It’s been said you can’t judge a book by its cover, but in our gay world there is this crazy little thing called ‘Gaydar’.
The idea of ‘Gaydar’ is that we gay people are highly accurate at detecting other gay people.
Hmmm, is it that easy? Can you look at someone and know if they are gay, bisexual, straight, pansexual… and so on?
I’m not too sure. I’ve always found it a lot harder to spot a lesbian. Some, women find it easier to hide their sexual orientation. Some do not fit those classy stereotypes the world has about lesbians – a) short hair, b) flat shoes and c) practical clothing.
The fact is, just like straight people, LGBT people come in all types. The only way to know anyone’s sexuality for sure is to ask.
And yes, that can be an intimidating task, but as long as you’re respectful and do it with a kind heart you’ll know for sure.
