Obviously not at all TruthInTelevision, but slightly justified in that most people from older generations grew up in a time where the expectation to being straight was so unquestionable, that many gay people lived their lives pretending to be straight and/or suppressing any homosexual urges, and are just now beginning to come out of the closet. In this past of such strict taboo, NobodyIsGay was the more straightforward assumption. So now, Nobody '''Over 50''' Is Gay. Even {{Heteronormative Crusader}}s generally acknowledge that gay people of diverse age exist, but that they should GetBackInTheCloset -- only those more strictly isolated from this information (such as older generations in the past, or media-restrictive religious communities) may actually fail to fathom the existence of gay people in their midst.

* Frank Pickle on ''Series/TheVicarOfDibley'' came out partway through the series as a homosexual after forty years in the closet, and did so over the local radio show set up by the vicar. The only problem? Frank's normally so very, very dull that everyone in town turned off their radios as soon as he came on. He was thrilled with how accepting everyone was the next day.

* On ''Series/2BrokeGirls'' Caroline and Max go to the funeral of Caroline's old nanny and discover that the woman was a lesbian and had been in a committed relationship with another woman for many decades.
