A Gay Question

I don't know much about gay culture.

So if anyone could give me answers to a question that's been troubling me for some time, I'd be extremely grateful.

In gay romantic films, does the lead character usually have an obligatory hetero female confidante who is extremely good looking and charming but presents no sexual entanglement problem because he's, well, gay, and she gives him sound measured advice about his gay problems when he's emotionally overstrung and consoles him and lets him sleep over when his lover is being unreasonable and she happens to be a good dancer and great to go shopping with too?

I didn't notice one in "Brokeback Mountain" but that may have been the exception to the rule.
