Gaylord Ravenal is one of the main characters in the musical "Show Boat" (based on the novel of the same name; filmed multiple times, most notably in 1951 with Howard Keel in the role of Ravenal). It dates back to a time long before the word "gay" was used to mean "homosexual" - something which only became common in the second half of the 20th century.
