3 Ruby and Sapphire's Wedding - Steven Universe

Funniest thing in other country's Ruby is portrayed as a boy so Rebecca Sugar decided to really stick it to them by having Ruby wear the dress and Sapphire wear the tux.

4 Luna and Sam - The Loud House

It was revealed back in the episode "L is for Love" that Luna has a crush on another girl Sam, in the epiosde that follows "Racing Hearts" we get to see a lot more of Luna and Sam's relationship however over the course of the episode they learn that they have very little in common and worry their relationship won't work out despite how much they they really wanted it to work but by the end of the episode they decide to give their relationship another go hoping to discover new things that they both like and I also really liked how supportive Lori and Leni with Luna and her relationship with Sam and giving her helpful advice especially when Luna worries about her and Sam having nothing in common.

Being bisexual myself I really enjoyed the episode Racing Hearts with Luna and Sam and I love how the episode treats them just like regular people.

They're just so cute together I hope we see more of Luna and Sam.

8 Dion - Braceface

Introduced in the episode " The Social Fabric" as Sharron's high school mentor who is revealed to be an openly gay character and despite his good nature because of his sexuality he is alienated from other students and get horrible mistreatment and in one scene Sharron is held down by Evie another student who really doesn't like Dion along with her friends draw a mark on her forehead that resembles a 9 and even she starts avoiding Dion to avoid suffering more mistreatment.

9 Mr. Ratburn's Wedding - Arthur

From "Mr. Ratburn and the Special Someone" in the final moments of the episode where its revealed during Mr. Ratburn's wedding that he's marrying another man revealing that he's homosexual, ironically years ago an episode from the spin off series Post Cards from Buster was banned due to the episode featuring Buster visiting some kids with lesbian parents, not surprisingly this epsiode in particular was banned in Alabama.

I'm more surprised the shows still making new episodes.
