GAWKER.COM asks: Like a pride of lions or murder of crows, what does one call a group of gays or lesbians? What should be the collective noun for a group of Gays? a gaggle of gays . . . a pride of lesbians . . . a triumph of trannies? . . . bears already exist in a sleuth.
Comments included: a bucket of bottoms; Japanese drag queens travel in frocks; grapes; a chattering of chelseas; a coterie of queers; a flotilla of flamers; a GAYgle; a queerie; a gaga of gays; a party!; A cantankerous Colloquy of Carpet-Munchers manhandled by flighty Fisting of Faeries; a PRIDE; a snatch of lesbians and a faggle of gays; a flock of seagulls.
The comment I agree with is:
How about a "group"?
Would this be offensive if we were trying to find a word to describe a group of black people?
What's your take on this?
