What are the "Gay Cars" in your city?

45 posts in this topic

I dislike stereotypes, but the Houston gay boys' car choices have inspired the topic.

Around Houston, BMW 3 Series and 5 Series are associated with the epicenter of car gayness... if there is such a thing. Five to ten years ago, it was Mercedes.

Among our many BMW-loving friends, my partner and I are considered out-of-touch and "a little rough around the edges"" with a Subaru and a GMC in our garage.

Volkswagen Jettas are hands down the choice of all the gay people I know and see. If they don't have one, don't worry, because they're in the process of hunting one down.

I don't really think there is a specific 'gay car' here.

My gay roomie drives a Plymouth Breeze complete with white hubcaps and purple badges, which he calls completely gay. But that's just because we're all broke ass college kids and the car was given to him.

Oh wait, it's probably VW or Mini...

His gay friend down the hall drives a VW and thinks it's god on wheels and both he and another gay friend of his (The one I enjoy watching project runway with) both have an afinity for Minis.

In fact, now that I think about it, my roomie LOVES the new GLI (So do I) so it must be VW.

lesbians still like their subarus though

There's a pair a few blocks away that drive an LL Bean edition. It has plenty of space for their dog.

Nobody has mentioned the one that for me is most obvious... Miata!

Around here, Miata is more for middle aged housewives than anyone else.

Older ones, yeah, not the newer ones. Nobody buys those.

I think there must be a high percentage of gay folk who like black as a color for their vehicles. Black Jettas, black Dodge Ram 4X4 pickups... I dunno, I had a black '83 S-10, and I swore I wouldn't buy another black vehicle, so hard to keep clean.

I think lesbians who have remained loyal to the domestics like HHRs and PT Cruisers. Subaru has a long history of contributing to the gay community.

I would like to see some kind of sales data regarding this subject.

Around here Civics and Jetta <previous gen> are the gay man's pace car. Jetta lovers seem to be migrating to Rabbits though.

Then there is the ubiquitous 3-series that every 20 year old anger-twink aspires to. And they'll tell you it has the best V-6 around....but they don't know why.

Angertwink (noun):

A young urban gay male who goes through his life very angry because:

1) The rest of the gay world does not recognize his incredible hotness.

2) The rest of the gay world is not incredibly hot, like he is.

Identifying characteristics: Angertwinks can often be spotted wearing fauxhawks, popped collars, and expressions of disgust.

Let's see, I'm strait and a huge fan of Both Miata's and Mini's, and I don't know of any gay people that drive either. I like poetry also, though so my opinion may not count.

Around here in the Lamda car club it seems to be big old domestics with lots of Chrome from the 50's or 60's.

Newer cars seem to be all domestic, usually PT Cruiser or HHR for lesbians and large Buick/Cadillac type vehicles for males. For whatever reason the gay population of Columbus Ohio seems to be really, really domestic loyal.

Actually, now that JPgolden got rid of the civic SI and got a truck, I don't know of any gay males that drive imports. Oh, yeah, wait, golden's partner drives a subie.

I've heard that in some areas Subaru wagons are a lesbian status thing, but Outbacks are a very mainstream wagon around here (Colorado has long been a prime Audi and Subaru market).... of the only two people that I know who are openly gay--one drives a Caddy SLS and the other a Mitsu Eclipse..(he's got to be a rarity here--a gay Indian software engineer). I also used to work with a 'Lesbyterian' who was a very butch evangelical Xtian lesbian from Colorado Springs who drove a macho Dodge Ram crew cab to fit in down there..(Dodge Rams being a suburban Republican fundie xtian status symbol).
