I get that it is seen by some as being a lifestyle and embracing the gayness, but why do some guys make a big show of being and sounding campy?  I know a couple people like that; one is naturally campy and does it without effort.  Another actually makes a conscious effort to sound campy in public but is totally different in public.

That's where my main gripe is; why do some make it a point to act campy when they naturally aren't?

Way back when I was young (21ish) an old queen I knew explained it like this;

He said he was so overly flamboyant so it was obvious that he was gay, but he wouldn't have to actually say it.   If the didn't care, then they would be nice to him and if they did care they would tend to leave him alone.

Of course this doesn't explain all cases.

I think that's just how they are, probably due to being around women a lot, or something else. However, I do feel upset that it's just been producing stereotypes about gay people( the film tropes) in different media, which is concerning, because not all of us are like that, so.

Maybe you have it backwards and they are making a point of not acting gay or campy in some situations.  Most all people alter the way they present themselves depending on the situation and group.

For instance, language, posture, etc. will be usually more formal in a job interview as opposed to during a conversation with friends at home.  Even young children will speak one way in the classroom and differently on the playground. 

It's perfectly normal and well-studied.
