* Occasionally invoked on ''Series/ModernFamily'' in respect to Cameron ([[StopBeingStereotypical to the dismay]] of his comparatively-StraightGay boyfriend). Once Mitchell tells a story about having to sit on a plane sitting next to a crying baby... the revelation being that the "baby" was really Cam upset that he couldn't see ''BillyElliot'' on Broadway.

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, this trope 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. 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''.

* In ''Series/LifeInPieces'', the local school theater teacher (played by Andy Richter) was made the head of the school's LGBT club. He's well aware and very unamused that this trope is why.
