Ask a Homo: U-Haulin’


Welcome back to Ask a Homo, a judgment-free zone where the gays of Outward answer questions about LGBTQ politics, culture, etiquette, language, and other queer conundrums. This week, we consider the oldest entry in the Big Book of Lesbian Jokes: “What do lesbians take on a second date?” The answer, of course, is a U-Haul. But is that true? Do lesbians move in together more quickly than straight people? June Thomas offers some theories.

If there are questions you’ve been dying to ask a member of the real rainbow coalition, this is your chance. Send your queries—for publication—to, and please put “ASK A HOMO” in the subject line. Note that questions may be edited.


June Thomas is a Slate culture critic and editor of Outward, Slate’s LGBTQ section.
