The traditional stereotypical image of a gay man. He's flamboyantly effeminate in his dress, speech, mannerisms, and interests. He wears tight 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. Sometimes he wears extremely noticeable jewelry. 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 held out in a limp-wristed gesture.
There's nothing ambiguous about THIS gay. Extreme cases will include a near-opaque slang, referring to himself and his gay friends with female pronouns, and minor to complete transvestism.
Insofar as he has a personality, it will often be vain, catty, and cowardly. Even though compared to heterosexual men he will rarely be shown having sex he talks about it every second of the day, when he isn't talking about clothes, the latest celebrity breakdown, or the celebrity's puppy. The stereotype still survives because for some fraction of the gay male population, this is in fact Truth in Television.
As such, this fact is greatly exaggerated by media, and this trope is made out to be more prevalent than it actually is. This can result in Unfortunate Implications , and can lead to the belief that all gay men share these traits.
Unlike Straight Gay characters, Camp Gays usually show up on television as caricatures or one-off jokes see Monty Python's Flying Circus for a few good examples due to the fact that they're still seen as Acceptable Targets , even among other gays. Some professions are Always Camp , but not necessarily gay.
Someone who's like this but nonetheless insists that he's not actually gay may be occupying a Transparent Closet , or he may actually be a Camp Straight. It has been suggested that the ultimate ancestor of the Camp Gay was Oscar Wilde , 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 -- burly backwoodsman-styled Walt Whitman -- had instead become the model for the stereotype. The Camp Gay can be seen as the Spear Counterpart to the Butch Lesbian stereotype in embracing the conventional characteristics of the opposite sex. Contrast with Straight Gay , with which it usually actually overlapped before half a century ago.
Compare to Macho Camp. Often overlaps with Queer People Are Funny. Burt: You're gay. And you're not like Rock Hudson-gay , you're really gay. You sing like Diana Ross, and you dress like you own a magic chocolate factory -- Kurt: Okay, why are you being so mean to me?
Burt: --And what is wrong with any of that? Biggles : "Ginger, are you a poof? Biggles : "Thank God for that! Stout Fellow! Salt of the Earth! Backbone of England!

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'. Anger, denial, bargaining, depression and acceptance. Well, back up, because here comes my acceptance speech.

Camp Camp – Gay summer camp for adults – All-inclusive GLBT vacation
Camp is an aesthetic style and sensibility that regards something as appealing because of its bad taste and ironic value. Camp can also be a social practice. For many it is considered a style and performance identity for several types of entertainment including film, cabaret, and pantomime. Where high art necessarily incorporates beauty and value, camp necessarily needs to be lively, audacious and dynamic. Camp art is related to—and often confused with— kitsch , and things with camp appeal may also be described as "cheesy".
When the usage appeared in , it denoted "ostentatious, exaggerated, affected, theatrical", or " effeminate " behavior, and by the middle of the s, camp was defined by the college edition of Webster's New World Dictionary as "banality, mediocrity, artifice, [and] ostentation Camp was a part of the anti-academic defense of popular culture in the s and gained popularity in the s with the widespread adoption of postmodern views on art and culture.
In , in a letter produced in evidence at his examination before a magistrate at Bow-street , London , on suspicion of then-illegal homosexual acts, crossdresser Frederick Park referred to his "campish undertakings"; but the letter does not make clear what these were. So as a noun, 'camp' behavior, mannerisms, et cetera. According to the dictionary, this sense is "etymologically obscure". Camp in this sense has been suggested to have possibly derived from the French term se camper , meaning "to pose in an exaggerated fashion".
The rise of post-modernism made camp a common perspective on aesthetics, which was not identified with any specific group. The attitude was originally a distinctive factor in pre- Stonewall gay male communities, where it was the dominant cultural pattern. It originated from the acceptance of gayness as effeminacy. With swish featuring extensive use of superlatives, and drag being exaggerated female impersonation, camp became extended to all things "over the top", including women posing as female impersonators faux queens , as in the exaggerated Hollywood version of Carmen Miranda.
It was this version of the concept that was adopted by literary and art critics and became a part of the conceptual array of s culture. Moe Meyer still defines camp as "queer parody". Much of the cult following of camp today grew rapidly during the transition from black-and-white to color television in the early s.
Network programming during that time sought entertainment content that would display the new medium with the use of bright colors and high stylization. The concept of the comicbook superhero an individual in a highly stylized, outlandish and possibly impractical costume avenging otherwise serious matters such as murder could be interpreted as camp.
However, since it was aimed initially at children, it is camp only in a secondary perspective. It was not until the s television version of Batman one of the more famous examples of camp in popular culture, — that the link was made explicit, with the inherent ridiculousness of the concept exposed as a vehicle for comedy.
The villains of series as divergent as Batman and The Mod Squad — were costumed as to take advantage of new colors and changing fashion styles, in ways that took advantage of camp. Ironically, even Batman fell victim to contemporaneous parodies, with the release of Captain Nice and Mr. Terrific , which layered extra camp onto the already overladen superhero concept. The stylized content of Batman may have possibly jump-started television campiness, to circumvent the strict censorship of comics at this time after Dr.
Fredric Wertham 's essay Seduction of the Innocent which led to the comics' industry-sponsored Comics Code , as the Batman comic books were very dark and noirish until the s and from the s onwards. Some of these series were developed 'tongue-in-cheek' by their producers. TV soap operas, especially those that air in primetime, are often considered camp.
The over-the-top excess of Dallas — and Dynasty — were popular in the s. The Channel 4 series Eurotrash — was a television programme produced using the inherent ridiculousness of its subject matter for comedic effect, often using camp dubbing in regional accents and overexaggerated stereotypical characterizations such as an aristocratic artist based on Brian Sewell to puncture the interviewees' pretence of seriousness.
However, an obituary to Lolo Ferrari was given straight dubbing as a mark of respect at odds with its irreverence. However, the subject matter would have offended many British viewers and fallen foul of OFCOM if it was done with any seriousness. Again, this is an example of doing a programme in a camp manner to get around the likelihood of censorship.
Mentos television commercials during the s developed a cult following due to their camp " Eurotrash " humor. In the Season 8 episode " Homer's Phobia " of the American animated comedy series The Simpsons , gay secondary character John played by gay director John Waters defines to Homer Simpson the meaning of the word camp to be "tragically ludicrous", or "ludicrously tragic": Homer gives a misinterpreted example of camp as "when a clown dies".
Examples include a s sport that attempted to combine ballet with skiing ski ballet , the Harlem Globetrotters holding a televised exhibition game at the notorious Attica State Prison in upstate New York, small-time regional professional wrestling and roller derby. Films such as Valley of the Dolls , Mommie Dearest , Showgirls , and Burlesque gained camp status primarily due to the filmmakers' attempting to produce a serious film that wound up unintentionally comedic.
Award-winning actresses, like Patty Duke in Valley of the Dolls and Faye Dunaway in Mommie Dearest , gave such over-the-top performances that the films became camp classics, especially attracting fanfare from gay, male audiences. The second part of the movie Superman set in fictional Metropolis takes on a campy screwball tone after the seriousness of the origin story.
Educational and industrial films form an entire subgenre of camp films, with the most famous being the much-spoofed s Duck and Cover film, in which an anthropomorphic, cartoon turtle explains how one can survive a nuclear attack by hiding under a school desk. Its British counterpart Protect and Survive could be seen as kitsch , even though it is very chilling to watch it was never shown on grounds of national security and would only be broadcast if an attack was deemed likely within 72 hours.
Charley's voice is performed by the camp surrealist comedian and Radio DJ Kenny Everett , who came from an advertising background as a copywriter. Quentin Tarantino 's black comedy crime film Pulp Fiction has also fallen into this category, with film critic Nicholas Christopher calling it "more gangland Camp than neo-noir".
In British cinema the archetypal camp film cult is the outrageous long-running, film Carry On series — Preaching to the Perverted , written and directed by Stuart Urban , broke out of traditional British comedy style to portray the fetish and BDSM scene under assault from Christian crusaders and the authorities.
It portrayed both the fetish scene and the Establishment in a cartoon, stylized visual manner. Lambasted by most traditional critics, lauded by gay, music and fashion press, it went on to build a lasting cult reputation. Movie versions of camp TV shows in recent years have made the camp nature of these shows a running gag throughout the films.
In Grizzly Man , a documentary by Werner Herzog, the protagonist, Timothy Treadwell, describes the wild life of bears with camp mannerisms. Their feature film Satan, Hold My Hand features many elements recognized in camp pictures. American singer and actress Cher is often called the "Queen of Camp" because of her outrageous fashion and live performances.
Dusty Springfield is a camp icon. Lady Gaga , a contemporary exemplar of camp, uses musical expression and the body motions of dance to make social commentary on pop culture, as in the Judas video. Her clothes, makeup, and accessories, created by high-end fashion designers, are integral to the narrative structure of her performances. The words "camp" and " kitsch " are often used interchangeably; both may relate to art, literature, music, or any object that carries an aesthetic value.
However, "kitsch" refers specifically to the work itself, whereas "camp" is a mode of performance. Thus, a person may consume kitsch intentionally or unintentionally. Camp, as Susan Sontag observed, is always a way of consuming or performing culture "in quotation marks". Sontag also distinguishes between "naive" and "deliberate" camp,  , and examines Christopher Isherwood's distinction between low camp, which he associated with cross-dressing practices and drag performances, and high camp, which he considered as part of a cultural heritage that included "the whole emotional basis of the Ballet, for example, and of course of Baroque art".
Thomas Hine identified — as the campiest period in modern US history. The term has been in common use for many decades. Gay comedian Kenneth Williams wrote in a diary entry for 1 January "Went to Singapore with Stan—very camp evening, was followed, but tatty types so didn't bother to make overtures. The Taliban   book shows a campy esthetics, quite close to the gay movement in California or a Peter Greenaway film. Kosky's use of camp is also effectively employed to satirize the pretensions, manners, and cultural vacuity of Australia's suburban middle class , which is suggestive of the style of Dame Edna Everage.
For example, in The Lost Echo Kosky employs a chorus of high school girls and boys: one girl in the chorus takes leave from the goddess Diana, and begins to rehearse a dance routine, muttering to herself in a broad Australian accent, "Mum says I have to practice if I want to be on Australian Idol.
Since , the Eurovision Song Contest , an annually televised competition of song performers from different countries, has shown an increased element of camp—since the contest has shown an increasing attraction within the gay communities—in their stage performances, especially during the televised finale, which is screened live across Europe. As it is a visual show, many Eurovision performances attempt to attract the attention of the voters through means other than the music, which sometimes leads to bizarre onstage gimmicks, and what some critics have called "the Eurovision kitsch drive", with almost cartoonish novelty acts performing.
The first post-World War II use of the word in print, marginally mentioned in the Sontag essay, may be Christopher Isherwood 's novel The World in the Evening , where he comments: "You can't camp about something you don't take seriously.
You're not making fun of it; you're making fun out of it. You're expressing what's basically serious to you in terms of fun and artifice and elegance. Examples cited by Sontag included Tiffany lamps , the drawings of Aubrey Beardsley , Tchaikovsky's ballet Swan Lake , and Japanese science fiction films such as Rodan , and The Mysterians of the s.
In Mark Booth's book Camp he defines camp as "to present oneself as being committed to the marginal with a commitment greater than the marginal merits". He carefully discerns the distinction between genuine camp, and camp fads and fancies , things that are not intrinsically camp, but display artificiality, stylization, theatricality, naivety, sexual ambiguity, tackiness, poor taste, stylishness, or portray camp people, and thus appeal to them. He considers Sontag's definition problematical because it lacks this distinction.
According to the sociologist Andrew Ross , camp engages in a redefinition of cultural meaning through a juxtaposition of an outmoded past alongside that which is technologically, stylistically, and sartorially contemporary. Often characterized by the reappropriation of a "throwaway Pop aesthetic", camp works to intermingle the categories of "high" and "low" culture.
As opposed to kitsch, camp reappropriates culture in an ironic fashion, whereas kitsch is indelibly sincere. Additionally, kitsch may be seen as a quality of an object, while camp, "tends to refer to a subjective process". In Ross's analysis, camp aesthetics became the site of personal liberation from the stranglehold of the corporate, capitalist state.
Camp liberates objects from the landfills of history and reinvokes them with a new charisma. In doing so camp creates an economy separate from that of the state. In Ross's words, camp "is the re-creation of surplus value from forgotten forms of labor". Ross suggests that camp often faces criticism from other political and aesthetic perspectives. For example, the most obvious argument is that camp is just an excuse for poor quality work and allows the tacky and vulgar to be recognized as valid art.
In doing so, camp celebrates the trivial and superficial and form over content. The power of the camp object may be found in its ability to induce this reaction. In a sense objects that fill their beholders with disgust fulfill Sontag's definition of the ultimate camp statement, "it's good because it's awful. In an attempt to "present a challenge to the mechanisms of control and containment that operate in the name of good taste", the camp aesthetic has been appropriated by artists.
