Reeves(2001/2005) 'Akhenaten' p.167-8 refers to a theory by Newberry (1928) that a stele made for a military officer called Pase showed Akhenaten in an affectionate pose with another man.
Reeves wrote:
"Two kings, however, require two sets of two cartouches; three can refer only to a king and his queen - despite the kingly crowns. And this conclusion is confirmed by certain artistic conventions displayed in the composition - the convex, male curve of the neck on the figure to the left, and the concave, female curve of that positioned to the right. The images on the Pase stela were...therefore... of Akhenaten and a queen."


Link to Stela Berlin 17813 : http://www.hieroglyphen.net/andere/berlinaegmus4a.htm
Small limestone stela offered by Pase, a soldier attached to the boat or regiment Khaemmaat (‚Appearing in Truth’).

This votive stela is nothing official and we do not know at which date it was ordered. At Amarna a character with breast can be a man. Now it's all depend how one dreams Akhenaten's succession. IMO we have Smenkhkarê and then Neferneferouaton (=Merytaten). May be Pase ordered it with only one cartouche for the prenomen as both share the same one. Neferneferuaten with the red & white crowns make sense as she restored the old order. Being upfront is understandable as I believe she succeed Smenkhkarê and last longer.

Does someone know where this stela was found at Amarna ?

According to Rolf Krauss, Überlegungen zum Ende der Amarnazeit, the Berlin Museum bought Stela Berlin 17813 in 1906.
Quote : Stele Berlin ÄGM 17813, die das
Museum im Jahr 1906 gekauft hat (Abb. 1).22 Obwohl die Stele aus dem Handel stammt,
ist ihre Echtheit nicht zu bezweifeln.

I wasn't able to find out where exactly this stela was found at Amarna.
Krauss wrtites that the stela "aus dem handel stammt, is this the black-market antiquities trade?
