Idea: “heterobaiting” where at first you think it’s a show about heteros but then suddenly everyone was secretly gay the whole time
Ianto was gay only for Jack. He told his sister (in Children of Earth) that “there are no men, there is only him” (or something along these lines). Basically he was straight, but he fell in love with a man and just went with it. Which is even better than if he was gay, because it shows that all the labels we use to talk about sexuality may not be enough. Sometimes you just fall in love and it’s not your sexuality that matters, it’s that one person.
With Toshiko it’s similar. She was straight and then she fell in love with a woman (or at least she got attracted to a woman, it’s hard to tell from one episode). She definitely wasn’t gay, I wouldn’t even call her bisexual, considering how ashamed she was after she and Mary had sex. But even though she wasn’t entirely comfortable with it, she tried. And that is the beauty of this episode.
Gwen was under alien influence, as far as I remember, so it’s hard to call kissing the girl her choice. And why is Owen kissing a guy? I don’t remember that at all o.O
So, yeah, Torchwood was one of the series ever when it comes to presenting sexuality.
