* In ''Webcomic/TrippingOverYou'', Milo and Hebert are gay theatre buffs, though Milo's boyfriend Liam only goes to plays because Milo's in them. Referenced when Milo's mother [[http://trippingoveryou.com/comic/extra-5-08/ panics]] a bit after he comes out to her:
--> '''Nora:''' Think of your future! Your career!\\
'''Milo:''' Wait, which? My dance career? Or theatre?\\
'''Nora:''' Is that what this is about? Is this my fault for putting you in dance?

* Surprisingly averted in ''Theatre/{{Spamalot}'': the knight who ends up loving musical theater, Sir Robin, is ''not'' gay (that would be Lancelot and Herbert). Even the song "You Won't Succeed On Broadway (If You Don't Have Any Jews)" only takes one potshot at the relationship between homosexuality and musical theater.

->''"Homer, anyone who ever acted in, written, or ever even seen a play is gay."''

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 media, 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 the ''Literature/{{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.

* 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.
