, nary a conversation between Gulcasa and Nessiah goes by without some form of playful flirting being exchanged. ''VideoGame/BlazeUnion'', in which Gulcasa is the protagonist, has their relationship finally graduate into ButNotTooGay and spent its quota of subtext on the metaphorical equivalent of TheirFirstTime under [[MateOrDie extenuating]] [[SexAsRiteOfPassage and symbolic]] circumstances.
** The same games have [[ButchLesbian Zilva]] and [[BiTheWay Elena]], whose relationship reads rather a lot like StarCrossedLovers. ''VideoGame/BlazeUnion'' adds credence to the theory that there's something going on between them, implying that Zilva has come to view Elena as a ReplacementGoldfish for another girl she once had a crush on, a character who dies in the canon route of that game.
* Similar to ''VideoGame/HarvestMoon'', ''VideoGame/MagiciansQuestMysteriousTimes''' GayOption is referred to as "Becoming Best Friends" with someone. You can reach a level where others describe the relationship as "bound by a strong connection". This is despite the fact that the game has an openly gay character, and it's exactly the same as dating (HoYay and all).
* In ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'', there is one female NPC in the main character's hometown that has a habit of talking about resident ActionGirl General Cecille with hearts in her text boxes and saying things like "If only I were born a man". Unfortunately, this woman is hidden in an area of Baticul Port some players may constantly overlook in all of their playthroughs[[note]]And after a certain point, her lines change to something much less les-yayish[[/note]], making this more like a literal case of Hide Your Lesbians.
* While ''VideoGame/TheSims'' allows EveryoneIsBi for player-made characters, it seemed that a DLC town for ''VideoGame/TheSims3'', released in early 2013, was to include a same-gender couple for the first time in the series' thirteen-year run. (There had previously been a few single characters who were implied to be gay, but had no love interests.) The family portrait shows two men with their arms around one another's shoulders (the standard pose for married couples in the game) and a young girl with a portmanteau of their surnames who is apparently their daughter. Upon loading the household, however, it emerges that the girl is the adopted daughter of only one of the men, and the other is not his boyfriend or husband but only his "Best Friend Forever".
* Riki and Kyousuke of ''VisualNovel/LittleBusters'' are...kind of a confusing example. The two are extremely close and there are ''countless'' jokes and comments through the game about them being basically like a couple. But it all reaches a new height in one out of the way scene where it's revealed that Riki has a crush on Kyousuke... in such a casual way it's hard to believe the game really confirmed what it just did. Which counts for double since his feelings are never stated so explicitly ever again, though the subtext gets darned close at times. In the end, [[spoiler:it's never stated who Riki ends up with,]] which only makes the situation even more ambiguous. But while the subtext lives on in each supplementary material and adaptation, none have ever managed to clarify whether it really was canon way back in the original, and so the two seem to remain 'those two super close friends who act just like they're in love, wink wink'.
* The relationship in ''VideoGame/AbsoluteDespairGirls'' between Komaru and Fukawa fits this perfectly, ''especially'' on Komaru's side. Over the course of the story, the two develop an incredibly close bond, with Komaru being downright emotionally dependent on Fukawa and the relationship culminating on Fukawa giving Komaru a CoolDownHug. Granted, this is lessened somewhat with Fukawa given her characteristic SingleTargetSexuality towards Togami. Komaru on the other hand is never shown to have any interest in boys, mentions offhand to of gotten teary reading a yuri manga and, unlike previous main characters in the franchise, otherwise lacks a love interest.
* Downplayed in ''VideoGame/LifeIsStrange'': throughout the game, Chloe and Max are heavily implied to be developing feelings for each other if you choose to have Max kiss Choe on a dare, and Chloe herself is outright stated to have been in love with Rachel in an admittedly easy to miss scene. In episode 5, you're able to have them kiss in an unambiguously romantic way... but only if you [[spoiler:choose to sacrifice Chloe to save Arcadia Bay, letting Chloe die.]] Otherwise, all the players get is a very short scene of the two of them driving together and an ambiguous shoulder-touch. The developers said that they thought it was clear enough that they were in love in that ending (though they would have done much more with it had they not run out of budget), but most players didn't get that impression, leaving the unfortunate implication that Chloe and Max could only be LGBT as long as [[spoiler:one of them was going to die, in full BuryYourGays style.]]
* Mia from ''VideoGame/HighSchoolStory'' is canonically not straight, but it's easy for an unattentive player to not notice this. She mentions her ex twice, but only uses the pronoun she ''once''. She also has quite a close relationship with Katherine (whom pixelberry introduces as Mia's [[LampshadedDoubleEntendre ''very special friend'']]) and [[spoiler: if a player put them together as a couple, they're acknowledged as such in the main story quest]], but their relationship ''could'' be seen as just a [[RomanticTwoGirlFriendship very close friendship]]. And even though there are several strong hints and [[DoubleEntendre double entendres]] about Mia not being very interested in boys, it's always done very subtle, and never mentioned outright. This is most likely done so that players who have Mia paired with a boy won't feel bad, but they could've easily been clearer about her not being straight and just avoided mentioning what exactly her sexuality is.
* Franke and Kitty from ''VideoGame/{{Psychonauts}}'' are presented as best friends in-series yet an official website parodying Friendster (called "Campster") [[AllThereInTheManual states]] that they're [[PuppyLove a couple]]. Kitty is described as bisexual while Franke seems to be lesbian. It's possible that, despite the campsters precocious behaviors, they're so young that relationships are treated identically to friendships.
* Ustvestia in the Japanese version of ''VideoGame/PhantasyStarII'' is written to be a homosexual, which explains why he gives men a 2000 meseta discount in learning the Musik technique. This trait was written out of the localization, but the discount remains.
* Despite the [[Literature/{{Carmilla}} source material]] she's based off of, Carmilla from ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaLordsOfShadow'' is depicted as being heterosexual, with her literary love-interest being relegated to her adopted daughter.
* The differences between the dialogue that characters give the male and female protagonist are minimal in ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon''. One scene with a noticeable change, however, is the one on Exeggutor Island between Lillie and the protagonist. Though most of the LesYay is intact in their friendship, when talking to Selene, Lillie mentions that she admires you. In the Eilio version however she states she wants to go on a journey with him, which shifts her more into the ImpliedLoveInterest territory.

* ''WebVideo/UltraFastPony'' discusses this trope in the episode "Pirate Shipping".
-->'''Scootaloo:''' \\
'''Apple Bloom:''' No, Scootaloo, this is a kid's show! I mean, I get that they're trying to be accepting of all ponies, and that's good. But I doubt they'll actually put any gay ponies in.\\
'''Sweetie Belle:''' Yeah, Scootaloo, [[EskimosArentReal the gays and]] [[BrickJoke the Mexicans]] [[EskimosArentReal don't exist]]
* Among all the GettingCrapPastTheRadar that went on in ''Roleplay/DinoAttackRPG'', the only thing that actually sparked any controversy was when Andrea Jackson, the RPG's first explicitly gay character (and really one of only three, though one of the other two was TheGhost) was introduced. This led to the initial decision to keep her sexuality ambiguous, though a sub-plot implying a lesbian relationship with ActionGirl Maria was hinted at (complete with an implied sex scene). Fortunately, the parties which objected to this eventually relented, and this trope was ultimately averted.
* In the ''Dragon Games'' special of ''Toys/EverAfterHigh'', [[spoiler:Darling Charming]] gives [[spoiler:Apple White]] a KissOfLife to help her out of a magical coma. It has yet to be confirmed as romantic, however the {{novelization}} still felt the need to censor it. In the novelization, [[spoiler:Darling]] only gives chest compressions to [[spoiler:Apple]]. It's made even more noticeable by the fact she ''didn't'' even give any compressions in the cartoon.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* Captain Maggie Sawyer was a recurring and supporting character in ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'', and was originally part of Comicbook/{{Superman}}'s extended supporting cast in the comics. She has been an open lesbian in the comic books since 1988, but in the series there was nary a mention of her sexuality. In [[WhamEpisode "Apokolips...Now!"]], where Maggie is hospitalized after an attack by Intergang, she is visited in the hospital by a woman who comforts her and holds her hand. However, this woman is never identified, nor is their relationship explained. The credits and DVD commentary reveal her as Toby Raines, Maggie's long-time partner in the comics, and the producers explain that her inclusion in the hospital scene was their way of acknowledging the relationship in the comics, which could never be spoken aloud in the series.
* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'':
** There is a retroactive hiding to be found in Officer (later Detective) Renee Montoya was a character created for the show [[CanonImmigrant and then added to the comic continuity]]; since her role in the series was a police officer who occasionally assists the Bat-characters in their crime-fighting, without delving into her history or personal life, there was nothing that dealt with her sexuality in any way. However, after ''B:TAS'' had ended she became a starring character in ''ComicBook/GothamCentral'', with a story-arc involving her being outed to her friends, family and coworkers, and the revelation that she had been in the closet since she was fifteen; [[WordOfGod according to the writers]] this was not a {{Retcon}}, they were not "making her gay," but rather she had been gay the entire time and was just only now revealing it to the other characters (and the readers).
** Harley and Ivy, as stated above, are all but stated to be romantically involved. They put in [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar as much as they could]] and the spinoff ''ComicBook/HarleyAndIvy'' comics are much more blatant about it but in the cartoon they're not half as affectionate as Harley and the Joker.
* The ''WesternAnimation/CourageTheCowardlyDog'' episode "The Mask" has an extremely obvious example with Kitty and Bunny. [[DomesticAbuse Mad Dog]] threatened Kitty because of how close she is to Bunny, a minor character laments how good they were for each other and is saddened that they're apart, and their last scene is a tearful reunion in each others' arms, but you can make a drinking game out of how many times the phrase "best friend" is used to describe them.
* ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'':
** Ever since "What Was Missing" there have been major hints - ''especially'' in [[ComicBook/AdventureTime the comics]] - that Bubblegum and Marceline are or were in a relationship with each other, but they're ultimately only hints and always sidelined by the numerous opposite-gender attractions and relationships, which are always explicitly stated. Olivia Olson, the voice of Marceline, made a comment at a book signing about how someone on the show's crew told her that PB and Marcy used to date, but they would never outright say it on the show because of the problems it could cause.
** The Lemongrabs, with such things as a (naked) HeadbuttOfLove within seconds of meeting each other and ''[[AdamAndEvePlot starting a family together]]'' in "All Your Fault!", but they never get any sort of confirmation that the other couples did. All of this is moot with the events of "Too Old", however.
* This is the reason why the ''WesternAnimation/CowAndChicken'' episode "[[http://tune.pk/video/1112751/banned-cow-amp-chicken-buffalo-gals Buffalo Gals]]" was banned after its initial airing. The episode's titular group was a biker gang of stereotypical lesbians that randomly breaks into people's houses and chews on their carpets.
* Korra and Asami of ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' became increasingly close over the course of the series, achieving a level of intimacy that they never reached with Mako, their mutual male love interest, essentially becoming an OfficialCouple in all but name, culminating in them [[spoiler:walking hand-in-hand through a spirit portal in the final episode, gazing into each other's eyes in a recreation of the final shot of Aang and Katara in [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender the previous series]].]] Due to Nickelodeon S&P it was never outright stated onscreen, but the writers pushed the implication as far as they could possibly get away with. [[spoiler:[[http://bryankonietzko.tumblr.com/post/106008606112/ It was later confirmed]] by WordOfGod that Korra and Asami are an OfficialCouple (though they're [[BiTheWay bisexual]], not lesbians).]]
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}'' has the infamous episode "The Bands Break Up". In it Kimber and Stormer leave their bands and [[DuetBonding by circumstances]] end up becoming a duo, despite normally being enemies. The episode is brimming with LesYay however, this being an American cartoon from the 80s, nothing ever becomes of it. The two women still insist they're only friends when [[AllGirlsWantBadBoys their relationship plays up a certain cliche]], their bandmates act more like they disapprove of them being romantic than them being friends (one of the songs even has the lyrics "She'll break your heart in two"), and their friendship is quite intimate. There are implications of them living together, Stormer stares at a picture of them together that ''she has by her bed'', and they walk on the beach holding hands together in one of the music videos. Kimber and Stormer's "friendship" is considerably stronger and more grounded than even Kimber's canon love interests. The 2015 [=IDW=] [[ComicBook/JemAndTheHolograms comic reboot]] just ignored this trope and made them an OfficialCouple from issue 2 onwards.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'':
** PlayedForLaughs in a way. {{Memetic Bystander}}s Lyra and Bonbon are the OneTruePairing for much of the fandom. The LowerDeckEpisode that [[AscendedFanon confirmed a lot of fanon]] referenced this but not explicitly. They never refer to each other as lovers but they're best friends who live together. Their dialogue throughout the episode mentions them being "best friends" (with a noticeable emphasis on the term) too many times to be unironic. The first thirty seconds of them being on-screen is almost nothing but them mentioning what amazing friends they are and specifying how close they are. Bonbon and Lyra give each other romantic looks several times as well. Lyra gets extremely offended when [[spoiler:Bonbon reveals she is really a secret agent named "Sweetie Drops"]] and questions [[WasItAllALie if their 'friendship' was all a lie]] too, causing Bonbon to say "[[ItMeantSomethingToMe It was all real]]. You're my ''very'' [[RomanticTwoGirlFriendship best friend]]" while cradling Lyra's face. The discussion sounds exactly like it's Lyra questioning their romantic relationship except they never actually refer to it as such.
** The book ''Ponyville Mysteries: Riddle of the Rusty Horseshoe'' reveals that Scootaloo lives with her parents, however [[WhenYouComingHomeDad they're often busy]] (thus explaining their [[InvisibleParents absence]]). Scootaloo is instead more-or-less [[{{Nephewism}} raised by her aunts]], Lofty Love and Holiday. WordOfGod is that only one of them is biologically related to Scootaloo. A series of tweets [[WordOfGay heavily implied that they're a couple]], however Hasbro has yet to confirm it.
* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'':
** In the original version [[DiscountLesbians Ruby and Sapphire]] are explicitly in a romantic relationship. This didn't carry over to the French dub, however. The song "Stronger Than You", which originally was about ThePowerOfLove, was translated to instead be about ThePowerOfFriendship, to many a fan's anger and frustration. They redubbed the song later with the romance intact.
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bATlESAIQXE The Arabic dub]] went even further, cutting out Sapphire and Ruby's reunion (which came complete with joyful twirling and a cheek kiss) entirely, so that the two instead just run up to each other and then suddenly fuse. Of course, given the typical laws regarding homosexuality in the middle east, you couldn't expect much more.
** The UK broadcast kept the above, but it did [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wm2403n3R7Q edit out some shots of Pearl and Rose dancing romantically together]] in ''We Need To Talk'', adding in more shots of Greg watching while playing the guitar instead. You might be mistaken for thinking they were taking out any romantically charged content regardless of sexuality, but later in the episode Greg and Rose dance similarly and then kiss and this remained. The official statement was that this was due to ValuesDissonance: ''In the UK we have to ensure everything on air is suitable for kids of any age at any time. We do feel that the slightly edited version is more comfortable for local kids and their parents.''
* Oscar and Wilde from ''WesternAnimation/GeorgeAndMartha'' are never seen without the other, act like a couple, have spats similar to a couple, live together, and go on vacations together. One of them also has a lisp. They're never confirmed as a couple though, but the names are a big hint.
* Courtney from ''WesternAnimation/AsToldByGinger'' has a friendship with Ginger that is heavy on the LesYay. One episode even parallels her feelings for Ginger to Darren's romantic feelings for Ginger, though Courtney's was played more comedically. WordOfGod was a love confession between Courtney and Ginger was planned but ExecutiveMeddling prevented it.
* One reason the third season of ''WesternAnimation/{{Braceface}}'' never aired in the US was the blatantly gay character Dion.
* Seeing how many Arabic-speaking countries are extremely conservative due to Muslim beliefs, Howard [=McBride=], one of Clyde's [[HasTwoMommies fathers]] on ''WesternAnimation/TheLoudHouse'', was changed to [[ShesAManInJapan a woman]] in the Arabic dub...albeit coming across as a pretty [[LadyLooksLikeADude masculine looking woman]] in the process.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'' episode "The Inner Beauty of a Cactus", in an attempt to improve her speech Starfire kisses all her fellow Titans except for Robin and Raven. While she attempts to kiss Robin later, at no point does she consider kissing Raven. Though she does attempt to kiss one woman among the many males around the city she kisses or attempts to kiss.
