LGBT Cast and Crew
Despite the lack of LGBT characters, Tolkien's novels and their adaptations include numerous close platonic relationships between male characters and very few female characters of any sort. This has resulted in a large and active slash fandom revolving around The Hobbit, with the most popular ships including Thorin/Bilbo and Fili/Kili.
