When a gay person has a crush on, or is in love with, a straight person.
Examples of "Straight Crushes" in movies include: in Silkwood, Dolly (played by Cher) is in love with Karen (Meryl Streep); and in the movie Threesome when Josh Charles' gay character is infatuated with Stephen Baldwin's straight character. It could be argued very strongly that Plato (Sal Mineo) has an intense straight crush on Jim (James Dean) in Rebel Without a Cause.
