* At the climax of the third episode of ''WesternAnimation/ClerksTheAnimatedSeries'' in an extended parody of ''Film/{{Outbreak}}'', Dante is pleading with the bomber pilot to not nuke the town and going over how little he's done with his life, and Randall adds that Dante is gay and Dante denies it. But the pilot decides that it is important for Dante to be honest with himself, and says that he will disobey a direct order if Dante admits he's gays. The entire conversation is being broadcast on television, and Dante's parents, friends and ex-girlfriends are all listening, and the pilot for some reason also says Dante's address. [[spoiler: Dante says he's gay and the pilot turns around.]]

* In an ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' Q&A session, Lisa theorises that [[GenderBender Elliot]]'s '[[GenkiGirl party form]]' would do this to put on a show for the guys, despite probably not being a lesbian. This is largely based an event where Lisa (an actual lesbian, or at least bisexual) was on the receiving end of a one-sided version during college, and thought it was for real before having her hopes dashed when her admirer left with a guy she'd attracted via the Faux Yay. [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial Not that she admits to it, of course.]]

* Music/MileyCyrus has dabbled with this trope from time to time, in television performances and live appearances, at least since 2010. The 2013-14 ''Bangerz'' tour is filled with FauxYay, from flirty/suggestive moments with her female dancers to kissing KatyPerry in the audience of a show.

* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', Meg tries to be a lesbian so she can be part of her school's Lesbian Alliance Club and finally have friends. Stewie and Brian pretend to be gay in a later episode, a failed attempt to be discharged from the army. Brian might have been faux yay, but Stewie was clearly enjoying it a little too much to qualify. That wasn't even the second time in the show Stewie hatched a plan that involved making out with Brian.

* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'':
**
In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', one episode, Meg tries pretends to be a lesbian so that she can be part of her school's Lesbian Alliance Club and finally have friends. She's outed when she can't go through with actually having sex with another girl. The following conversation seems to imply that at least some of the other club members aren't really gay either.
--->'''Girl:''' I don't get it. Why would you ''choose'' to be straight?\\
'''Meg:''' But being gay isn't a choice.\\
'''Girl:''' Well, no, not for ''guys''...

Stewie and Brian pretend to be gay in a later episode, a failed attempt to be discharged from the army. Brian might have been faux yay, but Well, ''Brian'' was pretending, at least. Stewie was clearly enjoying it a little too much to qualify. That wasn't even was far from the second only time in the show that Stewie hatched a plan that involved making out with Brian.
