Beautifully illustrated throughout by the author, Gaydar is divided into ten gay sections, including everything from gayspeak to gaywork to gayhouse to gaysport, and much more. Gaydar takes a playful look at the ins and outs of gay life while serving as an indispensable guide to shopping, traveling, nightclubbing, dining, working, and what it means to be “part of the team.” If you’re the average straight reader, don’t expect miracles, but if you’re willing, this book will help you discover innate perceptive skills long buried in the gay parts of your mind and body. Now, if you’re gay, you’ll be certain to find Gaydar the perfect companion for honing your gaydar sensors, rediscovering old tricks—and even finding some new ones.
