STICK SHIFT: THE GAY CAR BLOG
You may not by gay, but your car is...or so says Brett Berk's Stick Shift, a new weekly column at VanityFair.com. Each Thursday, Stick Shift will showcase specific "Gay" Cars and their underlying queerness. Says it's author:
"We won't go after low-hanging fruit like Saturns or Subarus. Instead, we’ll focus on the obscure and the ambiguous: cars that emit the subtle semiotic signals that register on my GayCarDar. In addition to ID-ing individual Homotivators, we’ll run comparison features (“Which Car is Gayer”), perform outings (“Closet Case Cars”) or answer burning questions (“How Do Gay Guys Keep Their Cars So Clean?”). And while we will, by necessity, trade in stereotypes, we wish to remind readers that it’s all meant in fun."
