    It's that indeterminate quality when you look at a guy and immediately recognize him as gay. There's something in the eyes, the smile that lets you know he's a homosexual.

    Not all gay men have this look, but a lot do.

    I've noticed that at the gay bars, anywhere between 50% and 70% of guys will have this look, whereas some don't. What's your experience? Do you have a gay face?

    I postulate that over time, the continued use of feminine facial expressions among some gay men has resulted in facial muscles taking on more feminine characteristics.

    A guy doesn't need to be anywhere near as flamboyant as Little Richard for me to establish his homosexuality, especially in cases where gay face is concerned.

    Hmmm... I don't really see it.
    Some of these guys look kind of goofy, but there are plenty of straight guys who fall into that category, also. icon_lol.gif

    "Gay Face" is one aspect that gaydar can detect. Yeah, some guys have a gay face. Some have a gay voice, or a gay walk, or gay hand gestures. Any one or all of them in varying combinations can activate my gaydar.

    I definitely had gay face as a pre-teen, not sure how much remains today in my 60s. Hard for the individual to judge himself.

    But I remember once seeing a baseball team pic with me, from when I was 8 (1957), that came to light in my 40s but now lost to a flood. And I was shocked. If you played the "Guess which one is the gay boy?" game there's no doubt 10 out of 10 would pick me out from the team. It was that obvious, based on that face. Well, to everyone but myself at the time. No wonder my parents always knew.

    I doubt it, most people seem to be shocked/unbelieving to learn I likes me some hot guys IRL, but, meh, I will let you be the judge.

    When I was a young hormonal teen I used to have a seemingly pissed-off 'screw-face' lol, but it has mellowed out now into a more relaxed expression ;p...

    Either way, i'd probably say the epitome of the 'gayface' is this happy young gent, it's very 'happy' =] :

    I think the more comfortable you become with yourself. The more gayface you get icon_razz.gif

    I guess I do a little bit, I don't really think about whether or not I have "gayface". I just think I look like me.

    A lot of gay guys have "gayface" to varying degrees. Nothing wrong with that, if that means people can tell you're gay that's fine too. Nobody really cares anyway.

    Oh i'm very comfortable with myself. Like a stoned tree sloth.

    I doubt yours is a general rule of thumb unless one was trying to mask their exorbitant 'gayface' to begin with until they decided to mask it no longer, which, personally, was not the case for me, as i'd have to actively put some concentrated effort in attempting the 'faceface' expression.

    Example:

    You notice the person interviewing you is gay. You decide to put on the gayface in order to better your chances in securing the position. Smiling becomes more exorbitant, eyes open as much as possible, eyebrows raise to their limits, tilting of the head angle, and you intensely imagine unicorn glitter dust emitting from your penis and rubbing along your prostate....RESULT.

    Quite taxing in long bursts, but in the above scenario worth the effort.

    Shawnathan saidI don't see it when I look in the mirror, but I see it when I look at pictures of myself.

    And really - you got Richard Simmons and Little Richard confused? lol


    Hey, they're easy to get mixed up. And from the pics posted in your profile, I'm not seeing any gay face.

    Kinda, but I think it is more the intensity behind the smile that differentiates a smiley face to a 'gayface'....

    Exibit A- three smiley faces, but only the middle one possesses the bonafide 'gayface' intensity, he brings the jazz hands to his eyes:

    I've noticed a lot of gay guys have squinty eyes and a lot of Mormons have bug eyes. Of course, when I say that people think I'm crazy. Just an observation.
