* TV [[GameShow game shows]] with a [[PanelShow large panel of celebrities]] were common in TheSeventies, and most of them usually had one exaggeratedly gay panelist. The most well-known examples include Charles Nelson Reilly on ''MatchGame'' and Paul Lynde on ''Series/TheHollywoodSquares''.

* Felix in ''Series/OrphanBlack'' is camp to a near-stereotypical degree but still manages to come across as a sympathetic character rather than a caricature.

to:

* Felix in ''Series/OrphanBlack'' is a camp gay grifter and bon vivant who makes art, goes to a near-stereotypical degree but still manages hip night clubs, sleeps around and makes catty comments about everything in sight. Due to come across as the plot, however, he's usually forced to deal with a sympathetic character rather than a caricature.grim web of conspiracy and intrigue, making his camp gay mannerisms more understated.

* ''Film/BlazingSaddles''. The dancers in "The French Mistake" rehearsal.
** The director fits the description, also.
*** The director is clearly ''camp'', though the dialogue implies that he's actually CampStraight.

who displays a lot of {{Boomerang Bigot}}ry in his abuse of his cast.



** The original also had the gay director, but it was the hippie who played Hitler, which wasn't going to translate well to today's audience. So the script was changed to have the director playing Hitler instead.

* The local doctor Marian in ''VideoGame/StoryOfSeasons'' is the first openly gay character in the ''Franchise/HarvestMoon'' series. He's decked in pink, wears make-up, says things are "fabulous", [[DudeLooksLikeALady could pass for a woman]], and has a boyfriend.

* ''Film/KnightsOfBadassdom'': The guy playing an elf displays stereotypical effiminate mannerisms and rejects the succubus's seduction attempt by saying she's "marching down the wrong battlefield, honey".

* Many examples in ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'', such as Andi Ayla, Andy Walker, and Peri Barclay, but a notable subversion of this trope would be Remi Pierce. Remi was actually {{Asexual}}, but played straight every gay mannerism in the book to play up a facade.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'', Crassius Curio's dialogue is written this way, with him calling the PlayerCharacter things like "dumpling", "pudding", and "sweetie pie" while referring to himself as "Uncle Crassius" to the PC. Further, he wears extravagant clothing, has written several plays, and wants to start a theater troupe. Technically, he is a [[DepravedBisexual bisexual]], as he shows this interest whether the PC is male or female, and also fits AnythingThatMoves, being interested whether the PC is human, elf, [[CatFolk Khajiit]], [[LizardFolk Argonian]], or even an [[OurOrcsAreDifferent Orc]].

* Sal from ''Series/MadMen'' is a dramatic example of this trope. It's the 1960s and that sort of thing should not exist, as far as the values of the society are concerned. So he has to wear an only-slightly-flamboyant suit and tie, [[TheBeard marry a woman]], and thank his lucky stars he's Italian and so can pass off his remaining flamboyance as just being a "passionate Latin."
