* 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.

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.

* Twins Hikaru and Kaoru from ''Manga/OuranHighschoolHostClub'' [[GenreSavvy intentionally exaggerate their "brotherly affection"]] to cater to their {{twincest}}-loving YaoiFangirl clientele. PlayedForDrama later on, when the reason supplied for their "unnatural" closeness is an inability to open up to other people.

* ''Series/TheDrewCareyShow'' has dipped into this well at least twice. The first time, Drew and Oswald pretended to be a gay couple so that Drew could use his company health insurance to buy a hip replacement for his dog Speedy. The second time, Drew marries his boss Mr. Wick to [[CitizenshipMarriage allow him to stay in the country]], in exchange for Mr. Wick giving Drew his old job back. They have to pretend to be gay when someone is sent over to make sure that the marriage is legit.

They have to pretend to be gay when someone is sent over to make sure that the marriage is legit. Unfortunately, Drew had also recently joined the Boy Scouts as a scoutmaster, something that has long been a dream of his. They don't allow gay people to join, and Drew's superior has come by to give him an evaluation at the same time. HilarityEnsues.
** Apparently Drew and Wick are still married, if [[AllJustADream the finale]] to Craig Ferguson's run of ''Series/TheLateLateShow'' is to be believed. They even share a bed. The yay might not be so faux anymore...

* Ayame Sohma of ''Manga/FruitsBasket'' is practically the incarnation of this trope: he wears feminine clothes, speaks in a stereotypically "gay" manner, crawls into bed to cuddle with an unwilling Kyo, and constantly exchanges sexually-charged banter with Shigure that implies [[KissingCousins more than cousinly affection]]. Despite this, he's actually quite straight. He has a girlfriend and business partner he adores (Mine Kuramae, the local seamstress and {{Meganekko}}), and his constant flirting with Shigure turns out to just be a mutual gag they use to bug people (and in Ayame's case, [[spoiler:perhaps to discourage the family head from having sex with him).]]

* ''"Terry rushed up to Barger, threw his arms around him and planted a sloppy wet kiss on his mouth. This is a guaranteed square-jolter, and the Angels are gleefully aware of the reaction it gets... The sight of a photographer invariably whips the Angels into a kissing frenzy, but I have never seen them do it among themselves, when there was nobody around to shock. There is an element of showbiz to it..."'' - HunterSThompson, "Hell's Angels"
