* All of the LGBT characters in ''VideoGame/Dishonored2'' aren't particularly effeminate or butch, such as Aramis Stilton, Breanna Ashworth and [[spoiler:Billie Lurk]]. Given that the game takes place in a fictional ConstructedWorld, it's possible the cultural influences and pressures associated with being gay are different or non-existent in the game's world.

* Marshall Gregson from ''SeriesUnitedStatesOfTara''. However, this can't be said for his [[CampGay boyfriend]]. Bonuses for onscreen debate of the CampGay versus StraightGay behaviors between the characters. His last boyfriend in the series was likewise straight gay, and like Marshall, it would never have come up unless it had been explicitly stated in his introduction.

* The short-lived series ''Normal, Ohio'' featured John Goodman as a gay male who, homosexuality aside, would have passed for a standard heterosexual sitcom dad (love of beer, football, etc).

* Brian and Steve from ''TheSarahSilvermanProgram'' come off much more as overweight nerds then campy gays. In fact their nerdiness is much more important to their characters then the fact that they're gay.
* Bobby O. from the non-celebrity third season of ''The Mole''. In "A Closer Look", he claimed that he was going to use his "gay-dar" to sniff out the titular saboteur.
* ''BrothersAndSisters'' has Kevin, but he employs a few gay mannerisms. Saul qualifies too, but only because he's spent most of his life in the closet.
* Martin Tupper's father in the 1987 HBO comedy, ''Dream On''. His father's boyfriend was also introduced, and the couple would often kiss on screen and even talk about their sex life. The three would get together and watch sports at Martin's apartment.
* Calvin from ''{{Greek}}''.

* Subverted in ''TheWarAtHome.'' While Kenny doesn't dress CampGay and has interests ''Franchise/StarWars''-esque interests, he also secretly has knowledge on musicals and keeps a journal in which he writes poems.
* ''{{Emmerdale}}'''s trainee mechanic and fully qualified juvenile delinquent Aaron is StraightGay to the point that half the village initially thought he was faking it to avoid a prison sentence for a homophobic assault. His current love interest, a builder named Jackson, also qualifies, something that's [[LampshadeHanging discussed within the show]], as Jackson mocks Aaron for thinking he's the only gay man in the world with a manly job or personal angst about his straight gayness.
* In ''TwoAndAHalfMen'', Chelsea's father, who is initially presented as [[ArmouredClosetGay homophobic]], racist and several other things (like Chelsea's mother), but comes out and connects with an old army buddy, with whom he becomes romantically involved.

In particular, he is the scruffiest of the team, leading Steve to comment on how he thought gays were supposed to snappy dressers.

** It is also slightly subverted here, in that Holt does have several features of stereotypical camp gay characters, they're just harder to notice because he is so reserved. He is fussy, neat, and cultured, for example, and is an amazing ballroom dancer. Not to mention the pride flag on his desk. He is, in fact, the head of a gay police officer's advocacy group, and has been out since the 1970s. When his sexuality was revealed in the first episode, the joke was not, as with many of these characters, simply that the character was unexpectedly gay, but that all the professional detectives that work under him didn't notice the really obvious signs. Like the framed newspaper article about how he was the first openly gay captain in the NYPD.
