** [[spoiler: Martin himself mentioned a "gay POV" in a future book. It's unknown whether it refers to Loras becoming POV in Winds of Winter, to Daenerys Targaryen (who is bi), or to Connington. Connington is the most likely.]]

*** [[spoiler:The reason Sansa was married off to Tyrion in the first place was to keep the Tyrells away from Sansa. Tywin organised this marriage and no one, absolutely no one dares to defy Tywin.]]


* Queen Selyse seems far more interested in the woman sleeping with her husband then her actual husband. She basically worships the ground Melisandre walks on.

** She also gets some of this with Sansa. Margaery goes out of her way to befriend her and Sansa outright says that Margaery changed her life. [[spoiler:Though after Sansa is forced to marry Tyrion Margaery shuns her, showing the Tyrells main interest in Sansa was probably using her to gain control of Winterfell.]]

* Catelyn and Brienne. Most people who first meet Brienne go on about how ugly she is, but Cat is immediately struck by her [[WhatBeautifulEyes beautiful eyes]]. She then flees with Brienne after [[spoiler:Renly's murder]], risking her life for a girl she barely knows. Late in ACOK, Brienne also becomes something of a confidante for Cat, and is just about the only person she ever shares the depths of her grief with. Brienne's UndyingLoyalty to Cat is largely motivated by how seriously she takes her knightly vows, but of the other people she's shown such loyalty to, one, Renly, she was explicitly in (unrequited) love with, and the other, Jaime, she has major ShipTease with. And when Brienne meets [[spoiler:Lady Stoneheart, and is horrified by Catelyn's physical transformation into her]], she reflects: "[Catelyn]'s face was so strong and handsome, her skin so smooth and soft."

-->"And what do ''you'' want, my sweet Reek?" Ramsay murmured, as softly as a lover. His breath smelled of mulled wine and cloves, so sweet.

* In "The Mystery Knight", there are hints of this with "John the Fiddler" and his childhood friend and loyal companion Ser Alyn. John has a drunken and rather flirtatious conversation with Dunk, and later Alyn is driven into a jealous rage and tries to kill Dunk. On the face of it this is for John's offer of a place on the Kingsguard which was already promised to Alyn, but given a Kingsguard has seven people in it, there seems to be something more to it.

* [[spoiler:Jon Connington]] felt more than the bonds of friendship toward [[spoiler:Rhaegar Targaryen]]. There are presumably very few straight men who would call their buddy their [[spoiler:"silver prince"]].

He is also going to great lengths to [[spoiler:put who he believes is Rhaegar's son on the Iron Throne, even though Connington knows he is dying from an incurable disease and won't get to see this for long.]]



* Stannis and Davos are another pair that give off this vibe -- Stannis is cold to nearly everyone, including his wife, but freely admits to missing Davos [[spoiler: when Davos is lost at sea after the Battle of the Blackwater]], laughs and smiles in his presence though the maester who raised him says Stannis "never learned how to laugh", and honors Davos constantly despite the latter's common birth and the complaints of his other lords bannermen; Davos is completely devoted to Stannis to the point where he won't even criticize him for cutting his fingertips off, does Stannis' bidding even when he disagrees, and has called Stannis his god.

It may have something to do with the fact that Stannis barely gets any affection from anybody, hence he shows this liking for someone who does.
