How’s Your Gaydar?
Can you really tell if someone is queer? Do you have a finely-tuned ‘Gaydar’ that can pick up on the subtle signals and cues that indicate whether or not the guy that you’re talking to is on your team? There’s not much science behind it, but it’s a fun way to gamify the dating experience in the real world.
It also happens to be the name of one of the original online dating specialists for the LGBTQ community – Gaydar was established over 20 years ago and is still going strong.
The Gaydar team have been out and about asking people about their Gaydar, and sharing stories about what it means to be queer in today’s world.
If you want to take part, send us your video!
You can tell us about how accurate your Gaydar is, share your experience of dating, or tell us about any aspect of your life. We’ll be featuring the videos on our YouTube channel and across our social media.
If you’re not sure what to talk about on your video, here’s some questions that you can choose from to get you started:
What’s the funniest queer experience you have had?

How professional does my video need to be?
This is something short and punchy that you can film on your phone. Once you’ve filmed it, play it back to make sure you’re happy with it. Things to check for are that your sound is nice and clear, and that the lighting is nice and bright.
