For those of you that don’t know, gaydar is a real talent which gives a person the innate ability to be able to tell if a man is gay at a glance. Because of my advanced age, my gaydar is finely tuned and very rarely wrong. I have tried to use this talent for good by giving all of my gay customers a “my people’s discount” at one of my retail gigs when there was a legitimate discount others might be unfamiliar with. I was ringing up a sale for one of my people and finished up by saying I had given him a “my peoples discount”. He looked at me with a straight face and asked me what I meant. I said: “Look at me – I’m not Black. What else might we have in common”. He leaned across the counter and said quietly: “What if I told you I wasn’t gay?” I also leaned over the counter and told him under my breath: “I’d say you were lying to me”.
