A larp story question

I have a large number of Larpers on my friends list.   Quite a few of you are currently or have in the past run games so this question is mainly directed to you lot.  Have you run any openly gay NPC's  or homosexual romantic plot lines at a larp?  I don't know that it has ever been done.  This is not to say that it hasn't merely I did not pick up on it whne it was there. 

If you have not run one, why?  Is it because it never occured to you?  Was it an idea that came up and you put it aside as something that might make some players uncomfortable?  Was it a situation of not having the human resources needed to pull off the plotline? 

This question occured to me last night.  We see all sort of romantic story lines in the larps running.  Secret romances, marriages of politics, Fair Folk who charm characters to take them away, and at least one particularly creepy story at SI of a roman style family who bordered on incest.  Romances are a staple of the fantasy genre.  I myself have only played one character which I would say was probably openly Bi.  Those who met him could guess which one.   Any way, the question occured to me as to what in particular prevented there from gay romance storylines?  I thought this might be a good venue to get some discussion. I am not suggesting everyone should run out and run such a story, just interested to see why it had not been done.

oh I leave open thepossability that it might have been run only in secret.  I would be interested to hear the story if it had.

I did not count Darius cause he started as a PC. YOu have a point there. Specificly I was interested in the ones where it might be part of their romantic life on camera as it were. We have seen many standard straight romances on camera. Married couples and go rescue your love stories are the norm. I dont think there has been a homosexual version of that in any of the stories I have seen. It is not a big important think I guess. I am just curious what most peoples takes on it were.
