    No sweetie, not every lgbt person looks different from straight people. I am a true example of this. When people see me they ALWAYS think I'm straight because I'm so feminine and I wear makeup and dresses etc. They expect lesbians to all be big butch manly women. I blow their minds when they find out I'm a lesbian lol. If you ever saw me you would NEVER be able to guess that I'm gay. There are plenty of lesbians like me who look feminine like me too. So NO it is not always easy to know who is gay.

    You'd be surprised. The thing is, the only people you can PROVE are gay are the one who are out. And, if someone is out as gay, they'll feel more comfortable acting stereotypically gay.

    But did you know that ALMOST EVERYONE, as in, like 90% of the female population and something like 70% of the male population, has occasional bisexual urges, and I heard somewhere that one in four or five is full out gay. Think about that. Four/five. How many guys are in your favorite band? Odds are one of them is a closet queer.

    Consider it a fashion. Not every gay person follows it, but many do.

    In the 1970s you had the "Castro Clone" look for a fashion from San Francisco. It was short hair, parted on the side, and a moustache.

    Just fashion.

    Their are a lot of men out their that act / look gay but aren't gay while other masculine straight acting guys are very gay, but you can't tell it by looking at them. You can't go by stereotypes, you will be wrong every time.

    We really don't look any different, maybe it's just you having a good gaydar, knowing the typical traits of a gay, lesbian, or bisexual? I don't know of any bisexual traits but you might just be able to pick them out easier because you can 'detect' them better.

    It's kind-of weird... there are some people you'd never guess are gay. And others you just get a strong vibe from.
