~ The Queerbait-Tragicqueer-Straightcomfort Test ~

Does this piece of media have at least one (1) named queer character who:

* Can't easily be read as a straight character (blink-and-you-miss-it "representation" doesn't count)
* Doesn't have a tragic ending, and
* Hasn't been written primarily to make straight people comfortable

@bgcarlisle Wait is Dumbledore actually textually gay or is it just at-best-coded and JKR retroactively pretended she had made it explicit? Definitely agree with the note though :D

Also, tempted to make some pull requests, although I'm stalling out on whether Clarke from The 100 counts as tragic or not (I'd argue contextually not, but).
