    Is Lafayatte the ideal gay man? He's confident, built, tough and in touch with the dichotic nature that being a gay male can entail. Does anyone else think that Lafayette is a trope that more gay men can look to as a model for an enlightened gay masculinity that acknowledges our masculine selves without having to mimic an oppressor style of being i.e. "straight-acting" or passing?

    Not all gays should become part-time drug-dealers and hookers.

    That said, I love the character and his "this is who I am, don't mess with me" attitude, his love for his family and his courage.

    Lafayette is just fucking awesome. I kind of like seeing Jesus throwing him off guard though. The unexpected shyness and vulnerability add yet another layer to one of the most kick-ass characters ever.

    I also forgot to mention that I also like how he is a Mix of both masculinity and femininity, and not just one or the other. icon_biggrin.gif

    Nothing like a healthy dose of truth, humor and good old fashioned ass kicking to set someone straight.

    I love what Lafayette embodies: being confident in who you are, whatever that may be. Another gay character I find interesting is Omar Little from the Wire.
