RoadStudy: The context of your coming out is very important in terms of your happiness. "By teasing out the effects of different contexts, this study shows that 'environment plays a huge role in determining when coming out actually makes you happier,' says Nicole Legate, a doctoral student at the University of Rochester, who led the study with Ryan and Netta Weinstein from the University of Essex in England. Among accepting groups, individuals experience significant psychological payback from being open about their sexual identity. But among hostile groups, the costs and stigma of identifying as lesbian, gay, or bisexual cancel out these benefits. In judgmental contexts, 'those who come out may actually feel no better than those who conceal,' says Legate.

  2. Oh sh*t! I scored a big 68. I am adorably gay! :-)

    Posted by: OS2Guy | Jun 21, 2011 3:13:25 PM

  3. Got a 48! Gay in Training as well, even so, still proud :P

  4. I scored a 12.. "closet warmer"?? What does that even mean? Damn I don't even know many gay men, but damn those who scored high must be an interesting bunch lol

  5. I got an 84' GAY GAY GAY. Not sure if I should be proud that I am such a cliche.

    Posted by: Chris | Jun 21, 2011 3:19:55 PM

  6. I got a 23. WTF? I went to Pride this year.

    Posted by: Erich | Jun 21, 2011 3:24:00 PM

  7. I scored in the mid-60s. Thing is, though, there's no way I could have scored any better because I'm over 40, and I couldn't care less about Gaga.

    Posted by: Jerry | Jun 21, 2011 3:31:15 PM

  8. How do you determine whether someone is gay or not without asking at least one question about whether the subject is attracted to members of the same sex?

  9. The Gay Card Quiz itself gets it's card revokes. The gay destination is PROVINCETOWN, not Providence. Trust me, I've spent ample time in both and believe me you'd choose ProvinceTOWN over Providence anyday...

    Posted by: David | Jun 21, 2011 3:42:18 PM

  10. I got 16 and probably should have gotten worse. Question 18 - "You like sports, but have trouble naming a player or team." Yes or no. I answered no because I like (more like love) sports but I have no trouble naming teams or players. I'm got sure what the "gayer" answer is.

    Posted by: Craig | Jun 21, 2011 3:46:44 PM

  11. Funny I didn't even notice the "PROVINCETOWN, not Providence" thing. I've been to both but thought Providence was pretty gay too (Brown is the gayest in the Ivy League). I should probably be deducted even more.

    Posted by: Craig | Jun 21, 2011 3:51:10 PM

  12. Seriously, no one wants to talk about Chris Crocker?

    Holy transformation, Batman! Just don't let her talk.

  13. @Tim NC, I bet you're a lot of fun at parties.

    Posted by: NaughtyLola | Jun 21, 2011 4:03:43 PM

  14. Diamond Rings has put out an excellent album, and he's really sweet (and gay). I've seen him twice and he always waits afterward and will meet with anyone who wants to, sign autographs, etc. Highly recommended.

    He signed the frigging brace I'm wearing from a car accident.

  15. So I got 8, probably the lowest. lol
    guess I've been reading the wrong blog for past couple of years!

    Posted by: mio | Jun 21, 2011 4:12:02 PM

  16. Well, it must be possible to be a fabulous queen but not a very good Gay guy. I got a 48. Stupid Quiz: how many Black Gays no anything about some damn Provicetown?

    "So I got 8, probably the lowest. lol"

    An EIGHT? EIGHT? Oh MIO myo, you're not even gay, straight or bi...hell, child, you don't even exist.

  17. I scored a 32 - also "Gay in training"; way too many stereotypes in the survey, but you won't find anyone with a stronger same sex attraction than me..

    Posted by: DAVE | Jun 21, 2011 4:20:57 PM

  18. Good Heavens I got 80! Gay Gay Gay! Do I get a discount at A and F?

    Posted by: Castlewoof | Jun 21, 2011 4:28:16 PM

  19. @Nodnarb: Yes, Crocker's transformation is quite amazing, and I suggest a ball gag or something similar to render him mute. The boy should not be allowed to speak. Also, not sure I'm sold on him as a "top"...

    Posted by: searunner | Jun 21, 2011 4:31:21 PM

  20. @Jerry - Nice try, but there was one question that mentioned Gaga and it was:

    You have at least one of these divas on your iPod: Gaga, Madonna, Britney, Cher, Kylie.

    And I scored a 72. Though I don't know why there were two questions on The Golden Girls? To identify with Blanche you need to know who Blanche is, which means you know who all the Girls are. Anyways it was fun, if meaningless. Loved that there was a Sondheim shout out, too.

    Posted by: SKOC211 | Jun 21, 2011 4:33:53 PM

  21. Acceptably gay. Nice to know.
    @Skoc211, The Golden Girls has/had Blanche Devereaux, but Blanche DuBois is form a movie called a Streetcar Named Desire starring Vivien Leigh as BDB and Marlon Brando. Just one question from the wonderful GG. (Knowing this must be a gay thing.)

    Posted by: Matt26 | Jun 21, 2011 4:49:11 PM

  22. 64. Got hung up on the Golden Girls (Sophia was the only one who ever had my heart) and I definately identified more with Stanley than Blanche.

    Posted by: Roger | Jun 21, 2011 4:57:07 PM

  23. I've known I like men since I was about five, but only got 24? What the heck is this?

    Posted by: Tobal | Jun 21, 2011 5:08:26 PM

  24. I guess I not only share Andy's birthday but his gay card score: 40, "my flame is dim." Ah, well, I'll aim to flame brighter before I'm dead.

    Posted by: Ernie | Jun 21, 2011 5:13:30 PM

  25. Seriously, is the gay card test ONLY for white gays, because i didn't know what they where talking about 70% of the time, could not relate to the questions.

    They have for divas no-singing women like gaga, madonna and cher? where is Patti, Whitney, Carey, heck put Aguilera there or something.

    Anyways i scored 24.
