1. Spongebob Squarepants
Bringing joy to Bikini Bottom and beyond, we love this little sponge.
We all know the traditional Barbie and Ken story. But Toy Story 3 made us question his orientation — we do adore his throwback outfit.
3. Albus Dumbledore
Yes — it’s true! Albus is and always has been gay, according to J.K. Rowling.
4. Ennis and Jack
In 2005, the Brokeback Mountain relationship went fullscreen in theaters. And we still love it.
5. The Cast of Glee
This cast is FULL of amazing relationships. We can’t take it.
6. Stewie Griffin
Stewie and Rupert? Stewie and Brian? Which charming Family Guy couple will win?
7. Tom Friendly
Rumors had always circulated that Tom Friendly from LOST was gay, but those rumors were confirmed in a flashback that aired after he died about his relations with a younger Hispanic man.
The fantastically hot, red-haired lesbian crimefighter, Batwoman, teams up with her former lover Renee Montoya to keep Gotham safe. Did we mention she’s a superhero?
Voiced by Steve Carrell, we’re still figuring out this lead Despicable Me character — and absolutely looking forward to Despicable Me 2.
10. Capt. Jack Harkness
The thing about the Capt. from Doctor Who is that he’s omnisexual. He’s likes men, women and/or aliens, the “and/or” meaning separately or at the same time.
11. Lance Bass
…okay, he’s not fictional. But he sure is hot.
Not only is Thirteen from House bisexual on the show, but she is totally, drop dead gorgeous.
This Mean Girls co-star came up with the famed line, “Too gay to function!”
15. Lafayette from TrueBlood
Lafayette speaks for himself.
16. Loras Tyrell
We meet the gorgeous Sir Loras after a jousting match in the midst of a steamy sex scene in Game of Thrones. Not to mention, his equally steamy scene with Renly…
17. Mermaid Man & Barnacle Boy
Standing by eachothers’ sides in and out of crime, Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy “Unite!”
18. Tom & Jerry
It’s a love-hate relationship. You understand.
19. Mitch and Cam
This Modern Family duo has stolen the hearts of their television audience, with a heartwarming marriage and adorable daughter, Lily.
20. Barney Frank
…also definitely not fictional, but we can’t help but love Barney Frank for being a standup guy.
21. Bret & Jermaine
We don’t know about these two, but we sure do love their dynamic.
22. Burt & Ernie
Together for years, these two best friends have been sensational partners in crime. Sesame Street says no to their marriage, but many fans are still holding out hope.
23. Willow Rosenberg
Finally, five seasons into Buffy, we see her first on-screen kiss with Tara. You go girls.
We’ll never quite know with this little dude, but we do know, unequivocally, he loves our boy H.P.!
25. Achilles and Patroclus
Though it was only subtly hinted at in Troy, this Greek couple had always been rumored to be gay. And can you think of a more perfect pair?
Really no basis to this one. We just wonder about these three Pokemon constantly living together.
The most relentless cartoon character of them all… Herbert from Family Guy.
28. Cast of Queer Eye
Last non-fiction posting — but Queer Eye, simply, rocks.
29. Queer Duck
I mean, no need to be subtle — it’s Queer Duck.
He sports a ‘bob’ and uses a bunch of baby oil. Just a hunch.
