Gay ending in Plumbers Don’t Wear Ties

Early on in Plumbers Don’t Wear Ties, John’s mother accuses him of being gay because she has not seen him with any women.

There is one ending of the game in which John distracts and ultimately walks off with a man who is chasing a woman, after discovering he is gay. It is notably the only non-violent ending in the game. A video of the scene can be seen below.
