    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?

    I think sometimes people don't realize that they are offending someone.

    What if they're from another country?
    Plus, the majority of Americans still don't like us, so I'd rather not have that title anyway. icon_razz.gif

    I came up with my own name for a group of lesbians - a consensus.

    i think many miss gawker's sardonic banter as that's what its known for..

    walk up n down 9th Ave of NYC and these groups are everywhere especially for outdoor Sunday brunch on the sidewalk/piers/rooftops

    370

    when in NY i dont call them anything because they happen to be the majority on the West Side so its almost a swarm of groups, not knowing where one starts/one ends.

    i call it "fuckin crowded and hot" lets grab a pint.
