* SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: Gays are people too, and can raise families as caring and loving as hetero parents. There's a reason the song "We Are Family" becomes a {{Leitmotif}} throughout the film.
** When the United States Supreme Court ruled [[http://www.scotusblog.com/case-files/cases/obergefell-v-hodges/ in favor of gay marriage in 2015]], political commentators noted that ''Birdcage'' was [[http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2015/06/27/gay-marriage-is-american-as-apple-pie.html one of the movies that started public opinion]] viewing gay families as acceptable.

** It can be argued that Val, while not punished for what he does, at least has [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone an unspoken epiphany]] when he sees just how willing Albert is to bend over backwards for the sake of his engagement, even if the girls' parents are JerkAss conservatives. Pulling off Albert's wig and saying "This is my mother" is sort of his way of saying "I don't know why I was ever ashamed of you." It's also implied that the Keelees are not quite as ultra-conservative as they let on, and most of their dialogue about "a return to family values" are a put on for the sake of the senator's campaign.
* MexicansLoveSpeedyGonzalas: As it was one of the first, not to mention most successful, films to portray CampGay characters sympathetically, many openly Gay find the movie both hilarious and relatable.

* KarmaHoudini: As pointed out by Rantasmo, we don't see the Senator and his wife get reprimanded for their attitudes, we see them at the wedding but there is no idea of how they...evolved. There is no indication that Val learned anything from making his fathers act out a charade.
