Which Type of Gay Guy is Right for Me?

Everyone stereotypes, including gay men. Gay guys are immediately put into one of several categories by other gay men, typically based on physical appearance, style of dress, and mannerisms. Let's dig into the types. First up we have twinks, the smooth young gay guys that often act the most stereotypically gay. They have little to no body hair and are always skinny, often with no musculature. The ideal twink is a college boy but up to 30 can still qualify you.

Bears are almost the exact opposite. They're big, burly, hairy dudes that most often have facial hair. Sometimes they're outright fat dudes but usually they're just girthy, thick men and are often thought of as manly. Bears are also typically older guys. Gay jocks are fairly rare since if they're gay they are often closeted to avoid the homophobia that pervades sports. Because of that it's often hard to tell a gay jock until he announces himself, making them elusive gay guys that will sometimes choose to stay closeted or only reveals their homosexuality to a small group of friends.

Circuit boys are a tiny subset of the gay culture that mostly exist to go to dance parties, get fucked up on party drugs, and have sex with other gay guys at those parties. They tend to be smooth, muscular, and sexy as hell although you rarely see them nowadays since most of the gay culture has moved past that particular party style. Gay listers, also known as power gays, are the guys that work in power industries and live lives we can all be jealous of. Think of gay men in entertainment that seem so well-coiffed, so put together, and so powerful. Think of the gay men that are often depicted on TV shows as being successful, smart, happy, and ready to clean up any neighborhood they move into. Those gay guys are the gay listers and they are often a bit uppity and difficult to be around but if you can get into that circle you don't want to pass it up because those guys know how to have fun!

Everyone knows the gay guy type known as the show queen. These are the flamboyant, over the top gays that love musical theater, oversize gestures, and a limp wrist. You know they're gay the moment you lay eyes on them. Art fags are generally unbearably pretentious gay guys that delve deep into specific annoying fashion, art appreciation, the pursuit of art, etc, to avoid any connections to themselves and their painful realities. Their uppity air is generally unbearable and unless you're an art fag you'll likely find it impossible to spend more than a few minutes around one of these gay guys. Drag queens are gay guys that need no explanation. They dress in the most garish, overly feminine outfits and wigs they can find and do their makeup to the nines. They entertain straights and gays alike and they love the attention. Don't be afraid to give it to them!
