A character’s sexuality is shown only as a phase/experiment. Often, a character’s sexual identity is not shown on screen, but referenced through past experiences with same-sex attraction or relationships. Usually played for titillation purposes or comedy, these characters could otherwise be considered straight, their same-sex attraction considered a brief phase, or rarely spoken of and only in the vaguest terms. As only characters that appear in 3 or more episodes were included in this list, this excludes any characters that were single episode mentions or one-off guest appearances, including characters from “sweeps lesbian kiss” episodes.
