The stereotype still survives because for some fraction of the gay male population, this is in fact TruthInTelevision. As such, this fact is greatly exaggerated by media, and this trope is made out to be more prevalent than it actually is. This can result in UnfortunateImplications, as it can lead one to believe that all gay men are (uber-)effeminate and, say, like flowers.

Unlike StraightGay characters, '''Camp Gays''' usually show up on television as caricatures or one-off jokes (see ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'' for a few good examples) because they're still seen as AcceptableTargets, even among other gays (or ''especially'' among other gays, for the crime of [[StopBeingStereotypical "making all gays look bad"]]).

* Felix Harrowgate from ''[[Literature/DoctrineOfLabyrinths Doctrine of Labyrinths]]'' wears outrageous clothes (even for a Restoration-[[FantasyCounterpartCulture esque]] society, sleeps with every man he can find {and even lusts after [[spoiler: his own half-brother]]), loves theater, calls both friends and enemies "darling," and is notorious for his [[GentlemanSnarker catty comments]]. Of course, since he's also the most [[AgentPeacock powerful]] wizard in the country, there's not much stopping him.

** Trey and Matt seem to have forgotten that the StraightGay exists. A happy gay is always camp; otherwise you've got problems that are a lot worse than just being in the closet. In "Cartman Sucks", a suppressed boy called Bradley almost throws himself off a bridge, while the Camp Gay/Camp Straight Pastor Phillips is perfectly happy, even if he ''is'' in complete denial. Oh, and Mr Garrison, who's always telling people he's gay, but isn't all that camp.

The more camp you behave, the happier you'll be; otherwise you've got problems that are a lot worse than just being in the closet.
