->''"Dude. You're gay. And not like Rock Hudson gay. I mean '''really''' gay. You sing like Diana Ross and you dress like you own a magical chocolate factory."''
-->-- '''Burt''' from ''Series/{{Glee}}'', giving son Kurt a pep talk

The epitome of a stereotypical gay man. He's flamboyant in his dress, speech, mannerisms, and interests. He wears tight ([[LeatherMan often leather]]) pants and a loose, blousy shirt that appears to be made for a much larger man, often with a bandana, scarf, or kerchief tied around his neck. These will all be in bright or pastel colors. He will often speak with a lisp and is given to flouncing, prancing, and standing with one hand on his hip as the other is flapped around or held out in a limp-wristed gesture. There is ''nothing'' [[AmbiguouslyGay ambiguous]] about this guy.

Extreme cases will include near-opaque slang and drag. Insofar as he has a personality, it will often be vain and catty, or even cowardly. Even though (compared to heterosexual men) he will [[ButNotTooGay rarely be shown having sex]], he talks about it every second of the day, and if he isn't, he will be talking about clothes, or complaining about his terrible friends.

The stereotype, like many, still survives because for some fraction of the population, this is in fact TruthInTelevision, if still greatly exaggerated by media. This can result in UnfortunateImplications, as it can imply that gay men are a monolith.

Unlike StraightGay characters, '''Camp Gays''' usually show up on television as caricatures or one-off jokes (see ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'' for a few examples) because they're still often seen as AcceptableTargets. Even media produced by gay creators will sometimes take potshots at these characters, for the crime of 'making the rest of us look bad'.

More positive portrayals of this character type will sometimes be portrayed as the OnlySaneMan among a group of dysfunctional (and usually straight) characters--expect this variant to have flamboyancy as his ''only'' quirk and often sass or snark his less well-adjusted peers when they get crazy. His sex/love life will also typically be portrayed as being much healthier in these cases.

Some professions are AlwaysCamp, but not necessarily gay. A character who who acts like this but nonetheless insists that he's not actually gay may be occupying a TransparentCloset, or he may actually be CampStraight.

It has been suggested that the [[UrExample ultimate ancestor]] of the modern Camp Gay was Creator/OscarWilde, whose mannerisms combined with his very public visibility defined the "obvious" homosexual for the English-speaking world at the end of the 19th century. (One wonders what would have happened if the other prominent homosexual literary figure of the period -- [[ManlyGay burly backwoodsman-styled]] Creator/WaltWhitman -- had instead become the model for the stereotype.) However, the Camp Gay stereotype seems to have existed at least as far back as classical Roman times, when comic authors like Petronius and Martial satirized lisping, effeminate homosexual men.

The Camp Gay can be seen as the SpearCounterpart to the ButchLesbian stereotype. Contrast with ManlyGay. Compare to MachoCamp. Often overlaps, unfortunately, with QueerPeopleAreFunny. Can be seen as male-specific inversion of TransEqualsGay (that is, being a gay man means you "must" want to really be a woman). Related to MasculineFeminineGayCouple, as camp men are usually paired with more masculine men.

Note: Do '''NOT''' list a character as an example just for being effeminate and artsy. In order to count as Camp Gay, the character must explicitly be homosexual. If he exhibits stereotypical gay traits, but isn't gay, then have a look at CampStraight, or AmbiguouslyGay if his sexual orientation isn't established.



* A commercial for Dutch insurance company Achmea ([[IconicCharacterForgottenTitle better known as "Even Apeldoorn bellen"]]) uses this trope. Eve walks through the Garden of Eden, and eventually runs into Adam... who turns out to be this, seen [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rU30H0rkymY here.]]

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': [[CampGay Charlotte]] [[MachoCamp Cuuhlhourne]]. He's an overly [[VillainousCrossdresser stereotypical]] drag queen with long midnight hair and shimmering eyes. Extremely [[ItsAllAboutMe vain]] and [[TheDandy obsessed with beauty]], becoming even more flamboyant in his alternate powered-up form by adding a white silk mantle to both his shoulders AND his waist to represent a FlowerMotif. [[TheFightingNarcissist Engages in combat]] with [[{{Bishounen}} Yumichika]] [[TheDandy Ayasegawa]] attacking him with [[MagicalGirl ludicrously named moves]] such as the "Beautiful Charlotte Cuuhlhourne's Miracle Sweet Ultra Funky Fantastic Dramatic Romantic Sadistic Erotic Exotic Athletic Guillotine Attack". Bonus points for him being [[FlowerMotif rose-themed]], which acts as a ShoutOut to the Barazoku (Rose-clan) magazine that pioneered publications aimed at a homosexual market, resulting in the rose being used as a symbol for homosexuality ever since.
* Garfiel, the automail mechanic who apprentices Winry in ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist''.
* Hanagata from ''Anime/SaberMarionetteJ''. He is filthy rich, pretty delicate-looking, and always fantasizes about having a relationship with the poor, dark-skinned, hard-working Otaru. In the Latin American dub, he even speaks with a grossly effeminate voice.
* Ginka from ''LightNovel/KyouranKazokuNikki''. Oh so very much so. However, the silly campiness has been subtly implied as a coping mechanism for ''something'' on latest episodes (the gayness seems to be here to stay, though). And if someone threatens his family, he gets sufficiently badass. Chika prefers the badass side.
* Leeron Littner from ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann''. He's particularly notable because his outright campiness has become MemeticMutation. He's easily the smartest person on the show and a highly skilled mechanic and since ''[[WorldOfBadass this is Gurren Lagann]]'' "cowardly", as per above trope description, is ''not'' part of his make-up (even if eye-shadow is). He's living proof that being a flaming queen stereotype will NOT do anything to stop you from having [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Crowning Moments Of Awesome]], especially considering he's a firm follower of the show philosophy of [[BeyondTheImpossible doing the impossible]]. In fact, he's one of the earliest characters after Kamina to adopt this mindset. This is made even more hilarious by the fact that he is flamboyantly played by ''Creator/SteveBlum'' in the English dub, a VA often typecast for portrayals of growly macho badasses and he seemed to enjoy the role so much, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c6EO4_1t8qc the Gurren Lagann dub blooper reel]] should've been called "Steve Blum Somehow Manages to Make Leeron Even More Gay and Creepy Than He Already Was".
* Maximillion Pegasus' ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'' persona wants people to think that he's camp gay, for some reason. In actuality, he's straight (it's proven, since he had a wife), but still very {{camp}}.
* Jeryy from ''Manga/DGrayman''. The cafeteria manager in the Black Order, he likes wearing the frilly aprons (which he forces on the male workers there), loves making dainty hand gestures, generally acts very feminine, and calls Allen "cute" (though there may have been a [[EvenTheGuysWantHim perfectly normal explanation for that]]... ). It's shown in an omake that Jeryy reacted pretty badly to Krory asking him if he was gay though, since Krory is shown having [[AmusingInjuries a bunch of bruises and bumps]] and being forced to work washing dishes.
* The ''Franchise/LupinIII'' series has several of them, who usually double as [[SissyVillain sissy villains]], most notably:
** ''[[Anime/LupinIIITheSecretOfTwilightGemini The Secret of Twilight Gemini]]'' has Sadachiyo [[RedBaron "the Scorpion".]] If his long black hair, nail polish, and make-up don't make it obvious enough, all the "honeys", "darlings", and "big boys" that permeate his speech pattern will. All spoken in effeminate tone and matching mannerisms.
-->'''Goemon:''' "Lupin, what're you doing here, in Morocco?"
-->'''Lupin: (perking up)''' "I was just about to ask you the same thing."
-->'''Goemon: (points sword at Sadachiyo)''' "I'm here because of ''him''."
-->'''Sadachiyo: (haughtily with hand on his hip)''' "Oh hush up, big boy. What do ''I'' have to do with ''YOU''?"
** ''[[Anime/LupinIIITheWomanCalledFujikoMine The Woman Called Fujiko Mine]]'': Like Sadachiyo, Oscar also wears make-up and nail polish and is just as effeminate, except he's one of the good guys... [[NominalHero sorta.]] For all his feminine ways, he has a mean strealk a mile wide and [[CrazyJealousGuy gets extremely jealous of anyone]] who diverts Inspector Zenigata's attention away from him. Which is why he especially hates Fujiko for [[spoiler: [[CoitusEnsues screwing Zenigata]]]], while he was listening right outside their hotel room. Made worse since [[spoiler: Zenigata said she was a good lay, even though he knew she had faked having an orgasm]].
* In the ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic'' manga, Sousuke's high school has a substitute teacher for the men's swim team. He's shown to be ''very'' Camp Gay: he has the [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/full_metal_panic/c042/4.html hand gestures]], minces around, giggles, and... [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/full_metal_panic/c042/6.html hides a whip inside his swim briefs]]. He is also shown drooling over [[EvenTheGuysWantHim Sousuke's]] body. Or how about those three Camp Gay bullies in an episode of ''Anime/FullMetalPanicFumoffu'' who challenged Sousuke to a bet where, if he couldn't pick up even one girl, he'd have to swim naked in the nearby lake ''while they watch''?
* Scarron, a flamboyant inn manager from ''LightNovel/TheFamiliarOfZero''. See also MachoCamp.
* Creed from ''Manga/BlackCat''. He's got leopard print, high-heeled boots, a laced corset, feathers, takes a bath filled with rose petals (in the anime), [[StalkerWithACrush and there's that business with Train....]]
* In the anime series ''Anime/BloodPlus'', Nathan Mahler is flamboyant, but don't mistake him for harmless. If you anger him, he'll start talking in a deep, creepy voice, then transform into a Chiropteran and tear you to shreds.
* Dorian in ''Manga/FromEroicaWithLove'' practically defines this trope on the surface, but don't think that he's harmless, it's an mostly affected act to annoy people, particularly the Major.
* Daley Wong from ''Anime/BubblegumCrisis'', [[CowboyCop Leon's]] levelheaded partner. Re-written as StraightGay in ''2040''.
* Okuyama from ''Manga/NodameCantabile'' is so flaming it's a miracle his timpani mallets don't catch fire when he grabs them.
* Nene, the openly bisexual (although more lesbian overall) ClassRepresentative from ''Manga/{{Hyakko}}'', may be a rare female example. She dresses very much like a stereotypical male homosexual with all those frilly garments--and also has the mannerisms down pat.
* ''Manga/OnePiece'':
** Mr. 2 Bon Clay.This guy wears excessive makeup, dresses in a ballet tutu with a pair of fake swans jutting from the back, and his battle cry is "OKAMA WAY!" ("Okama" being Japanese slang for homosexual.) There's a certain amount of humor derived from how him and [[ChasteHero Luffy]] add the suffix 'chan' to each other's name, the latter apparently oblivious to the implications the uninitiated would pick up from a teenager and a flamboyant older man referring to each other this way. Later subverted when it turns out that despite his over-the-top ways, he's actually an incredibly tough fighter and capable of astonishing acts of heroic manliness...which just makes his appearance and mannerisms even funnier. He's not just badass either. [[spoiler: He manages to disfigure Magellan. He disfigured the unstoppable [[TheJuggernaut Juggernaut]] made out of poison that Luffy couldn't even ''touch'' without nearly dying.]]
** Not only that, but later on in the series we get [[spoiler: Emporio Ivankov, who somehow manages to outcamp even Mr. 2, but is also insanely powerful and is a major player in the Revolutionary Army, whose goal is to overthrow the world.]]
** Both can [[GenderBender switch gender at will]], including that of others in Ivankov's case, and that [[spoiler: he rules a [[Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon Disney-eque]] country wherein '''everyone''', even the animals, is a male okama/cross-dresser. There's also another country which is only populated by butch warrior amazons (including Boa Hancock).]] ''One Piece'', wonderfully irreverently anarchistic.
* Helmsman Bobby Margot in ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'' is flamboyantly gay, goes shoe shopping with the BridgeBunnies, and dispenses wise and warm hearted relationship advice. On the other hand, when he pilots ''Macross Quarter'' into battle, he's an [[HotBlooded unstoppable storm of awesome fury]].
%% * Milk's Landlord in ''Anime/SuperMilkChan''.
%%% Zero-context examples are not allowed to post.
* Grell Sutcliffe, the spazzy chainsaw-wielding Shinigami from ''[[Manga/BlackButler Kuroshitsuji]]''. Not in the direction you might think, though - she's a bisexual trans woman with feelings for both Sebastian and Madame Red.
* Bob from ''Anime/SpeedGrapher'' and Bob's male, cross-dressing "sister" who runs a night club or the other male "sisters" who work for him.
* Suzu falls into this trope in the ''Manga/PeacemakerKurogane'' manga. (He's also a SissyVillain). After being raped he becomes crazy and gay, starts wearing makeup, wears revealing clothes, has flamboyant mannerisms and prissyness, has a fondness for cats, and becomes [[StalkerWithACrush extremely obsessed with Tetsunosuke]].
* Fred Luo from ''Manga/OutlawStar''. He's a {{Bishonen}} who wears pink, acts rather flamboyant, enjoys teasing Jim, and has a blatant attraction towards Gene. Jim hates him, of course; Gene tolerates him and carefully plays HoYay because Fred is the only person with both the money and the desire to back his outings.
* The "Tour Guide" in episode 10 of ''Anime/BurstAngel''.
* In episode 3 of ''LightNovel/GoshuushouSamaNinomiyaKun'', Shungo encounters ''groups'' of Camp Gay guys (with a mixture of MachoCamp thrown in for good measure) who, unfortunately for him, [[EvenTheGuysWantHim express an attraction towards him]] on sight.
* ''Manga/InuYasha'': The QuirkyMiniBossSquad FillerVillain Suzaku was quite effeminate and flamboyant and he openly flirted with Miroku and Hojo's ancestor; both were disgusted.
%% ** Jakotsu, who is so enraged by the sight of women that he kills them (although he also often feels compelled to kill the boys he finds attractive too).
%% This context doesn't explain what makes him camp gay.
* Sanzo of ''Manga/{{Eyeshield 21}}'' dresses in drag, wears makeup, and is referred to as the "Queen" of his all-boys school. At the same time, however, he's also the running back on the American football team and has a huge crush on the monk-like quarterback/team captain and the {{adorkable}} wide receiver.
* The pink-haired guy in ''Anime/HeatGuyJ'' who made [[spoiler: Boma's hologram mask]]
* Otokosuki from the end of ''Anime/DragonBallZ,'' who talks in an overly feminine manner, dresses like a member of the Music/VillagePeople, and has absolutely no problem flirting with his opponent Trunks. His name even ''[[MeaningfulName means]]'' "Likes Men".
* Puri-Puri Prisoner from ''Manga/OnePunchMan'' fights for all the men of the world he finds attractive (though he does have less selfish reasons too), and his powered-up form has him [[ClothingDamage shredding all of his clothing]]. Despite him being the hammiest superhero in a world full of hammy heroes, he is still an S-Ranked fighter and can fight hand-to-hand evenly with villains capable of destroying cities.
* From ''Manga/FairyTail'', Bob, the guild master of Blue Pegasus.
* Yata in ''Anime/ProjectK'' once came across a effeminately dressed okama who tried to persuade him to help him.

[[folder: Comic Books]]
* Sammy and Esmeraldus from ''ComicBook/StuckRubberBaby''.
* The title character of ''ComicBook/TheDesertPeach'' is a subtle take on this.
* Vincent from the Swedish series ''Bleckmossen Boyz'', only in a [[AxCrazy bloody scary way]].
* ''ComicBook/MortadeloYFilemon'': All homosexual men are always depicted as very, very effeminate. They all look like this: flowered hawaiian shirt, semi-long hair, long curled eyelashes, and cheesy talking about flowers. There is a member of the FEA - a rival organization of the TIA - who looks like that and is called Agent Pitiminí (from the common name given to a variety of rose). He opens a box, [[DontTouchItYouIdiot despite having been warned not to open it no matter what]], because he can't stand not knowing if there is a rose or a carnation inside.

* ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' fanfic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11886910/1/Gankona-Unnachgiebig-Unità Gankona, Unnachgiebig, Unità]]'': The homophobe accused [[{{Keet}} Italy]] of being this, which was why he had captured and beaten Italy in the first place. Italy is actually [[BiTheWay bisexual]], and is ''[[HiddenDepths far]]'' [[HiddenDepths more than what he seems]].

* Pre-Stonewall gay characters tended to be swishy to telegraph their orientation without offending the Hays Code. Creator/PeterLorre often played such characters, such as Joel Cairo in ''Film/TheMalteseFalcon''.
* ''Film/TheBroadwayMelody'' (1929) offers an excellent example of a "swishy" character telegraphing his orientation. In this case, it's Hatrick, the costume designer for the stage show. He is very, very swishy.
--> '''Hatrick''': Well big woman, I design the costumes for the show, not the doors for the theater.\\
'''Big Woman''': I know that. If you had they would have been done in lavender.
* [[spoiler: Robert De Niro's character]] in ''Film/{{Stardust}}'', though only in the privacy of his cabin. After being "outed" he seems to embrace his nature, but keeps from being "flaming" in public.
* Michael Jeter's unnamed homeless cabaret singer in ''Film/TheFisherKing''. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aqQoXaD8kgQ Have a gander.]]
* ''Film/TheBirdcage'':
** Albert and Armand Goldman, a flamboyantly gay couple central to the story. Armand has a more subtle flamboyancy to him, which is why he was only one picked to play "a guy" at the dinner (in which they had to pose as a heterosexual household), while Albert didn't make it past the tux fitting stage.
--> '''Albert:''' One ''does'' want a hint of color.
** Armand and Albert's "maid", Agador (Creator/HankAzaria) is the page image for a reason. Very flamboyant, very effeminate.
* Practically everyone in the film ''Jeffrey'' is a gay stereotype, but Creator/PatrickStewart's character, Sterling, fits the camp stereotype: An interior decorator dating a much younger Chorus Boi (who's an extra in ''Cats'') named Darius with every part of camp gay turned up to 11, while wearing a pink feather boa in every scene. Sterling is in counterpoint to the main character, who is terrified of AIDS and dour about it.
* No. 4 (aka Johnny Dazzles) from ''Film/MeetDave''. Lampshaded when Gina mentioned "I should have guessed you were an alien because no straight guy is that good at dancing" upon learning the Captain's secret.
* Most of the characters in ''Film/TheBoysInTheBand'' to some degree, but especially Emory, who is described at one point as being like a "butterfly in heat."
* ''Film/BlazingSaddles''. The dancers in "The French Mistake" rehearsal, as well as Buddy, the flamboyant director who displays a lot of {{Boomerang Bigot}}ry in his abuse of his cast.
--> "It's so simple, you sissy Marys. Give me the playback, and [[PunctuatedForEmphasis Watch! Me! Faggots!]]"
* Hollywood Montrose in the ''Film/{{Mannequin}}'' movies.
* Quentin Crisp in the film adaptation of ''The Naked Civil Servant.'' He's the protagonist, and not played for comedy. But this is TruthInTelevision and actually what Crisp was famous for: being very ''very'' out in the 1930s and 1940s in London.
* Franchise/{{Zorro}}'s limp-wristed twin brother Bunny Wigglesworth, in ''Film/ZorroTheGayBlade''. He wears exceedingly frilly, pastel clothes, a male but foppish wig and mounds of makeup. During his tenure as Zorro, Bunny uses a whip instead of a sword, wears a different-colored costume every night and dresses in drag to infiltrate the Big Bad's costume party.
* Roger de Bris and Carmen Ghia in both versions of ''Film/TheProducers''. Whether it is being played straight, or is being exaggerated to the point of parody (as Creator/MelBrooks often does with prejudices and stereotypes) is debatable.
* ''Film/{{Bruno}}'' takes every camp stereotype imaginable and exaggerates them to impossible levels.
* There's one character in ''Dickie Roberts: Child Star'' whose sole purpose is to be a one-off joke character, even appearing randomly towards the end of the film to kiss the titular character, then disrobe seductively.
* Adam from ''Film/TheAdventuresOfPriscillaQueenOfTheDesert''. And Tick as well, but much less so.
* ''Film/INowPronounceYouChuckAndLarry''.
* Almost an entire oceanliner full of this in ''Film/BoatTrip''.
* "Sally Can't Dance," the requisite prison "bitch" character in ''Film/ConAir''. Also a {{Transvestite}}, PetHomosexual, and SissyVillain, all in one package.
* The "Girls" in the 2005 remake of ''Film/TheLongestYard''. A group of wildly effeminate male convicts who modified their prison clothes into skirts and halter tops and later participate in the climactic football game...as the team's cheerleaders. Then again, it's also possible they might be transgender.
* Mr. Chow from ''Film/TheHangover''.
* Johnny from ''Film/{{Airplane}}'', who dresses in a shirt and tie like the other air traffic control personnel, but otherwise is camp incarnate. And nobody notices, which is part of the joke.
* Richard Griffiths as Uncle Monty in ''Film/WithnailAndI'' is so camp that, in one scene, he's wearing makeup whilst attempting a seduction.
-->'''Monty:''' Tell him if you must, I no longer care. I mean to have you even if it must be burglary!
* [[Creator/CheechAndChong Queer Wars]], as seen in ''Cheech & Chong's Still Smokin''.
* The French comedy ''Papy fait de la [[LaResistance Résistance]]'' has Guy-Hubert Bourdelle, camp hairdresser. [[spoiler:It's all an act, the guy is actually the elusive, dashing Super-Résistant]].
* Corky St. Clair from ''Film/WaitingForGuffman'' is a Camp Gay in an TransparentCloset.
* Landlord Malcolm [=DeJohn=] in the 1969 comedy ''The Gay Deceivers''. In fact, most of the gay men in there.
* ''Film/IndependenceDay'': Marty (Harvey Fierstein) - Jeff Goldblum's boss at the satellite TV company. His first reaction on hearing of the planet-threatening danger?Calls his mother. And his therapist.
* The main character's friend in ''Film/BadEducation2004'', who is very flamboyant despite not being the drag queen of the pair.
* ''Film/MeanGirls'' character Damien is "almost too gay to function", though to be fair he is only mildly flamboyant.
* ''Film/KnightsOfBadassdom'': The guy playing an elf displays stereotypical effeminate mannerisms and rejects the succubus's seduction attempt by saying she's "marching down the wrong battlefield, honey".
* ''Film/DearWhitePeople'': All of the gay guys we see except for Lionel. He doesn't identify in their crowd comfortably because of it.

* ''Literature/TheWarAgainstTheChtorr''. Randy Dannenfelser, [=McCarthy=]'s nemesis in "A Season for Slaughter" who shows every negative gay stereotype ever made. Probably a deliberate subversion as several "good guy" characters (including the protagonist [=McCarthy=]) are homosexual or bisexual.
* In Creator/StephenKing's ''Literature/{{IT}},'' the killing spree in the 80s starts off with a bunch of thugs beating a gay man within an inch of his life and then throwing him into the canal where Pennywise awaits. The thugs all claim that they were provoked into beating the man up because he was such a flamboyant gay person.
* ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'':
** Played with rather hilariously: Thomas's solution to the fact that he can't hold down a minimum-wage job because women keep molesting him is to pretend to be the absolute gayest French hairdresser in all of history. Not only does it help counter his supernatural sexiness, it also makes him more money, since that's how everyone expects a guy running an upscale hairstyling boutique to act.
** As Harry cannot explain precisely how he and Thomas know each other this tends to lead to a lot of assumptions about him as well. Almost always played for laughs at either Harry's uncomfortableness about this or interfering with his ability to flirt with the attractive women who tend to accompany Thomas.
* Superspy Jackie Holmes from ''[[Literature/TheManFromCAMP The Man from C.A.M.P.]]'' series answers the age old question "What if Film/JamesBond was a flamboyant queen?".
* Anthony Blanche in ''Film/BridesheadRevisited'' flaunts his aesthetic and poetic interests, is outspoken about his sexuality (''in 1920s Oxford''), and treats Charles to a drink at a gay club. He also mentions having had cross-dressing interests in the past.
* ''Literature/ThePerksOfBeingAWallflower'': Patrick, mostly when contrasted with [[StraightGay Brad]].
* Egon the Poof, the 1940's Berlin gangster in Creator/SvenHassel's ''O.G.P.U Prison''.
* Baron de Charlus from Creator/MarcelProust's novel ''A la Recherche du Temps Perdu'' (''Remembrance of Things Past'') manages to combine this trope with ArmouredClosetGay, thereby [[DeconstructedTrope deconstructing it]]. ItMakesSenseInContext.
* Slightly subverted with Magnus Bane, from "The Mortal Instruments", due to him officially being bisexual.
* Ruthless British government trouble-shooter Lord Pumphrey in the Sharpe series.
* In Patricia Briggs's Literature/{{Mercy Thompson}} series, Kyle, a divorce lawyer, plays this to his advantage; how much exactly he amps it up depends on who he's with and the situation, but mainly to either make homophobic individuals uncomfortable and, with his job, as a way of reassuring his female clients that they're in no danger of him hitting on them.
* In Creator/TomKratman's ''Literature/{{Caliphate}}'', Lee, Ling's Chinese control officer is, from what little is seen of him, flamboyantly gay.
* Felix Harrowgate from ''[[Literature/DoctrineOfLabyrinths Doctrine of Labyrinths]]'' wears outrageous clothes (even for a Restoration-[[FantasyCounterpartCulture esque]] society, sleeps with every man he can find, and even lusts after [[spoiler: his own half-brother]]), loves theater, calls both friends and enemies "darling," and is notorious for his [[GentlemanSnarker catty comments]]. Of course, since he's also the most [[AgentPeacock powerful]] wizard in the country, there's not much stopping him.
* In ''[[Literature/EddieLaCrosse The Sword-Edged Blonde]]'', Tanko, the interior decorator who gives Eddie information about the villain's lair, deliberately adopts this image because it's [[AlwaysCamp expected of his job]] (and because his rich male clients wouldn't let their wives near him otherwise). He ''is'' genuinely gay, but not inclined to be flamboyant.
* Firesong k'Treva and Silverfox k'Leshya from ''Literature/HeraldsOfValdemar'' both fit this trope, especially the former. Notably, they have other traits and Firesong in particular is a powerful mage who is instrumental to saving the world.
* Creator/AndreiBelyanin's ''Auburn Knight'' has Valera Lyustritsky, who is Ilona's neighbor and GayBestFriend. He behaves like a typical example of the trope and constantly tries to seduce Sir Ned Hamilton, who, being a Medieval knight, doesn't understand and simply assumes that Valera's affection is of the brotherly kind. Despite this, when push comes to shove, Valera can show himself to be a BadassGay, such as when he takes charge of an artillery brigade near Pskov during UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo and drives back German tanks and the black knights. Later, he also defeats a ViolentGlaswegian in combat.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* ''Series/KamenRiderGaim'': Oren. Oh, Oren
* ''Series/HappyEndings'' has Derek, an offensively-over-the-top-Sex-and-the-City gay guy that [[StraightGay Max]] finds for Penny so she can be a Fag Hag.
* ''Series/ModernFamily'' has two somewhat conflicting examples. Mitchell, who is somewhat effeminate but more take charge and less dramatic than his partner Cameron. On the other hand, Cameron, despite loving showtunes, being flamboyant and generally stereotypical, is also skilled at sports and had a fairly rough, physical upbringing on a farm.
* Bryan from ''Series/TheNewNormal''.
* Probably one of the earliest examples: Ernie Kovacs' character Percy Dovetonsils, a bespectacled, martini-swilling poet rarely seen without his tiger-stripe smoking jacket.
* ''Series/ProjectRunway'': At ''least'' three or four designers per season. Although, being a show about fashion design, it's inevitable.
* ''Series/TheLeagueOfGentlemen'': Herr Lip, Keith Drop.
* ''Series/HellsKitchen'': Fransisco the party planner. Possibly Jean-Phillippe as well.
* ''{{Series/QI}}'': [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8WIscxut_ak Wo ist mein Handy?]]
* On ''Series/TopGear'' when James May reviewed the Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupé, he said, "You really wouldn't want to be seen in the backseat of this car unless you were the Queen of England, or Elton John...which is the same thing, really."
* ''Series/UglyBetty'':
** Marc.
** Subverted in one episode, where Camp Gay fashion reporter Suzuki St. Pierre is revealed to actually be a macho family man from New Jersey. He took on the Suzuki persona in order to succeed in the fashion industry.
** Justin Suarez, who was in the TransparentCloset until the last season.
* ''Series/WillAndGrace'':
** Jack. Will actually said once, "Is there any part of the stereotype you ''don't'' fit?"
** To a lesser degree, Will himself. Will's portrayal was FairForItsDay, as he wasn't... well, Jack... but certainly camp enough to be noteworthy in RealLife.
** Taken UpToEleven in British imitator/parody ''Series/GimmeGimmeGimme'', in the character of Tom.
* ''Series/AmericanIdol'':
** Danny Noriega from Season 7. Some people weren't likin' it! Amusingly, he went on to a career post-Idol as [[{{Series/RuPaulsDragRace}} drag queen Adore Delano]]
** Season 8 competitor Nick Mitchell's on-stage persona Norman Gentle was as camp as could be, from his headband to his sparkly shirt. He tried to make up for his not-so-good singing with rather questionable stage antics, including what was described by Randy Jackson as "attempting to get to 2nd base with the show logo" the first week of the top 36.
** Adam Lambert.
* ''Series/TheXFactor'', [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0FCtXE4MiWw Diva Fever]], whose performances were pure, distilled camp.
* Emmet from ''Series/QueerAsFolk''.
** Alexander from the UK ''Queer as Folk''. As his actor has gone on to prove in ''Series/CoronationStreet'', he really is that camp.
* Lord Rupert from ''Series/TheTenthKingdom.''
* ''Series/{{Switch|2012}}'': Aaron, colleague and gay best bud of Jude. She's the one that ReallyGetsAround of the FourGirlEnsemble... obviously. But Aaron is fabulous.
* Carson Kressley, possibly the most flamboyantly gay of the five makeover artists of ''Series/QueerEye''. And he'll intentionally play it for laughs. One episode had him jokingly throw a fit and storm out of the room after the episode's straight guy disagreed with him over a jacket.
* Steve and Edie in ''Series/TheXFiles'' episode "X-Cops". They are both very gay, very campy black men in their 40s. Steve is a little toned down while Edie is over-the-top feminine and very excited to see the cameras. (A TV crew is following the police in their neighbourhood.)
* Sal from ''Series/MadMen'' is a dramatic example of this trope. It's the 1960s and that sort of thing should not exist, as far as the values of the society are concerned. So he has to wear an only-slightly-flamboyant suit and tie, [[TheBeard marry a woman]], and thank his lucky stars he's both Italian and a decent artist and so can pass off his remaining flamboyance as just being a "passionate Latin" and a "creative type."
* The critics on the ''Series/InLivingColor'' sketch "Men on Film." The stereotypical characters played for laughs might make some PC types wince, but Damon Wayans and David Alan Grier were surprisingly accurate in some areas of portraying gay black men, like referring to women as "fish."
--> '''Critics''': ''Hate-ed'' it!
* Buddy Cole, the acid-tongued "alpha fag" from ''Series/TheKidsInTheHall'' and Scott Thompson's stand-up acts, is rare comedic Camp Gay character who's the one telling the jokes rather than being the butt of them. [[WordOfGod Thompson]] has said that part of the character's intent was to acknowledge that the stereotype is based on reality while pointing out that there's nothing wrong with being effeminate, [[CompletelyMissingThePoint but a lot of people misinterpreted it as just making fun of gay men]].
* Parodied by Dafydd, 'The Only Gay In The Village' in ''Series/LittleBritain'', who struts around town in an increasing variety of stereotypically 'gay' outfits camping it up as much as possible. Meanwhile, all of the other gay or bi- people in the village (whose existence he strenuously denies) are for the most part about as mixed and varied a bunch as you'd expect in real life.
* ''Series/{{Extras}}'':
** Kind-of parodied. Andy Millman almost loses his chance to get his sitcom filmed by calling his writing partner "too gay." He subsequently apologises... although another recurring character is the definition of the stereotype, (and who works in theatre, no less) with his flamboyance played for laughs without apparent irony.
** The character (Bunny)was in a transparent closet in his first appearance and later came out to Andy, which embarrassed him in front of his yobbo schoolmates.
* In ''[=NileCity 105.6=]'', the Fire Brigade Chief, who takes this UpToEleven. The other firefighters on the show are possibly StraightGay, however.
* The Petographers Stuart and Ollie from Series/ICarly, complete with a cat they named Harmoo.
* ''Series/{{Glee}}'':
** Kurt, especially in early seasons. It's made fairly explicit that he only expresses any interest in football or cars to try to connect with his mechanic father, and that outside of that he's camp as can be. No one who keeps a hope chest full of tiaras and kicks a football while dancing to [[EarWorm "Single Ladies"]] can be described as a StraightGay. Later in the series though, Kurt becomes more confident and doesn't have to use his clothes to grab attention, so he dresses more subdue. He's still fashion forward, but is not very flamboyant. As his father [[SincerityMode lovingly]] describes him:
-->'''Burt:''' You're gay. And you're not like [[StraightGay Rock Hudson-gay]], you're really gay. You sing like Diana Ross, and you dress like you own a [[Literature/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory magic chocolate factory]]--
-->'''Kurt:''' Okay, why are you being so mean to me?
-->'''Burt:''' --And what is wrong with any of that?
** Sandy is the one-note, [[QueerPeopleAreFunny camp-as-punchline]] version of this trope.
** Blaine zig-zags this trope. He genuinely loves football, learned to box and can sometimes 'pass' as straight, but he's also read Patti [=LuPone's=] new book, knows all the Vogue covers, and loves showtunes. His wardrobe itself is a mix of classic - bowties and gelled hair - with more flamboyant aspects like bright, super tight, skinny jeans and very fitted shirts.
** The show has also discussed gender roles in Kurt and Blaine's relationship. While Blaine might appear to be more outwardly masculine, he has been said to express emotion in traditionally female ways (like not being afraid of intimacy, being more open about crying), unlike Kurt, who in later seasons expressed emotion in a more traditionally masculine way.
* ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'':
** Subverted with Dana Carvey's Lyle the [[CampStraight Effeminate Heterosexual]], in which Carvey plays a garden variety, married suburban dad everyone that assumes is gay because he behaves in a stereotypical Camp Gay manner. When asked if he's gay, his reply is a heavily-lisping "That's insaaaaaane!"
** Stefon, Weekend Update's "City Correspondent", played by Bill Hader, who, whenever prompted by Seth Meyers to talk about relatively normal things to do in New York City, inevitably talks about increasingly weird and alarming nightclubs. What's notable about this example is that Stefon being gay ''isn't'' the punchline to the joke, like so many camp gay characters on this and other comedy shows. The punchline is that Stefon is so wrapped up in his bizarre New York underground club world (and most likely burned out from excessive drug use and lack of sleep -- he does talk about being awake for three days and, in the Bruno Mars episode, his day starts at 7 o'clock at night...right after he wakes up from wherever he crashed and goes home to his trash can next to the Radio Shack on 23rd and 7th) that he has no idea what's considered "normal" or "family-friendly" (as seen with both his recurring appearances as the Weekend Update city correspondent and in his first sketch, where Stefon is the estranged brother of a Disney screenwriter who pitches a family-friendly sports drama).
* Many, many one-shot characters on ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'', often policemen or clergy. Subverted in the "Biggles dictates a letter" sketch, where the admitted homosexual character is StraightGay; and the over-the-top camp character forcefully asserts his heterosexuality.
--> '''Grp. Capt. Biggles''': "Ginger, are you a poof?"\\
'''Ginger''': (Very effeminate and bizarrely dressed character flounces in, in a highly campy manner.) '''"I should say not!"''' (Flounces off equally campy.)\\
'''Grp. Capt. Biggles''': "Thank God for that! Stout Fellow! Salt of the Earth! Backbone of England! Funny... he looks like a poof."
** [[IsntItIronic Ironic]] in that Biggles is played by RealLife StraightGay Graham Chapman, who detested Camp Gay mannerisms and donned a pipe-smoking, social drinking, mountain-climbing "man's man" personality to [[SubvertedTrope subvert]] it.
** And then there was [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ol5Dfs7jqFI Close Order Swanning-About Squad]], which played this trope so mindboggingly [[{{Pun}} straight]], its [[MultipleReferencePun queerness]] is almost unrivaled.
---> '''Officer''': '''[[LargeHam SQUAAAD!!]] [[LampshadeHanging CAMP IT!!]] [[PunctuatedForEmphasis UP!!]]'''
* Donald Maltby from the late 1980's Showtime TV series ''Brothers''.
* ''Series/NoahsArc'': Alex, and to a lesser extent, Noah (Both are feminine, but Alex is more outspoken and flamboyant).
* Dean Craig Pelton on ''Series/{{Community}}'' is almost certainly this, with a dash of PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad for flavor (he renames the community college's sports teams to "the Human Beings").
** He actually goes way beyond Camp Gay - when he's approached to represent the faculty as their token gay, he states that 'gay' is only 2/7th of what he is.
* ''Series/NurseJackie'':
** Mo Mo.
** Thor.
* TV [[GameShow game shows]] with a [[PanelShow large panel of celebrities]] were common in TheSeventies, and most of them usually had one exaggeratedly gay panelist. The most well-known examples include Charles Nelson Reilly on ''Series/MatchGame'' and Creator/PaulLynde on ''Series/TheHollywoodSquares''.
** The 2006 revival of ''Series/IveGotASecret'' featured a panel of nothing but gays.
* Lorne from ''Series/{{Angel}}'' is Camp Bisexual.
* Subverted in one episode of ''Series/{{Cheers}}'' where Norm attempts to make a career of a little-used talent for interior decor -- but finds he must act the role of a Camp Gay in order to be taken seriously by potential customers. Since he's a burly, beer-swilling, and gruff straight, this is a tall order, and he eventually breaks character in front of some clients, resulting in his new career going down the tubes.
* In the Italian (actually a format born in Canada/France) series ''Series/CameraCafe'', Pippo somewhat fits the bill: openly gay, [[ZigZaggingTrope yet also an example of]] CampStraight, given his clothing.

* Mr. Humphries from ''Series/AreYouBeingServed'' fits this trope to a tee, though his sexual orientation is never ''explicitly'' stated in the show.
--> Mr. Humphries: ''"I had just bent down to tighten my nuts, and there was a double yellow line, see? And next thing I knew, there was policeman behind me. He put a sticker on my helmet and tried to clamp me."'' ([[DoubleEntendre Ahem]]).
* Many times on ''Series/TheBennyHillShow'': sometimes they come on to Benny, sometimes it's Benny himself as an actor playing a gruff character but breaks character in HilariousOuttakes.
* ''Series/TheShadowLine'' has Ratallack, a lisping, effeminate {{Gayngster}}. He's ''really'' not the kind of person you can cross though. Not if you want to live.
* Kenny James from ''Series/MyNameIsEarl''
* Tristan in ''Series/{{Degrassi}}'', to the point that [[http://lyleodonohoe.tumblr.com/post/28040153288/tristan-as-a-stereotype his actor felt it necessary to defend him from accusations of being a stereotype]].
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=endscreen&NR=1&v=Bl12HA1ZmqI Historical Fashion Fix]] host (a loose parody of Gok Wan) from ''Series/HorribleHistories''.
* Many characters played by Alan Sues on Series/RowanAndMartinsLaughIn, especially the sports reporter.
* Paul in ''Series/NeverWipeTearsWithoutGloves''.
* Felix in ''Series/OrphanBlack'' is a camp gay grifter and bon vivant who makes art, goes to hip night clubs, sleeps around and makes catty comments about everything in sight. Due to the plot, however, he's usually forced to deal with a grim web of conspiracy and intrigue, making his camp gay mannerisms more understated.
* In ''Series/TheITCrowd'', an AmbiguouslyGay guy names Philip takes Jen, Moss and Roy to the theatre to see a play called ''Gay''. The play is obviously extremely gay and borders on being a drag show.
* On ''Series/SixFeetUnder'', David Fisher's friends from choir acted effeminately, particularly Patrick. It's noticeable in their body language and gestures and they way they speak. David's boyfriend's circle of friends were rough [[StraightGay Straight Gays]] in fireman or police uniforms.
* ''Series/{{Metrosexuality}}'' has quite a few, being a LGBT show but most notably Max, even though he loses all campiness when he starts to speak seriously.
* Steve Jinks in ''Series/{{Warehouse 13}}'' is StraightGay. His LiteralSplitPersonality in "Savage Seduction", however, is CampGay incarnate.
* Alex Turnbull in New Zealand TV show ''Series/ShortPoppies'', played by Creator/KarlUrban, is as camp as the proverbial field of tents.
* The Life Science teacher in ''Series/NedsDeclassifiedSchoolSurvivalGuide''. Bonus points since the show airs on {{Creator/Nickelodeon}}.
* Albert and Victor from ''Series/AnotherPeriod'' are flamboyant and obviously in a relationship despite being married to women but no one notices. Or probably, no one cares.
* On the reality show ''Series/TheJoeSchmoShow'', the character of Kip was so gay that he was described as "parade gay." Except that Kip was just that, a character. The actor who played him wasn't gay at all, and everyone the show except the titular "Schmo" was an actor. He did such a good job selling it that Matt Gould, a.k.a. Joe Schmo, was completely fooled from the very start.
* Sitcom ''Terry and Julian'' subverted wholesome British [[DomCom DomComs]] by matching innocent straight man (in every sense) Terry with his new housemate, the flamboyant and very, very, gay comedian Creator/JulianClary. HilarityEnsues as Julian leads Terry into one funny scrape after another.
* British TV gameshows appear to work best when the compere is flamboyantly or obviously camp gay. Larry "mmm, shut that door! Grayson on ''Series/TheGenerationGame'', Dale Winton (''Supermarket Sweep''), Paul O'Grady/[[DragQueen Lily Savage]] (''Blankety Blank'')...
* In ''Series/UnbreakableKimmySchmidt'', Kimmy's roommate Titus Andromedon is an over-the-top flamboyant drama queen who collects campy clothes and constantly sings musical theatre. Gets a LampshadeHanging, because his natural tendency for this it makes it hard for him to be cast in roles outside of [[TypeCasting the funny gay friend]]. He ends up getting coaching so that he can pass off as StraightGay.
* Sebastian from ''Series/ShakespeareAndHathawayPrivateInvestigators'', although so far the evidence for his sexual orientation is only second-hand.

* Niki from ''Manhwa/ZippyZiggy''.
* Hom from ''Webcomic/WelcomeToRoom305'' wears brightly toned clothing and is mildly flamboyant. He tries to pass himself as CampStraight around friends.

* Music/ToddRundgren's song 1973 "You Don't Have to Camp Around" from ''A Wizard, a True Star'' lists and mocks several stereotypical attributes of camp gays.
* Deconstructed by Canadian [[{{Nerdcore}} nerd-rapper]] Jesse Dangerously in his song ''A Single Gay Male on his Thirtieth Birthday''.
* ''Creator/MontyPython's The Final Ripoff'' comedy CD features "Interview With Carl French," in which the interviewer suddenly veers off topic and accuses French of being a "raving queen," "a real screamer, a real 'Whoops! Get out! Don't mind me dear!' limp-wristed caricature." The interviewer gets increasingly hostile until he reveals that he's only interested in finding out where French picks up his "innocent little boys."
* Ben Gay and the Silly Savages' 1973 song "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C1ix8a66GT4 The Ballad of Ben Gay]]" plays with this one and ManlyGay. Likewise [[Music/WeirdAlYankovic Weird Al's]] "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uCno1HSNUnE Truck Drivin' Song]].
* Music/BloodhoundGang has a couple of camp gay characters in his "Bad Touch" video, more prominent in the uncensored (original) version of it.
* Several songs by Mexican group ''Banda Fresa'' feature a camp gay character. For example, ''La Dieta'' and ''Ay, Mariposa''.
* The 1976 novelty song "C.B. Savage" by country music artist Rod Hart. Released during an era where songs about the citizens band radio and its tie to truck driving songs were popular, the song sees an effeminate-sounding truck driver begin broadcasting over the C.B. radio, asking for help in locating "smokies." As the conversation continues, he begins using more and more double-entendre, implying he wants to meet with the truckers. The conversation is heard by the song's protagonist, the lead driver in a five-truck convoy protesting the then-55 mph speed limit. In the end, the truck driver -- worried that he is being stalked by a creepy gay man -- pulls off the road ... and it isn't long before he realizes the whole thing was a setup for his fellow truck drivers to be arrested for speeding. (The "gay truck driver" that was "stalking" the convoy was a corrupt highway patrolman, and had successfully exploited the homophobia of the truck driver.)

* Steveo from San Francisco in ''Pinball/TheChampionPub''
* The main character of ''VideoGame/JinniZeala,'' a male genie who throws parties in a Flying Harem while wearing a rainbow-colored feathered turban.
* One of the characters of the film-within-a-game of ''[[Pinball/LightsCameraAction Lights... Camera... Action!]]'' is "Queen," a flamboyantly effeminate man with a loose shirt and leather-skinned bandanna draped over his shoulder.

[[folder:Professional Wrestling]]
* In Professional Wrestling, the most common source of camp gays is the exotico class. Wrestlers who specialize in emasculating their opponents into submissions. The Christopher Street Connection are likely the most notable among English speaking fans. Of course, some exoticos are [[CampStraight openly straight.]]
* [[Wrestling/GeorgeWagner "Gorgeous" George Wagner]] could veer into this trope sometimes, well a lot of the times. Wearing a sparkly gown probably qualifies him alone, though George and all wrestlers of his mold [[AmbiguouslyGay would never confirm or deny being gay.]]
* [[Wrestling/ExoticAdrianStreet "Exotic" Adrian Street]] "Adorable" Adrian Adonis, Lenny and Lodi and [[Wrestling/RicoConstantino Rico]] are among those who followed Gorgeous George's example.
* Orlando Jordan wanted to work his real-life bisexuality into his gimmick at the end of his [=WWE=] run, but was let go before it materialized. It materialized wholesale when he went to Wrestling/{{TNA}}, fluctuating between Camp Gay and DepravedBisexual.
* ''Wrestling/DramaticDreamTeam'': Danshoku Dino

* Radio comedians Radio/HudsonAndLandry had a recurring character: football star Bruiser La Rue.
* In the [[TheEighties early '80s]], when he was on DC101 in Washington, D.C., Creator/HowardStern had a bit titled "Out of the Closet Stern".
* Radio/WarhorsesOfLetters - Marengo: "Oh my horsey God"
* Julian and Sandy of ''Radio/RoundTheHorne''.
* Creator/{{BBC}} Radio Two has appointed quite a few flamboyantly gay DJ's to host weekend shows. Creator/GrahamNorton; Allan Carr; Paul O'Grady.
* ''Radio/LoZooDi105'': Just about ''any'' gay character ever portrayed in the whole show.

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* Male followers of Slaanesh in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' tend to fall into this stereotype, combined with DepravedHomosexual, when they're not [[SexDrugsAndRockAndRoll drug-guzzling rockers]]. Sometimes even when they are. Chaos being what it is, however, [[AnythingThatMoves few of them actually restrict themselves to the same sex]]. [[BestialityIsDepraved Or the same species]].
* Parodied in the blaxploitation expansion of ''TabletopGame/GraveRobbersFromOuterSpace'' with the character archetype "The Stereotypically Flamboyant Gay Guy''.

* Albin in ''[[Theatre/LaCageAuxFolles La Cage aux Folles]]'', to say nothing of his drag queen alter ego Zaza.
** Jacob, the cheeky FrenchMaid and personal confidante to Albin, often in drag no less.
* Roger [=DeBris=] ([[PunnyName debris?]]) and Carmen Ghia from TheMusical of ''Film/TheProducers'', no less than in the original film version.
** Lets not forget Roger's production team and roommates composed entirely of males ''with one exception''.
* ''Oh My Godmother'', which puts a contemporary gay spin on the classic ''Literature/{{Cinderella}}'' story, is essentially a grandiose celebration of this trope from it's characters to the songs and the way it's generally presented.
* Belize, and to a lesser extent Prior, from ''Theatre/AngelsInAmerica''.
** More to the point, Belize and Prior in tandem. They speak fluent camp with each other, and tend to dial it down to a mere accent when talking with other characters, especially (assumed) straight ones.
* Herbert in ''Theatre/TanzDerVampire'' -- blond, androgynously pretty and flamboyant, he becomes infatuated with the young vampire-hunter Alfred and tries to bite him.
* Electra in ''Theatre/StarlightExpress'' fits this trope ''almost'' perfectly--he's bisexual rather than completely gay, but was played by the famous John Partridge in the rewritten London production. One of his groupies, Purse, ''is'' a perfect example of this trope when the actor gives him characterization other than "Electra's money truck."
* Several of the characters in Robert Patrick's ''Untold Decades,'' including, perhaps most memorably, the main character in "Pouf Positive," memorably portrayed by Harvey Fierstein.
--> "But of course fairies have been disappearing since the 1970s Marlboro Macho Movement. If I live till noon, I will never understand clones trying to act like the very bullies that beat us up! They are living proof, wherever that still applies, that you don't have to learn to act gay, you have to learn to act straight -- which may be the origin of the verb 'to ape'."
--> "Must one go through all five stages -- oh, what are they? Anger, denial, bargaining, depression and acceptance. Well, back up, because here comes my acceptance speech. I am now, and have always been, a flaming ''faggot!!'' Responsible for style in its every manifestation, and I'm making my own five stages: ''flippancy, sentimentality, sarcasm, camp, and smut!!''"
* Tommy Boatwright from ''The Normal Heart,'' to some degree.
-->'''Hiram:''' The mayor is not gay!
-->'''Tommy:''' Oh, come on, Blanche!
* ''Modern Luv'' has a camp gay dancer alongside its ChorusGirls, and his StraightGay partner.
* Casey's best guyfriend in ''First Date'', who calls her several times to try to give her a "bailout" on the date.
* [[DragQueen Angel]] in ''Theatre/{{RENT}}'', if not outright {{transgender}}. The actors who play him often fit this trope as well.
* ''Theatre/TorchSongTrilogy'': Harvey Fierstein's character. "Try as I might, I just can't walk in flats." (he is a professional DragQueen)
* ''Theatre/MidlifeTheCrisisMusical'': In the "I Quit" song, a man comes out to his wife and children and progressively becomes more stereotypical as his part in the song continues.
--> "I'm gay! Hooray! Throw my power tools away / I'm not exactly walking out. It's more of a sashay!"

[[folder:Video Games]]
* The {{Bishonen}} appearance of the [[VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft Blood Elf]] male {{Player Character}}s is [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] and used for humour by turning them into this through some of their /silly (joke dialogue) emotes. A notable one would be them saying "Don't you wish your girlfriend was hot like me?". The fact they are voiced by Cam Clarke, who is openly gay, only helped.
** [[http://www.wowpedia.org/Budd Budd Nedreck]] is, in ''Cataclysm'' at least, a wonderful merger of this and a CloudCuckoolander.
** Kel'thuzad, an undead lich, is incredibly...prissy and practically shouts his love for Arthas from the roofs in the novel. He is fanatically loyal in the game, as well. Worth noting, his attraction to Arthas increases when Arthas kills him, for some odd reason.
* Ash Crimson from ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'' is considered one of these due to his love for nail art, flamboyant poses and generally flirtatious nature towards a few of the male characters. Although, there is the UnfortunateImplications coming from the fact that he's from [[FrenchJerk France]].
* Rasputin in ''VideoGame/WorldHeroes''. Besides his voice and mannerisms, his "Secret Garden" super attack involves him stripping to the waist, grabbing the opponent, and sinking into a field of roses, whereupon giant hearts with his face emerge from it. Yes.
* Jean Armstrong in ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyTrialsAndTribulations''. A few people even have trouble telling if he's a man or a woman, despite his facial hair and large muscular arms.
* Jolly Roger in ''[[VideoGame/BanjoKazooie Banjo-Tooie]]'', who works in Jolly's (which is implied to be a gay bar), talks in a stereotypical camp voice and offers "Seaman's Brew" on the menu. In a '''[[GettingCrapPastTheRadar kid's game.]]''. His partner appears to a {{crossdresser}} or a DragQueen. The only labelled barrel in the bar is marked "Ginger Beer" (see [[http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/6189163.stm this article]] if you don't get it).
* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}''. Kanji's ShadowArchetype is ''extremely'' Camp Gay, almost offensively so. This is understandable since it represents Kanji's inner fear of his possible sexuality, and takes on a somewhat tragic bent [[spoiler:once you realize that the shadows are partially formed by the perceptions of the 'audience' of the Midnight Channel.]] Kanji's shadow was formed as an over-the-top stereotype of gay men because that's how Kanji ([[spoiler:and the viewers]]) think gay people are.
** The webcomic artist {{Webcomic/Hiimdaisy}} turns this UpToEleven in her comic. ''"I'm Kanji Tatsumi, and I enjoy naked men. '''Ooooh yaaahhh.'''"''
* Aqua Man in ''VideoGame/MegaMan8''. His introduction involves him jumping out, spraying water in midair to make a rainbow with his name in it, and saying in a mincing voice, "I'm Aqua Man, but you can call me handsome guy!"
** Arguably, also Elec Man in ''VideoGame/MegaManPoweredUp''.
* The Magimel brothers from the ''VideoGame/ShadowHearts'' games, who always seem to [[RecurringTraveller show up whenever you visit a new town]]. One of them makes outfits for dolls, and the other sells items (and often likes to comment on the [male] main character's appearance), but only if you collect naked men trading cards to get his "creative juices" flowing.
* Florian "Bernie Crane" Cravic in ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIV''. It's more of an achievement to find ''non''-stereotypical characters in GTA than the other way around. He drops it when he gets angry.
* The very first WakeUpCallBoss of ''VideoGame/GodHand''. Flamboyantly gay, leather-clad, and ColorCodedForYourConvenience. And capable of royally pounding -your- ass too.
* Makoto from ''VideoGame/EnchantedArms'' has long hair and women's makeup and plays the role of [[ClingyJealousGirl Clingy Jealous Guy]] to popular student Toya in the game's introductory sequence.
** And if there's any doubt whether he's camp gay or just camp metrosexual, the epilogue of the game removes all doubt.
* One of Vega's winning quotes in ''VideoGame/StreetFighterII HD Remix'' is "I'm so fabulous!" Couple that with his fighting style and you get... well... yeah.
* Jann from ''VideoGame/ValkyriaChronicles''. While having to wear a male military uniform prevents him from wearing dresses, he still wears women's make-up. The gameplay mimics this too - his potentials are things like "Fancies Men" and "Pollen Allergy" and he also has a unique potential named "Largo Lover" that activates whenever he is around Largo, which gives the player a short sequence of Jann girlishly squealing with excitement. The English dub even gave him a voice that may as well be [[WesternAnimation/SouthPark Big Gay Al]].
* Gary the towel attendant and Purser Peter in the ''VideoGame/LeisureSuitLarry'' adventure games.
* Captain Cumore in ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'': He's got a ''heart-shaped codpiece''. And a heart-shaped hole in his clothes over his chest.
* Katze in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars OriginalGeneration: Eternal Frontier''. When he's not [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass beating your head in.]]
* Julius from ''VideoGame/SwordOfMana''. His outfit is almost entirely comprised of pink and purple, and he has painted nails (yes, toenails too) along with the pink eyeliner and subtle lipstick he wears. There also happens to be copious HoYay between him and fellow antagonist Dark Lord, which is not helped ''at all'' by the fact that [[ShipTease the only place on their airship for Julius to sleep is in Dark Lord's bed]].
* King Mardan from ''VideoGame/DarkChronicle'', a large purple fish with huge red lips, an effeminate voice, and a tendency to wink lovingly at you. Monica is shocked to discover he's a guy.
* Dist from ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss''. A pink-haired effeminate MadScientist that prides himself as "Dist the Rose". No one else calls him that.
* Ash, a mini boss from ''VideoGame/StreetsOfRage 3''. He wore a vest, tight pants, and high heeled boots. In the fight, he would rarely attack and if he did land a hit on you, he'd let out a girlish giggle. Ash's stance and running animations were also effeminate. Once you defeated him, he would cry out, using the same death cry sound byte as Blaze, and sit on the ground crying. Because of this, he was scrapped in the U.S. and European versions of the game and replaced with a mook with more health. Ash could be played via cheat device and he was absurdly strong.
** He is an unlockable character in the fan remake and he hasn't changed a bit. Even his super special attack magnifies his...personality by having him slap his ass and hip thrust several times, dealing massive damage to all enemies on screen all while the background is turned pink and with hearts.
* General Lionwhyte from ''VideoGame/BrutalLegend''. Also a SissyVillain. He gets bonus points because he's played by [[Music/JudasPriest Rob]] [[StraightGay Halford]]. Interestingly, though he's the leader of a [[HairMetal glam]] [[AlwaysCamp metal]] themed enemy group, he's the only one that can really be considered truly gay. His minions seem to be in it for the "chicks and booze".
* Oshare Bones from the ''VideoGame/PuyoPuyo'' series. Obsessed with fashion, and has a strong lisp in English while referring to himself using female pronouns in Japanese. He even gets the limp-wristed gesture as one of his animations in ''Puyo Pop Fever''.
* Mayakov, from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXI'' ''Wings of the Goddess'', definitely qualify. Dancer outfit, crazy verbal tick, extremely emotionnal, and let's not talk about his ''body langage''... [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Even a coworker thought he was talking about the bride's dress when he said during a mariage that he can't wait to walk down the aisle, garbed like ''this'' (''this'' refering to the tuxedo, contrary to his coworker's belief).]]
* Sendak, an old summoner from ''VideoGame/BahamutLagoon'', doesn't hestitate in showing that he has a thing for [[TheHero Byuu]], plus acts and thinks like a lovestruck woman.
* ''Franchise/DragonAge'':
** ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' has Wade, the resident UltimateBlacksmith, though his husband/partner Herren is more of a StraightGay. While it's never outright stated in-game and only confirmed due to WordOfGay, it's pretty obvious.
** Dorian Pavus, a mage companion in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' fits the bill, though he's a much more nuanced and layered example rather than just a stereotype.
* Alman from ''VideoGame/{{Solatorobo}}'' keeps hitting on Red (and {{Squick}}ing him out), wears dresses, and uses copious amounts of cosmetics. Needless to say, Red becomes rather reluctant to take quests from him ''very'' quickly and attempts to avoid social chatting when possible, sticking strictly to business.
* The iOS game ''A Gay Dragon'' features a pink male dragon named Melwin who roams the countryside in search of "pretty princes" while avoiding female dragons and [[LadyOfWar warrior princesses]]. It even features an [[AlwaysCamp interior design]] sandbox mode where you [[AnInteriorDesignerIsYou build and decorate your personal lair]].
* Marlain from VisualNovel/DreamSaviorGakuen.
* Ultima9 featured a character who talked in a ''very'' stereotypical voice and tried to imitate you as close as possible, even wearing a copy of your armor. [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment Spoony]] dubbed this fellow "The Gayvatar" (the main character is named "[[TheChosenOne The Avatar]]," it's a play on that).
* Yellow Monkey from the ''VideoGame/ApeEscape'' series of games. First appearing in ''Ape Escape 2'', his effeminate voice and mannerisms are enough to get him on this page, but his sexuality is confirmed in ''Ape Escape 3'', when, if you choose the male protagonist Kei, he will give Kei a choice between fighting him...or going out on a date. This scene was censored in the US version, but remained intact in the Japanese and UK releases.
* The local doctor Marian in ''VideoGame/StoryOfSeasons'' is the first openly gay character in the ''VideoGame/HarvestMoon'' series. He's decked in pink, wears make-up, says things are "fabulous", [[DudeLooksLikeALady could pass for a woman]], and has a boyfriend.
* ''VideoGame/TalesOfXillia2'' has a OneSceneWonder of a spoiler character who is ''definitely'' this. [[spoiler: It's a fractured dimension version of the Spirit of Light Aska who only shows up in one of Jude's Character Episodes. Most of his lines are about wanting to "tether" with Jude again with the innuendo in full force. And yes, Aska is in bird form here.]]
* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'', Crassius Curio's dialogue is written this way, with him calling the PlayerCharacter things like "dumpling", "pudding", and "sweetie pie" while referring to himself as "Uncle Crassius" to the PC. Further, he wears extravagant clothing, has written several plays, and wants to start a theater troupe. Technically, he is a [[DepravedBisexual bisexual]], as he shows this interest whether the PC is male or female, and also fits AnythingThatMoves, being interested whether the PC is human, elf, [[CatFolk Khajiit]], [[LizardFolk Argonian]], or even an [[OurOrcsAreDifferent Orc]].

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* Isaac from ''VisualNovel/ExtracurricularActivities'' is a costume designer who speaks with mannerisms like "sweetie" and "honey". He flirts with Darius all the time and even hooked up with him once.
* Luka Urushibara from ''VisualNovel/SteinsGate'' dresses in women clothing, wears a cute hairpin, looks and act quite feminine (he is also said to be the personification of femenine grace) and has a crush on Okabe.

* Quite a few characters from ''Webcomic/MyLifeInBlue'', although some of them are technically [[BiTheWay Camp Bisexuals]]. Played more seriously than usual, and [[http://mylifeinblue.comicgenesis.com/d/20021206.html occasionally subject to discussion]].
* Mark from ''Webcomic/KhaosKomix''. Suprisingly, his homophobic friend Jamie doesn't really pick on it. Also, Murfs, to some extent.
* Very Alternate Bob acts this way at first in ''[[Webcomic/BobAndGeorge Bob and George]]'', but it's just to mess with Bob Prime. He's more of a StraightGay the rest of the time (though he does have good interior design sense).
** Also, Top Man.
* Parodied in ''Webcomic/BrunoTheBandit'', when the title character thinks he has turned gay as a result of spending too much time in the company of real gay characters. He immediately turns into this stereotype (except for the lisp, which he only adopts when he's reminded of it), consulting a book called ''Being Gay for Morons'' for further details.
* Zack, And Possibly Skittles, Of ''WebComic/SkewedReality''.
* Luca from ''Webcomic/SfeerTheory'' is a subdued version of this, stemming from the society he lives in and his personality. Ironically, since he's so quiet, his campier mannerisms are even more noticeable.
* Sorane'Saniil Val'lllhar'do from ''Webcomic/{{Drowtales}}''.
* Danny from ''Webcomic/TheBoyInPinkEarmuffs'' is this. His dad disagrees with his campness, especially the fact he wears pink a lot. JJ is noticeably less camp than Danny but occasionally shows signs.
* Lampshaded and averted in ''Webcomic/MMBN7TheWorldTournament'', where ''[[DudeLooksLikeALady Viddy Narcy]]'' states that he's secure enough about his sexuality to wear whatever he wants. Sean understandably tells him that that's not something you'd want someone to question.
* Dillon of ''Webcomic/MenageA3'' was eventually given his own comic, ''Webcomic/StickyDillyBuns''. Probably because one title couldn't contain his campness. He wears the requisite open-necked shirts when not in drag (which he seems to enjoy), seemingly acts the DramaQueen at every opportunity, is committed to his career as an actor, describes himself at one point as "super ultra mega gay", and is described on the first comic's Cast page as "Gay. So gay." As Ruby, who is somewhat against her will stuck with him as her GayBestFriend, says, his gayness would be visible to the blind.
* AmbiguousGender aside, ''Webcomic/TheBedfellows''' Fatigue shows multiple traits of being a camp gay man, such as feminine mannerisms and flamboyant vocal inflections.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* Most, if not all gay characters from Webvideo/BrandonRogers behave like [[UpToEleven comically exaggerated]] versions of this trope. [[CampStraight Many straight characters get this treatment too]].
* Motimon from ''Abrigimon''. [[CatchPhrase Mmmmm]].
* Thayne of ''LetsPlay/AnalogControl'' is bisexual and has periodic bursts of camp. His natural speaking voice is pretty flamboyant as well.
* Haru in ''WebVideo/AvatarTheAbridgedSeries''.
* Creator/ChrisCrocker, people!
* Also, Antoine "Bed Intruder" Dodson [[note]]Though he later joined the ''[[MalcolmXerox Black Hebrew Israelite]]'' sect, [[ArmouredClosetGay declared]] [[HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday himself "straight"]] and even fathered a child with a woman[[/note]].
* The narrator of the [[MemeticMutation memetic]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4r7wHMg5Yjg honey badger don't care]] WildlifeCommentarySpoof.
* Cheeks from ''[[http://husbandstheseries.com/video/ Husbands]]'' is this to a T and he knows it, lampshading that he takes the "female" role in his relationship with StraightGay, Brady. During their AccidentalMarriage he was wearing part of a bride's outfit... and hot pants.
* The Custodes from ''WebAnimation/IfTheEmperorHadATextToSpeechDevice'' skirt the edge between this and MachoCamp. They make rather... obvious remarks about their attraction to the Emperor (and each other), criticize the Inquisition's sense of fashion and jump on the scene and pose. Fandom nicknamed them Fabulous Custodes.
-->''My loincloth is '''bursting''' with anticipation!''
* ''Literature/MaleRising'' has the clever, effeminate, and [[ManlyGay kick-ass]] socialite [[spoiler: Theodore Roosevelt]]. He may dress up as Empress Eugenie, but he will kick your ass '''hard''' and give you a lecture on [[spoiler: the Great War]] at the same time if you insult him for it.
* [[http://www.weebls-stuff.com/toons/Parsley+Boobs+ep1/ Minky Steve]] [[ViewerGenderConfusion may]] be this.
* Kidnapper-kun from ''WebAnimation/NekoSugarGirls'' has a lisp and is quite flamboyant. He has a crush on Hitoshi and, as his nickname implies, tried to kidnap him.
* Franklin from "WebAnimation/NeuroticallyYours". "Does this thong come in a men's?"
* Donut from ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'' slowly turned into this throughout the series. In his first apparance, he was just a stupid red guy to counter the blue team's stupid guy (Caboose). Upon acquiring the pink armor, he declared it to be "lightish red" to preserve his masculinity, but on season two, he seemed to slowly accept the armor was pink. By season three though, he was thoroughly into this trope, adopting several gay mannerisms, and the phrase "lightish red" never came out of his mouth again.
* The titular character of the Website/YouTube ''WebVideo/SassyGayFriend'' videos. He even wears his scarf when otherwise naked in the garden of Eden.
* Seeing as {{Series/UNHhhh}} is hosted by Creator/TrixieMattel and {{Creator/Katya}}, the entire ''show'' is flaming.
* Many examples in ''Roleplay/SurvivalOfTheFittest'', such as Andi Ayla, Andy Walker, and Peri Barclay, but a notable subversion of this trope would be Remi Pierce. Remi was actually {{Asexual}}, but played straight every gay mannerism in the book to play up a facade.
* Tanner's boyfriend in ''WebAnimation/TheMostPopularGirlsInSchool'' is very campy and effeminate.
* Cecil from Podcast/WelcomeToNightVale is a positive example in that he's gay and somewhat "fem", but not in such a way that it dominates his character. It helps that he is created and voiced by queer people.
** He is much more obvious about it when he gushes about Carlos the Scientist whom the entire city agrees is a very beautiful man. [[spoiler: Carlos eventually becomes his boyfriend and later his husband.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eyqUj3PGHv4 The YES dance is a parody of this.]]
* ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'': Marik, in the "Leather Pants" video.
** Subverted with Pegasus. He's actually straight but wants people to ''think'' he's gay. According to WordOfGod, he constantly flirts with Kaiba [[{{Troll}} just for his amusement]].
* In some of WebVideo/SkyWilliams' videos, he portrays himself as particularly stereotypically gay. In other videos, he's admitted that he isn't normally so camp.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* The appropriately named "Gay Gary" from ''WesternAnimation/TheLifeAndTimesOfTim''.
* ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'':
** Dale's father, the gay rodeo cowboy, and the rest of his set. According to flashbacks, he didn't act like this before he came out, though, so he may have just been doing it to fit in. Dale's father is consciously camp. He lampshades it and refers to his rodeo act as "kitschy fun".
** Bill intentionally does this in one episode, emulating another Camp Gay character in an effort to better his and Luanne's position at their hair salon workplace.
* Clarence from ''WesternAnimation/CodeMonkeys'' is practically the epitome of this trope. He flies around instead of walking (leaving a trail of sparkles), wears a flamboyant light blue jumpsuit, and sings everything he says, most of which is a double entendre referring to how gay he is.
** "Double" entendre, they says. In one scene Clarence sings to himself that alone out of all the guys he has available to him, he wouldn't do Dean, his boss' big, beefy, dumb-as-a-rock son, then corrects himself: "Actually I would, 'cause that's how gay I am."
* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'': The show is very fond of this trope, probably since it's the easiest way to tell that somebody is gay, while also being a huge stereotype. They like it so much they even use a TransparentCloset.
** Trey and Matt seem to have forgotten that the StraightGay exists altogether. The more camp you behave, the happier you'll be; otherwise you've got problems that are a lot worse than just being in the closet. In "Cartman Sucks", a suppressed boy called Bradley almost throws himself off a bridge, while the Camp Gay/Camp Straight Pastor Phillips is perfectly happy, even if he ''is'' in complete denial. Oh, and Mr Garrison, who's always telling people he's gay, but isn't all that camp.
--> '''Chef:''' Children, there's a big difference between being gay and being Mr Garrison.
** Big Gay Al is a flamboyant gay stereotype. He has eyelashes, wears a pink shirt, and even has the word "Gay" in his name. Lampshaded in the episode "Cripple Fight".
-->'''Scoutmaster:''' It's come to our attention that you're... gay.
-->'''Big Gay Al:''' [[DeadpanSnarker Oh, stop the presses!]] [[CaptainObvious Did you figure that out all by yourself, silly buns?]]
* ''WesternAnimation/TimeSquad'':
** The Larry 3000. At the beginning of the series he was AmbiguouslyGay: he was overly sensitive, enjoyed traditionally feminine tasks such as cooking and sewing, and had a love for women's fashion, but nothing too obvious. But later in season two the ambiguity flies out the window and Larry is crushing hard on his macho [[TimePolice time cop]] partner Tuddrussel.
** There was also Merriweather Lewis, who was the [[SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan Sensitive Guy to William Clark's Manly Man]].
* Various extras in ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''
** Brian's cousin Jasper from Los Angeles and Stewie's drama teacher.
** In one episode, Peter's injected with a "gay gene" and turns into one for the remainder of the episode. [[StatusQuoIsGod It wore off a couple minutes before the episode ended]].
* Greg Corbin and Terry Bates in ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad''.
* ''WesternAnimation/QueerDuck'', though obviously an AffectionateParody, is an [[RefugeInAudacity nonstop parade]] of {{Retraux}} 1960s/1970s Camp Gay stereotypes.
* Ever seen the Disney anti-Nazi piece "Disney/DerFuehrersFace"? He's got just a short appearance, but the flute player in the Nazi marching band is as camp as one can be while wearing a Nazi uniform and a helmet. (That character was probably a parody of Herman Goerring.)
* An early example: Random unnamed pirate in an Creator/UbIwerks ''Sinbad the Sailor'' cartoon. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0r2rBcAQuuc See here]].
* Xandir P. Wiffelbottom from ''WesternAnimation/DrawnTogether'' starts out as AmbiguouslyGay, but comes out of the closet by the third episode and is shown to be quite ecstatic about his sexuality and attraction to men for the remainder of the series.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'' has [[HelloSailor Shore Leave]], a flamboyant, lisping, sassy gay member of a GI-Joe CaptainErsatz who [[AscendedExtra gained prominence]] in the fourth season. He manages to be a great character despite being a ridiculous gay stereotype because 1. his total lack of shame and commitment to his gay shtick CrossesTheLineTwice, and 2. he's a competent, badass secret agent anyway. The Alchemist zigzags between Camp Gay and StraightGay.
* Subverted in one episode of ''TheSimpsons'' had the character John who was gay and the campiest person ever (and in fact was played by John Waters), but he was not a Camp Gay. However, it was played straight with the gay steel mill.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'', when he has to seduce a man in a HoneyTrap mission, dresses and acts in a manner that would be an embarrassment at a Gay Pride Parade - and his target, a very StraightGay, doesn't want anything to do with him. Even other camp gay guys make fun of him.
-->'''Ramon:''' You are so not my type. ''(walks away)''\\
'''Archer:''' Hey! I am everybody's type!\\
'''Rudy:''' Please. You are entirely too gay.\\
'''Archer:''' No I'm not!\\
'''Charles:''' Ohmygod, you like, sneeze glitter.\\
'''Rudy:''' Thank you!
* ''WesternAnimation/TheBoondocks'': Gangstaliciois, a celebrity rapper whom main character Riley idolizes, is revealed in his second appearance to be a camp gay as he was revealed to have had an ex boyfriend although the "camp" wasn't as obvious in terms of his appearance as he mostly wore rapper attire. However his attire is mostly colored pink and during a talk show, he introduced a fashion lineup that included pink bulletproof vests, a skirt with the backside of it cut out, and pearl necklaces. He even sent Riley a package of free gear that looked a lot like women's clothing. He even did a song called "homies over hoes", which was filled with so much HomoeroticSubtext that even some of the characters in universe took notice.
* The titular character of ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'' is a {{Hermaphrodite}} (referred to as "she") in the original French dub, but due to a mistake in the English dubbing for the first ten episodes, she was [[ShesAManInJapan re-written as male]] (though this was corrected after [[DubInducedPlothole the 11th episode]]. This led to a lot of HoYay, and her lisp and feminine behavior certainly didn't help.
