->'''Played By''': Bobby Cannavale

A disgraced nightclub owner and the leader of the Gays in the final season of the show. He imports a lot of designer and synthetic drugs into the prison, and takes a liking to Miguel Alvarez, protecting him from the rest of the Latinos.

* AgentPeacock
* CampGay: The dyed blonde hair, the bizarre fashion sense...everything about him is this.
* CelibateHero: Despite the fact he owns nightclubs and is involved in the drug trade, he insists that he is a celibate virgin.
* CoolestClubEver: Once again, is implied to have run successful straight clubs as well.
* TheDandy: He's very camp and proud of his appearance.
* FauxAffablyEvil: He's rather personable and witty...and also a dangerously insane manipulator. It's heavily implied that he'll take control of Oz through the drug trade.
* LeftHanging: He has a grand plan to take over Em City's drug trade and make the Gays a powerful gang, even trying to make an alliance with Chucky Pancamo, leader of the powerful Italian gang.

->''Prisoner #98H462. Convicted June 3, 1998. Posession and distribution of a controlled substance. Sentence: 8 years, up for parole in 5.''

->''"I love to take it in the ass."''

A low-level drug dealer and openly gay inmate. He is the initial leader and spokesman of the Gays.

* AffablyEvil
* BlackComedyRape: He is raped and humiliated several times by the Aryans, but shrugs it off, or at least hides his emotional trauma very well.
* ButtMonkey
* EvenEvilHasStandards: He's repulsed by rapists and tries to help catch the men who attacked Glynn's daughter.
* TheEveryman
* ShowerOfLove: Erm, well, he thought he'd get one when he was saved from Death Row. It ends horribly for him.
* StraightGay: He's not that masculine, but he's neither CampGay nor a VillainousCrossdresser, like most of his gang.

!!Jason Cramer
->'''Played By''': Robert Bogue

->''"There's only two things I know how to do. Fight and suck."''

A witty inmate incarcerated for killing and chopping up his boyfriend. Partakes in the fighting tournament in Season 3 and is one of the few gay inmates taken seriously by the other prisoners.

* {{Badass}}
** BadassGay
* DeadpanSnarker
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: He becomes enraged when he thinks the Latinos are going to attack his lover. Of course O'Reily said it so it wasn't true.
* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler: Though it seems fairly obvious he committed the crime he was incarcerated for--as he'd tried to ship his dead boyfriend's body parts in the mail--he ends up being acquitted because of how erroneously his case was handled. The lead investigator in the case fabricated forensic evidence because he had known the case against Jason wasn't strong enough, and the jury in Jason's first trial convicted him after a homophobic juror went on a tirade and bullied his fellow jurors into voting guilty.]]
* LeatherMan: Semi-example. He wears a black leather biker jacket several times, and is the most masculine and aggressive of the gay inmates, but doesn't show other biker and BDSM tendencies that most leathermen show.
* ManlyGay
