"Foppish" might mean "fruity" (or, better, "characteristic of a formal, effeminate man") but it speaks only to the outward behavior of someone, not to their orientation. David Hyde Pierce in most of his roles (incl. Frasier's brother in Frasier) is foppish, but he's not a homosexual (and neither is Frasier's brother).

An effeminate man with overtones of homosexuality.
An example of foppish would be Val Kilmer in Top Gun. Or Tombstone. Hell, Val Kilmer in almost every movie he ever made.
