* The film ''Film/ILoveYouMan'', probably to play off the main character's metrosexuality, gives him a gay brother who is far more able to act masculine/ relate to most masculine straight men than the protagonist himself. Turns out, [[CaptainObvious personality is not determined by orientation!]]

* [[ArmoredClosetGay Riley]] and [[ClosetKey Zane]] from ''Series/DegrassiTheNextGeneration'' are pictured above. Riley's ComingOutStory has been his major arc since his introduction, because he struggles with being both gay and the school's star athlete. His boyfriend Zane often gets painted in fanfiction as much {{camp| gay}}ier than he is in-universe because Riley is so much more masculine by comparison. Get Zane alone and he's as butch as the next guy...[[AnimeHair except for the hair]].
** There's also Dylan, Paige's brother who is also a gifted hockey player. [[ReallyGetsAround Bit of a player though]].

* George Huang from ''Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'' is so very StraightGay that his sexuality was debated for ''nine years'' until the episode "Hardwired" made specific reference to it.
** In a fifth season episode, "Abomination", Huang says something about how gay people grow up hearing the same insults and stereotypes about gays "as the rest of us do", suggesting that either he was closeted or it was a ThrowItIn case inspired by actor BD Wong's real-life sexuality.

** See also Dr. Reid Oliver. Before he starts dating Luke, the protagonist accuses Reid of being homophobic when appearing uncooperative about hastening Noah's surgery. Complete with a soft chortle, TheReveal, and then a jab about not knowing the gay handshake. [[CampStraight Henry]] was originally [[RomancingTheWidow wary about Reid being roommates with his friend Katie]], at first not believing Reid when he tells him he is gay.

* ''Series/{{Soap}}'' has an odd example with Jodie(Billy Crystal). For much of the first season, he's CampGay, what with cross-dressing, being a good decorator and tales of putting on makeup as a child. In later seasons, however, he's just StraightGay. Then there's his [[ArmoredClosetGay closeted]] on again, off again boyfriend Dennis (a football star), and his lesbian roommate Alice, both StraightGay.
** Years later on the David Letterman show Billy Crystal told how he was alarmed when he went to Japan and saw the show dubbed in Japanese and his character done in a much more stereotypically flaming way!

** It is also PlayedWith 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.



* Joe Pitt in ''Theatre/AngelsInAmerica'', who tries early on to repress his homosexuality, and in fact doesn't even consciously recognize that he's gay until "MistakenForGay" by his future lover.
** Said future lover, Louis, can be played many ways certainly, but it's worth noting that in their first scene together, Prior tells him: "You don't notice anything. If I hadn't spent the last four years fellating you I'd swear you were straight."
** Mind you, just before that, Louis says, "I always get so closety at these family things", and Prior replies, "Butch, you get butch." Also, one of the first things Louis says to Joe is "run in my nylons", and when he gives his name he adds "but my friends call me Louise." So Louis obviously tends to act differently depending on his company. He has issues with drag queens (he claims they're sexist -- yet he obviously feminizes himself in a self-deprecating way in the scene where he first meets Joe). Basically, Louis' gender presentation (and attitudes about same) is another way in which Kushner points up his anguish which tends towards hypocrisy.

** Kian Alvane and Likho from ''VideoGame/DreamfallChapters''. If the player makes the right choices Kian outs himself to Likho, and the two have a conversation on how the Azadi treat gay and lesbian people. Should the scene play out with Enu instead of Likho, Kian simply states he's not interested in women, and the conversation ends shortly after. At a later point in the game, also depending on player choices, Likho confesses that he, too, is gay, but has kept this part of himself hidden because the Dolmari aren't quite as accepting of it as the Azadi are. Kian was present in the game's predecessor, ''Videogame/DreamfallTheLongestJourney'', but his sexuality was never mentioned.

** In ''VideoGame/MassEffect1'' a female [[PlayerCharacter Shepard]] romancing Liara [[DiscountLesbians comes off as this]]. Liara physically resembles a woman, but because the asari are a monogender species they have no real concept of male/female, though the codex refers to them as an "all-female species," implying that while they may be monogendered, that gender is in fact female.

** In ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'', male [[PlayerCharacter Shepard]] can have a romantic relationship with Steve Cortez, who both fit this trope. Similarly, female Shepard can start a romance with Samantha Traynor.
*** There's also Nyreen Kandros, the series' first female turian, who was previously in a relationship with asari gangster Aria T'Loak.

It seems to be implied that he might have been in a relationship with another man named Frank, but it's not until a little later that we see one of the things Ellie stole from his place was a gay porn magazine, which sort of takes any ambiguity out of the equation.

Same goes ''especially'' for Tatsuya Suou, the protagonist of the same game, if you take [[WordOfGod the game writer's statement]] that his romance option with Jun was supposed to be the canonical one to be canon itself.

So he first approaches the man in some incredibly small daisy dukes and tank top, making over-the-top sexual innuendo, and even dyeing his hair blonde.

** In ''VideoGame/MassEffect1'' a female [[PlayerCharacter Shepard]] romancing Liara [[DiscountLesbians comes off as this]] (Liara physically resembles a woman, but because the asari are a monogender species they have no real concept of male/female, though the codex refers to them as an "all-female species," implying that while they may be monogendered, that gender is in fact female).

* Revolver Ocelot from the ''[[Franchise/MetalGear Metal Gear]]'' Franchise has been [[WordOfGay confirmed to have been in love]] with Big Boss [[spoiler: and the [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder various betrayals]] and [[ManipulativeBastard manipulations]] he preformed over the years were all in an effort to achieve Big Boss' dream]]. While there is a lot of subtle (and not so subtle) HoYay that Ocelot shares with quite a few characters in the series, his sexuality is not really focused on all that much in the main series, making it easy to miss.

* ''VideoGame/{{Fable|I}}'' and especially [[VideoGame/FableII its sequel]] present the player with the option of same-sex dating, but only with [=NPCs=] that are themselves gay or bisexual. These [=NPCs=] are not obviously gay - this is discovered by flirting with them and getting a positive response. Otherwise, they dress and act the way the straight townspeople do.
