    This.
     
  2. I always wear a purple shirt and pink hitops with a gayish hairstyle so I probably look like a gay male.

    I do not know. I'm not gay, but I do wonder if people could guess that I'm not straight by my appearance. If you were take me and my twin brother standing side by side, and were told one of us is straight and one of us is LGBT, I think most would assume correctly that I was LGBT one (perhaps because I have a softer look). Whether that really makes me "look gay", I don't know. Clothing-wise, I often wear skinny jeans and I have no problem wearing pink on occasion, but so do many straight people I know, so that is no longer the giveaway that it once was.

    Honestly, I'm curious as to if I look gay to others...I often grow out my hair and then cut it to a pixie so that the hair can be donated, so I've had a couple comments when I had short hair. Also, for some reason, even with long hair, I get mistaken for a guy, especially when I was younger. but I'm pretty sure that not many people guess that I'm bi just from appearance. But hey, I may be wrong.

    Not particularly. I'm pretty feminine and wear a lot of make up and since most of the people around me assume all lesbians are butch with short hair and snapbacks, I don't think it even enters anyone's minds when they see me.

    Not really. I have had some "oh my ... I had no idea" ... responses...But then again I am so off the radar, I'm practically invisible, lol.

    Yea same about the haircut! When I was questioning my gender identity and cut my hair short, my dad was like that but thought that I should only go for girls because he thinks I look to masculine but I'm like no I'll go for whoever I want -3-
    I don't know I look like a feminine lesbian but eh shrugs

    I mean I guess, kind of, but not really. Like I don't think it's very obvious but people also wouldn't be too surprised if they knew I am gay.

    Apparently so, some women in my year in sixth-form (who had known me since year 7) thought that I am gay and a man in my year group thought (correctly) that I am bisexual.

    Although there's no really ''bisexual style'' like gay and lesbian people do. Maybe a wristband with the colours?

    I pluck my eyebrows fiercely, but dress like a slob most of the time and I recently gave myself a buzzcut because I wanted to assess how badly my hairline is receding. It's not doing well I'm afraid.

    I'm generally a very reserved person and don't really fit any of the stereotypes people would expect.

    I'm small and skinny but I apparently give off a straight vibe acording to someone who had a crush on me and asked me out.. But she apparently did the same with another gay person thinking they were straight so maybe I look gay... Damn... But I don't talk to anyone anyway so they don't really have any impression to go off.. I'm just the shy weird person that doesn't talk

    Nah, I don't think so. My hair is pretty long for a boy though.

    I don't know. The way I dress or what makeup I wear etc. depends massively on how I am feeling or what I am doing on a given day. Today I was in jeans, trainers and a hoody with my hair all back and no makeup on. Tomorrow I plan to be out in high-heels, makeup with hair down etc. I don't really fall into any stereotype.

    I know that people I haven't come out to are suspicious that I might be gay, but I don't think it is because I look gay, I think it is due to my words and actions.

    Right now my style is a strange mix of butch and metrosexual elements, so I think I look a little stereotypically gay no matter what gender I'm read as. But for people who already have a strong viewpoint of my gender they just tend to focus on whatever part of my style fits it.

    Wait, gay is an appearance o.o.
    I meant I'm comfortable wearing pink / purple... Does that make me have the appearance of gay? Lol

    you can probably tell when i'm with my hetero friends because they all wear a lot of makeup and i don't and they dress all cute and stuff and i only try to look good when i'm around this amazing girl who i have had a crush on for a year.
