* ''Manga/SgtFrog'': Watching a TV show in S1E7. It is a parody of several anime. When the hero "explodes with the power of love" to save his girlfried, Keroro remarks offside "Interesting how his love for his GIRLFRIEND causes him to explode in a flaming rainbow..."

* The old radio comedy show ''Radio/RoundTheHorne'', broadcast in a time before homosexuality was fully legalised in Britain, introduced two outrageously out gay characters called Julian and Sandy, played by Hugh Paddick and KennethWilliams. It could be argued that Julian and Sandy, who were loved for their sheer camp outrageousness, helped pave the way in the middle 1960's for fuller acceptance of homosexuality that led to legal reform later in the decade. They were seen, unltimately, as two sweet inoffensive guys rather than slavering perverted monsters.

* In ''Manga/BlackButler'', Grelle Sutcliffe has recently lost all her characterization outside of this joke. Apparently, playing up her {{Badass}} long-haired [[ChainsawGood chainsaw-wielding]] JackTheRipoff side just wasn't as much fun as playing her [[CampGay Camp]] [[DepravedBisexual Bisexual]] {{Transgender}} {{Fangirl}} aspects [[PlayedForLaughs for laughs]] [[SatelliteCharacter over. And over]]. [[OverusedRunningGag And over]] [[OverlyLongGag again]]. Thankfully, this only applies to the anime.

There is a tendency for works, particularly older works and works aimed at young men, to treat same sex relationships as being ''inherently'' funny. Obviously, gay people and gay relationships can be funny for lots of reasons -- for example, if the characters are incredibly mismatched, or if the behaviour of one character is amusingly offputting, so this doesn't just apply to any humour derived from gayness or from gay relationships, only when the punchline is ''that'' it is gay. Litmus test -- if this were heterosexual, would it be (roughly, if not quite) as funny? If not, it's this trope.

trope. Loaded with UnfortunateImplications in many cases, with the idea of homosexuality being inherently {{Squick}}y and freakish - but there's no shortage of queer and queer-friendly creators who do it [[{{Camp}} while being in on the joke]]. In many cases in history, making it into a punchline was the only way to sneak LGB subtext past the MoralGuardians.

** This lessened with the addition of DiamandaHagan, but they still do gay jokes (like [[{{Benzaie}} Gay Benzaie]]). The Nostalgia Critic even used Diamanda's lesbianism seriously for a joke in their review of the ''HeavyMetal'' movie, asking Diamanda to find out whether a girl would be more willing to sleep with Diamanda if she killed said girl's parents in real life (results: no, she wouldn't).

* Ray Gillette in ''{{Archer}}'' is mostly fodder for gay jokes.
** [[AgentPeacock However, he's also a highly competent agent, going toe to toe with an entire police force to protect his Drug Dealer]] [[RunningGag (FARMER!)]] brother, with only said brother, and an incredibly drunk Archer for backup.

* Lamar, one of protagonists in ''RevengeOfTheNerds'', is treated as being inherently funny because he's gay; some gags used include his being seen doing aerobics in feminine spandex and leg warmers, and his general disinterest in watching the sorority girls after the group plants cameras in their house. His whole personality revolves solely around his sexual orientation and [[TwoferTokenMinority his race]]. When the Tri-Lamb commission arrives to the nerds' party and Lewis puts on a record of Old Man River, Lamar was quick to act.
