Earlier today a member of Art of Manliness (AoM) posted a link to the page about AoM. The page lists tropes that come up in various articles and discussions on AoM. You can see the AoM trope list here:

While looking through the list of AoM tropes, there was one called "Masculinity Tropes." It seemed awfully general to me, so I drilled down to see what was contained in that category. Surprisingly, I found "Manly Gay" listed:

Sitting on the opposite end of the spectrum from Camp Gay, Manly Gay is when a homosexual male character is shown not only in lacking Camp or feminine traits, but kept going in the opposite direction and into the realm of pure masculinity.

Below the entry on Manly Gay were listed examples from a variety or media and arts. Under the Film category, Brokeback Mountain is listed. You can see the Brokeback Mountain page here:
