A to Z Challenge: Camp Gay

This year, I am once again taking part in the April adventure that is the Blogging from A to Z Challenge. For those unfamiliar with the concept, it's basically about 26 posts (we don't post Sundays), preferably on a theme, blogging our way through the alphabet from A to Z. My theme this year is all about TV Tropes, celebrating random tropes with some sort of weird, odd, unusual, controversial, or taboo element that appeals to my warped sense of literary adventure.

Continuing the theme, we have Camp Gay (check out the page for a complete definition, but your first guess is probably pretty close to the mark). After a quick perusal of the Literature examples provided, I've gotta go with:

"The Dresden Files: 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."
