People Revealed They're Queer Without Actually Saying They're Queer, And The Responses Are Golden

"I drink iced coffee in the middle of winter."

In honor of Pride month, we asked the LGBTQ+ folks of the BuzzFeed Community to play a popular internet game with us: "Tell me you're queer without telling me you're queer." And to no surprise, their responses were hilarious and brilliant:

1. "My most regularly worn shoes are combat boots and Converse."


2. "I drink iced coffee in the middle of winter."


3. "I can't parallel park, and I failed my driving test twice before getting my license."


4. "I'm a gay man, and when I was 4 years old, I asked for a Magic Tea Party set with purple teacups that turned hot pink with cold water from Santa."


5. "I cannot properly sit in a chair."

8. "I've seen every episode of Glee."

10. "This is my most listened to music playlist on Spotify 😂."
