Zombies, Run! is a mobile fitness app that features same-gender relationships within its narrative. For instance, the hosts of Radio Abel (Jack Holden and Eugene Woods) are depicted as being in a relationship, as are Doctors Maxine Myers and Paula Cohen.

One of the respondents to the Queer Representation (2016) survey discussed the interesting dynamics between a lesbian and bisexual character in Zombies, Run! who are dating. There is a lot of discussion throughout the game about representation, and there are diverse characters in ways outside of sexuality and gender also (including race and disability). All of this works to help this particular respondent feel connected to the world that is being presented.
