* The Music/VillagePeople were this when they were released. Though as their act has aged and become more retroactively {{Camp}}, it has become more passably MachoCamp in retrospect. It should be noted that the VillagePeople were not ''always'' recognized as Manly Gay early on, because general American culture at the time was relatively more macho than it is now. This misunderstanding was what allowed the U.S. Department of Defense to commission the song "In the Navy", unaware at the time of the Village People's Manly Gay stage persona. This fell notably flat in the UK, where there was a well-known joke about "Join The Navy, and Feel a Man" and public fgures from George Melly to Winston Churchill publicly alluded to the Navy's propensity for this sort of extra-curricular amusements. Planned recruitment advertisements built around the song were scrapped at the last minute when the Pentagon finally realized this. By the time the Village People had passed the peak of their popularity, they were better understood as Manly Gay, but their music had already entered pop culture, with most of the backlash against them being part of the greater general backlash against {{Disco}} (which as a genre was already partially rooted in gay culture) in the late [[TheSeventies 1970s]] and early [[TheEighties 1980s]]. And yet the Village People were still not yet ''quite'' MachoCamp -- this only came with age as their style became more and more dated in comparison with the contemporary years that passed.

Sitting on the opposite end of the spectrum from CampGay, Manly Gay is when a homosexual man is shown not only in lacking {{Camp}} or feminine traits, but kept going in the opposite direction and [[RatedMForManly into the realm of pure unbridled masculinity]].

A character who is Manly Gay is the complete opposite of the {{Camp}} stereotype. Typically such characters are large and strong, and shown doing masculine things like sports. He may have a CarpetOfVirility, he may be a badass, or he may have StoutStrength...but regardless of how he got here, the result is the same: He's manlier than your average man, straight or otherwise.
