I know this sounds crazy but it seems like most gay Black men that I encounter have names like Daquan, Tyquan, Rashaad, Davonte, Trashon, etc. Am I tripping or is this prevalent around your parts too? It's like they have a certain ring to them. It's to the point where I hear a name and think off bat that there is a 75% chance that bruh is gay.

Lamar.


It doesn't mean that they're gay but ....all the Lamar's I knew from elementary school and on up were gay very effeminate and limber.  That was my boy tho.  Could always count on him for a game of Barbie or She-Ra.

Where  do you live at? Atlanta? They sound like average black men names. But if you're in Atlanta this will all make sense.

Antoine is like the gayest name ever. Idc how politically incorrect that statement is but I have yet to meet a straight Antoine.

Eta: 85% of the guys in Atlanta come off as a little touched to me.

Didn't we have a thread last week or so that had miami/south Fla the highest gay population in the US or atleast in the top 3?  that could splain why you meet so many...plus being a dancer, too.

Really, I thought that Florida had the highest HIV/AIDS population. I'm sure of that one.

Unfortunately, Miami does. There is a large gay population here and a lot of very DL men; this has a lot to do with those stats.

i'm going with the poster who said those names are probably popular in your area period. so it would also be popular among the gays.

all the gays i know have basic english names.


Posted By: Senior Detective
Date Posted: Jan 22 2014 at 8:14am
theory is flawed, the names are given at birth. Their parents don't know the baby's sexual orientation at birth.  So names have nothing to do with being gay.


Plus those are ghetto names. Idk anyone gay or straight with those names

I am around a lot of gay men for business purposes and I swear that there is a disproportionate # of them here with names that sound like that Kimoraye, Jaquarius, Lamonte', etc and other names that force you to pucker up your lips/make your lips quiver when pronouncing them. Sometimes, I dont know if they are birth names or aliases b/c I cant imagine a mom selecting that for her son. Also, when I see American men with 2 last names hyphened, I wonder...such as John Davidson-Smith, etc b/c as time passes, the ones that I know with those names eventually come out. My friend is making a documentary on made up/non-traditional names and I am going to ask him about his findings on this. He is gay with an extra, unnecessary consonant in his first nameStern Smile

I know its not PC but certain names do sound a bit gay. I think my mind is just linking those two things based on people I've met. There is probably no real correlation. The names in the OP fit and are ugly imo.

My thing is gay nicknames. Like they call Marcus, "baby" or Antoine is "toiney". Keith's nickname is "keekee"

I feel the same way about feminine black names period "Ty'querion, Jobari, La'Michael etc." Its unfortunate bc feminine names are so popular now. I prefer boy names like Carl, Mark, Malcolm etc
