* A rather odd version would be Mirage of ''Anime/TransformersEnergon'' who is most of the Decepticon navy by virtue of being ''a boat''. He's also completely gay for Megatron.

* Captain Shakespeare of the ''Film/{{Stardust}}'' [[TheMovie film]] (though not the book) is a [[CampGay flamboyantly gay]] secret DragQueen. Technically not a Navy man, but a sky pirate. Played by RobertDeNiro, of all people! It's said [=DeNiro=] took the role of Shakespeare out of deep regret at having passed on playing [[Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean Jack Sparrow]]. Make of that what ye will.

* In the video game ''VideoGame/{{Tradewinds}}: Legends'', the burly Berber swordsman Hasan Tazere is a StraightGay with occasional CampGay ("Does this tattoo complement my eyes?") and ManlyGay ("Visit meat market. Find bear.") concerns--and he's out! E.g., when he makes a particularly large deposit, the Banker is likely to ask if Hasan has met his or her son, and the other playable characters inquire if he's had any success searching for his . . . brother. (Since a RunningGag of the game is that the playable characters persistently misunderstand each other, this gay troper is convinced that Hasan's warrior brother Omar is straight.)

** Also, if a [[NewMeat new enlistee]] comes onboard and exhibits homophobic behavior, many crews have have been known to turn this trope UpToEleven and have the entire crew trolling the newcomer until they either get over the homophobia or break under the strain of being tormented by the entire crew acting as camp as possible.

* TheOtherWiki's page on "Sex in the American Civil War" notes that while no Union army soldiers were disciplined for homosexual activity, "three pairs of Union Navy sailors" were.

* Played for laughs in {{NationStates}}. An issue about gays in the military has four options: Ban gays from serving at all (suggested by an army chaplain), allow gays to serve openly (suggested by an air force pilot), allow gays to serve, but not openly (suggested by a marine in your personal bodyguard), and allow only gays to serve (suggested by the captain of a destroyer).

** Memorably recorded by Music/IggyPop as "Asshole Rules the Navy" on the modern sea shanty covers album ''Son of Rogues Gallery''.



* The infamous BawdySong "So What" (covered by Music/{{Metallica}}) has two guys performing SerialEscalation telling the nasty stuff they did. The first one is "Well, Ive been to Hastings, and Ive been to Brighton, I've been to Eastbourne too". All are coastal cities, and the same guy later says "I've even sucked an old man's cock", so that might be an allusion to the Navy's habits...
