The Dagger of Amon Ra features a flapper who flirts with Laura in the ladies’ room. This video shows the whole scene (starting at 7:20):

A few authors also say the game features a “lesbian couple living in the 1920s and having to hide their affair for fear of prejudice” but we could find no additional confirmation of this.
