Is This Flier Asking Straight Men On Gay Play Date A Joke?


Hot on the heels the a case of a straight man offended by being called gay comes this headsratcher of a snap from a JMG reader in Kentucky. As you may see, the "Rainbow Bus Club" seeks straight men who want to "pretend to be gay for an hour or so."

It's unclear if this is some kind of hoax or an actual thing that exists, but it is definitely something.

  3. It's a Craigslist ad.

  4. That's kind of funny. It looks more like an ad that belongs on Craigslist! "Serious inquiries only. Must include face pic.". Haha!

  6. Well, there is a club now, eh? I guess the 3 drink minimum is no longer a requirement.

  7. "Meet in back"

    They misspelled "meat".

  8. Is the same thing (and with the same outcome) that straight men do when they go to strip clubs and pretend that some hot chick with big hooters is interested in them for an hour?

  9. So how does one "talk gay" or "dress gay"? Clearly flirting with other men is gay, but exactly what do they think they're going to do?

  13. It I were in Kentucky, I'd go. Just to, uh, watch.

  14. The picture is from an old poster advertising Bear Weekend in Provincetown, MA.

    I recognize two Davids in the ad, the ginger David on the right, from NYC and the hispanic David to his left, also from NYC who passed away in 2006.

  15. How the hell does one dress gay? My homo friends cover the entire spectrum from "fashionista" to "can't pick out his own clothes in the morning."

  16. Is this a club for "curious/closeted" men to explore their feelings?

  17. @EDD Plaid is gay? Has that been my problem all these years? I don't wear plaid. I must be giving out the wrong signal 'cause I just look like any average guy. (I need to start wearing more pastels.)

    File this under 'Straight people are weird.'

  18. We have all met "straight" men who have no problem "acting" gay as soon as the lights go out...

  19. Do they ride around in a bus?

  20. This doesn't originate from a JMG reader. It just ended up there and now here. You guys are kind of late on this one. Oh well...

  21. @Paul: I dunno...I have quite a few straight friends and they all talk like that. It's some sort of vaguely hipster (but they actually aren't being pretentiously counter-culture), youth thing. "That is amazballs with a side of awesome sauce." It's sort of the current version of Buffyspeak.

  22. This is a great opportunity for "Straits" who may have doubts, but are not sure, to have a "Try it; You might like it" experience.
