* The author of ''Fanfic/TheSupermen'' has stated on Tumblr that Wesker is bi and was in a relationship with William Birkin. So far this has never been mentioned in the story (partly because Will has been dead for over ten years at the time it's set) but apparently it will be relevant later.

* VideoGame/BatmanTheTelltaleSeries: [[https://kmudle.tumblr.com/post/180734796446/i-dont-know-if-you-can-answer-this-and-its According to]] [[WordofGod director Kent Mudle]], John was treated as bi and he has feelings for both Bruce and Harley, with a slight preference for Bruce.

* ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'': One of the storyboard artists described characters Rhombulus and Lekmet as "Two live in boyfriends with communication issues" on Tumblr. A season 3 episode would later reveal that Rhombulus had a secret crush on Queen Moon, revealing him to actually be bisexual. This same storyboarder also claimed that [[EveryoneIsBi the entire cast is bisexual]], which was probably a joke made in response to another storyboard artist [[FlipFlopOfGod claiming]] that [[GodDoesNotOwnThisWorld they have no say]] in writing the characters' sexual orientations.

* [[https://trixiebooru.org/2152820 According to Katrina Hadley]], Sunset Shimmer of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls'' is bisexual. The revelation has drawn some criticism due to the standoffish way it was revealed, that Katrina is a storyboard artist and director not actually responsible for writing characterizations (in other words it's simply not her decision to make), and that other characters in the series who weren't heterosexual like Scootaloo's aunts and Lyra and Bon Bon were actually shown as such on-screen.

* The author of ''Literature/{{Wicked}}'' has said that he purposely hinted on "something" involving [[AmbiguouslyGay Galinda]] and Elphaba. What this "something" is, he said he [[ShrugOfGod "doesn't know".]] The [[Theatre/{{Wicked}} musical adaptation]] is more clean cut about this, with many actors saying that this was a romance play and it even being said that some of the songs were based off cliche love lyrics. Gregory eventually said directly that Glinda and Elphaba had a love affair.

* While some other members of the ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'' production crew are [[TeasingCreator infamously]] [[ShrugOfGod dodgy]] about the subject, according to an interview with director Masaki Tsuzuki (the creator of the ''Nanoha'' franchise) and the voice actresses of [[Creator/NanaMizuki Fate]] and [[Creator/YukariTamura Nanoha]], they are indeed lesbians. [[http://i.imgur.com/sOUak02.jpg In this article,]] the two VA's mention that in 10 years since ''A's'', Nanoha will be a housewife for Fate. The original writer, Tsuzuki, also says Vivio "frequently keeps in contact with Fate-''mama'', as often as contacting ''the father'' who works away from home, with a communication tool." Creator/NanaMizuki ups the ante by creating a schedule of Nanoha and Fate's daily routine and [[https://imgur.com/a/MaMoGay she notes that Nanoha and Fate spend time alone with each other every night]] from 22:00 to 1:00 which doubles as GettingCrapPastTheRadar.

* When Gene Roddenberry (creator of ''Series/{{Star Trek|The Original Series}}: TOS'') was asked about the HoYay between Kirk and Spock, he admitted "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kirk/Spock there is certainly some of that]]." And then there's the infamous, "We certainly believe the affection was sufficient for [a physical relationship] if that were the particular style of the 23rd century," which most slashers are convinced settles the matter altogether. There's also an [[http://www.alternateuniverses.com/judygran/footnote.txt analysis]] of the infamous footnote in the novelization of the first movie that suggests that you could, in fact, go either way on this. In an inversion, Creator/GeorgeTakei (who is gay) specifically said that Hikaru Sulu is ''not'', in response to many fans who assumed that because Takei was, that necessarily his character was also. Sulu also canonically has a wife and daughter, though the former has never been introduced. In ''Film/StarTrekBeyond'', Sulu is depicted as gay, [[BrokenBase but others, including Takei himself, derided the decision]], thinking it would have been better to create a completely new gay character. Creator/SimonPegg eventually did an AuthorsSavingThrow and explained the Kelvin Universe Sulu has a different sexuality from the Prime Universe Sulu.
