* The villain from the early gay rights film ''Film/Victim'' is strongly implied to be this. He's a blackmailer who wears leather and sunglasses, has nude male artwork and photographs of musclemen in his apartment, and seems to enjoy humiliating his victims a little ''too'' much.

* Hooper in ''Film/ChasingAmy'' acts as an AngryBlackMan but is in real life a nice gay guy. However, he doesn't do this out of self-loathing - being an a angry radical makes him successful.

* A ''Series/KidsInTheHall'' sketch has Scott Thompson playing a macho actor who constantly denies that he's gay, even when he's seen in bed with a man. The sketch ends with him dead and in an open-casket funeral, with two women wondering how he died. One of them says it was AIDS, but his corpse keeps muttering "Cancer." (A FunnyAneurysmMoment as Scott - who is gay in RealLife - was successfully treated for cancer in 2009.)

If FridgeLogic is applied, this trope can become a MortonsFork. ''Anyone'' who is homophobic might be suspected of being this. On the other hand, if you go in the opposite direction and ''defend'' gays, you're [[SarcasmMode "obviously"]] speaking up on behalf of your people, which means you're gay anyway! (Then again, people who would try to catch you out this way are probably homophobes, and thus potentially gay themselves, so in that sense [[EveryoneIsGay it sort of evens out]].)

Polar opposite of GayBravado - acting gay to affirm your heterosexuality - unless it's a [[DoubleSubversion double bluff]], of course. Sometimes overlaps with {{Gayngster}} and with TransparentCloset--just because the armour's there doesn't mean that people can't see through it. May result in IrrationalHatred of gays.
