High Class Homos is a fantasy, romance and comedy webcomic by momozerii. It revolves around Prince August and Princess Sapphia, both of which are gay. To stop their parents trying to marry them off to opposite-sex suitors, Sapphia suggests they marry each other to throw their royal families off.

It can be read on Webtoon here and Tapas here.


High Class Homos contains examples of:

  • All of the Other Reindeer: It’s revealed that Sapphia isn’t popular in her home kingdom due to the people there not being as accepting of homosexuality as the people in August’s kingdom.
  • Ambiguously Brown: Percy is notably darker than the other characters, but seems to be from August’s same kingdom. His race is never specified.
  • Arranged Marriage: Defied by the royals, who refuse to be matched to one of their suitors due to Incompatible Orientation.

  • The Beard: The plot of the comic revolves around this, with the gay prince and lesbian princess pretending to love each other so they can be with their same-sex lovers in secret.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: Sapphia and Odette have this even when Sapphia is dating Marla.
  • Cast Full of Gay: Sapphia and Odette are lesbians, August and Percy are gay, Marla is bisexual, and Lucas is a transgender man.
  • Closet Key: Prince August, for Percy. He only realises he’s gay after gaining an interest in the prince and talking to Lucas about his newfound feelings.
  • Commonality Connection: August and Sapphia’s friendship start this way after they both meet at an event, and realise they’re both gay.
  • Delayed Reaction: Percy has this reaction when Lucas explains to Percy that he’s actually gay. He needs a moment to contemplate this.

  • Fake Relationship: Although Prince August proposes to Princess Sapphia in public, their relationship is actually that of Platonic Life-Partners due to their Incompatible Orientation. They decide to officially get married so they can be with their same-sex lovers in peace without their parents constantly trying to matchmake them with opposite-sex suitors.
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: August has a Childhood Friend he used to write letters to named Luna. She was a sweet girl, but she became a witch and a menace to society, and is wanted in 27 kingdoms.
    • However, Luna still is a Jerk with a Heart of Gold, as she genuinely helped Sapphia after Sapphia gave her (as a disguised homeless person) a basket of bread to eat.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Marla is blonde, and she treats everyone kindly. She comforted a sobbing Odette who missed her old life when she was a new palace maid, and offered to be her friend.
  • Important Haircut: Odette cut her hair prior to becoming a palace maid. This was involuntary, as she misses it.
  • Love Triangle: Triang Relations type 11 occurs between princess Sapphia (A), Odette (B), and Marla (C). Sapphia and Marla are dating, while Odette has an interest in Sapphia that she mistakes as being for Marla. At the same time, Sapphia shows at least some interest in Odette. Eventually, Marla breaks it off with Sapphia, leaving Sapphia and Odette in the running to become an Official Couple.
  • Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: Prince August is soft-spoken and shy, while princess Sapphia is rebellious, outgoing and isn’t averse to conflict at all.
  • Meaningful Name: Sapphia’s name is derived from ‘sapphic’, meaning ‘relating to lesbians or lesbianism’.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: Prince August and Princess Sapphia are very close friends, close enough to propose a fake marriage with each other so they can be with their lovers.
  • Precision F-Strike: A comedic example. The normally soft and gentle prince August lets one loose when he realises he forgot to let his love interest, Percy in on his and Sapphia’s fake marriage plan, resulting in Percy thinking August genuinely loves Sapphia.
  • Prosthetic Limb Reveal: Princess Sapphia is revealed to have an artificial limb. Her parents lament this as it makes finding suitors hard for her. Others look down on them for having one due to viewing them as ‘spoiled goods’.
  • Transgender: Lucas is a trans man.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Sapphia has pink hair and Lucas has pale blue hair.
  • Youthful Freckles: Marla has these to go with her kind and gentle nature.
