The first game in the Gothic series features the character Mud, who has been read as gay. The LGBTQ Video Game Archive lists a number of lines of dialogue that have led to this inference. Such as:

Mud: “Are you looking for a quiet place where we can talk, for a bit…or something?”
Mud: “Where do you sleep anyway? You can come to my place, no problem!”
Mud: “Shouldn’t we look for a cozy place, and…get comfy somewhere?”

The second game—Gothic II—features Bengar's Farm, which is read as being a space for gay men. These references are implied and have not been confirmed as canon.
