Hiding certain topics from the homepage

Under Settings, there’s a couple options for muting categories and tags. I was just playing around with it and it looks like muting a category hides it under a “muted” section on the homepage, while muting tags hides any topics that have been assigned those tags. This is good for preventing those topics from appearing on the homepage/under “latest”, but I do want the topics to be actually visible once you navigate to their category.

So my question - is there a way to prevent topics of a certain tag or category from appearing on the homepage or under “latest”, while also making them visible when you navigate to their category? We do want these topics to be visible and reachable (via their category), just not clogging up the homepage.
