* ButNotTooGay

to:

* ButNotTooGayButNotTooGay: Discussed, especially in the case of ''{{Film/Philadelphia}}'', where Creator/TomHanks defends the use of this trope by explaining that they had to edit out more explicitly intimate scenes between the main couple because the studio [[ExecutiveMeddling refused to release it otherwise]].

Based on the book by Vito Russo, this 1995 {{Documentary}} explores the history of Hollywood's portrayal of gay characters through the ages. Give it a watch, it is awesome.

!!This film contains/discusses examples of the following tropes:

* AdaptationDistillation: The documentary is a worthy adaptation of the Vito Russo book, managing to include and expand on many of the ideas from the book. The film also benefits from the new medium, being able to show scenes that Russo could only describe.
* AmbiguouslyGay
* BuryYourGays: Commented upon.
* ButNotTooGay
* CampGay: And his less explicitly gay brother, The Sissy. Discussed in depth, with several talking heads having different opinions of the worth of such characters. (Harvey Fierstein likes them: "Visibility at all costs!")
* DepravedHomosexual
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Including some absolutely hilarious instances, like Stephen Boyd playing Messala as being BenHur's former lover, [[EnforcedMethodActing without telling Charlton Heston]].
