* The B-plot of "[[Series/MurdochMysteries Republic of Murdoch]]" revolves around this. Theatre buff Inspector Brackenreid proudly anticipates seeing his elder son perform in an amateur theatrical production (bragging to Murdoch about family talent), but afterward he is disturbed that his son portrayed a female character (Lady Bracknell from Creator/OscarWilde's ''The Importance of Being Earnest'', as it happens) and "seemed to embrace the role." He consults Dr. Ogden and asks her to talk to the boy and find out if he is, in Brackenreid's words "a nancy boy". Young John does meet with her and says he knows what his father is thinking and insists he isn't gay. He soon [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness visits his father at the station]], sporting a black eye and a split lip. Brackenreid learns from John's teacher that he picked the fight with a much-larger boy, and Dr. Ogden suggests John is desperate for the inspector's approval. In the end, Brackenreid has a fatherly chat with his son, reassuring the boy that he can pursue his true interests and still have his parents' love and approval.

* In the ''{{Discworld}}'' fics of Creator/AAPessimal, André, the undercover copper from ''Literature/{{Maskerade}}'', comes out as StraightGay. There are ambiguous hints in the original canon; they come out into the open here and rely on his passion for musical theatre and his status as [[Series/WillAndGrace Gay Best Friend]] for many female characters.

* Tom from ''Series/GimmeGimmeGimme'' is able to give Linda loads of trivia about many theatre shows -- whether musicals or independent productions. This is mostly through a struggling actor with an agent who loathes him. His most memorable performance was when he portrayed [[OldShame ReasonYouSuckSpeech or a bystander buying from a market stall]] in ''Series/EastEnders''.WhatTheHellHero reaction.

* Maxxie from ''{{Skins}}'' is a variant of this, as he is more interested in dancing than theatre, but wants to try out for musicals in London. Otherwise fairly StraightGay.

There is ''some'' element of TruthInTelevision, as a good portion of stage actors and fans are indeed gay, however this only really means that men who enjoy theater are more likely to be gay compared to other mediums, not so much that every gay person enjoys theater or every person who enjoys theater is gay. Interestingly enough, completely averted when it comes to most big name male movie stars, as the moment one becomes famous there is not an automatic assumption of homosexuality, even though a good portion of movie stars enjoy theater.

theater. That is, unless a male film star still does stage plays between film projects or even expresses a preference for Broadway over Hollywood, in which case the gay rumors ''fly''.

* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' had a Stan and Steve attending a Republican meeting, with a guard standing outside the convention room to check that there are no gays entering. For one method of searching, he yells "Clang clang clang!," which then causes a man in line to sing [[MeetMeInStLouis "Went the trolley!"]] The guards then drag him away, despite his claims of just liking musicals. Of course, later the Log Cabin Republicans reveal to Stan that they're gay by means of a musical number.
