The innocuous, straight-seeming gay friend that you can introduce to homophobic people. A 'starter' gay.
Ken is the perfect gateway gay to bring over for Thanksgiving - he can bro out with my homophobic grandfather over football and car engines but he'll still make sure to mention that he's gay near the end of the evening. Can't wait for that moment.

Your gateway band is the band you first listened to which completely opened up your world of music.

The band which was the beginning of you developing a decent taste in music.

Indie kids often use it to describe the first indie band they got into. But this term can apply to particular genre of music.
Guy-who-only-listens-to-commercial-rock: *listening to Nickelback*
Me: *hands him a bright eyes cd* Put down that rubbish, listen to this, and enjoy.
Guy-who-only-listens-to-commercial-rock: *listens to Bright Eyes* OMG, this is amazing! *stomps on Nickelback*

He then turns into either a pretentious indie kid, or just develops a decent taste in music. Yay

Bright Eyes was his gateway band.

Amy "NO! It isn't just a cat, it's a gateway cat. You can't have just one. Why don't you get a rabbit instead?"
