* ''Series/AllInTheFamily'': On the program that broke all previous barriers and taboos, one of the earliest came in the Season 1 episode "Judging Books by Covers". Archie is annoyed by one of Mike's outlandish friends (Anthony Geary, long before he played Luke on ''Series/GeneralHospital''), [[CampStraight who acts and dresses effeminitly but was otherwise heterosexual]]; in fact, Archie is so irritated he goes off to Kelsey's Bar its first appearance in the series to vent to his friends about gay people. One of the people involved in the conversation is a middle-aged man, a one-time football player who has normal male interests ... and is a homosexual. No male-on-male affection is shown in the episode, but Archie does learn that outward appearances do not necessarily mean someone is gay or straight.

** Season 6 introduces "post-gay" Spencer, an athletic, manly student who refuses to be defined by his sexual orientation.

Sitting on the opposite end of the spectrum from CampGay, Manly Gay is when a homosexual male character is shown not only in lacking {{Camp}} or feminine traits, but kept going in the opposite direction and [[RatedMForManly into the realm of pure 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 and working class jobs. 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: While being gay, he's manlier than your average man, straight or StraightGay.

This is a stereotype more associated with modern gay porn, but is also a certain distilled ideal of gay men that appeals more often to other gay men -- one of the reasons it ''has'' become so associated with gay porn. Such characters also appear in other works as a means of telling a GayAesop about homosexuals not all being flaming queens. Manly Gay characters are often seen as a form of StraightGay by some (especially Western) audiences, while a gay stereotype in and of itself to others (especially Eastern audiences).

Compare with StraightGay. If the character is stereotypically {{Camp}} or PlayedForLaughs, then he's actually MachoCamp. May be TheBear, a BigBeautifulMan, a LeatherMan or a GayCowboy. Many a {{Gayngster}} qualifies. May also be an ArmoredClosetGay. Is also commonly a BadassGay. See also BaraGenre, the genre where Manly Gay men have... ''[[LastSecondWordSwap fun]]'' with one another. Also see LipstickLesbian for this trope's DistaffCounterpart.

Very much TruthInTelevision, naturally.
