-> '''Norm''': I can't go on with this any longer. I wanted to be your decorator, so I pretended to be who I thought you wanted me to be. But it's time I came out of the closet. I'm straight.
-> '''Robert''': Impossible.
-> '''Norm''': Ever since I was a little boy I've known that I prefer girls. But the point is I think you should judge people for what they do, not for who they do.
-->--'''Series/{{Cheers}}''', "Norm, Is That You?"

* Karma in ''Series/FakingIt'' does this a couple of times after pretending to be gay for popularity. First at Drama Club tryouts to give the teacher something really emotional (which destroys her social standing). Then at her mother's PFLAG group after her mother "neglected" to tell the group her daughter was straight.

Where a ComingOutStory is frequently a serious event within a character's life, with friends and family sometimes being initially unaccepting of the revelation, a ComingStraightStory almost always involves the gay friends rapidly coming to accept the fact that their friend is straight. Typically involves a straight male character in a profession in which homosexuality is the stereotypical expectation.
