Random-generated headline from The Laffer Utilities.

Homosexual are individuals who are interested in or in love with the the same sex.


Homosexual characters appear in Larry 6, Larry 7, and "Larry 8": Magna Cum Laude. The series sometimes includes gay "transvestite" characters as well.

"Homosexual" is one of the random words used to generate funny headlines in Laffer Utilities (along with Transsexual and Bi-sexual), see TLU transcript.

Many of the gay characters in the series are stereotypes used for comedic effect, including Gary Fairy or the gay transvestite Shablee.

Cavaricchi Vuarnet shirt has the initials "Homo", The Narrator pokes fun at the double meaning of this term as both referring to same sex attraction (lesbians in her case), as well as a University.

The transvestite character Shablee turns out be a 'homosexual' character, giving Larry his first (admitted) homosexual experience.[1]

The events surrounding Annette Boning and Larry Laffer leads to Pursor making some homosexual innuendo about Larry, if he asks about Boning. The death of Annette's elderly, while he was in bed with him, while Larry thought he was making love to Annette. Larry ends up thinking that Annette thinks he is homosexual after he remains cool in bed with the remains of Mr. Boning following the event.[2]

If Larry attempts to seduce Gary Fairy, he will get a game over "death" ending in which he runs off with Gary into the sunset to live a gay for the rest of his life.

Close Encounters of the Third Kind\" is about:
a. politics in third-world countries. 
b. homo- and heterosexual sex. 
c. creatures from outer space. 
d. a bicycle race across Alaska."

A number of jokes in the series such as some that include the plumber in LSL6 involve homosexual allusions or innuendo. For example the plumber accusing Larry of having flown in from San Francisco, under certain actions. San Francisco is on several occasions used as a 'code word' for gay, as is 'Hollywood'.

Behind the scenes

The portrayal and use of characters and the terminology used may be considered offensive by modern standards, but was common back in early 1990s. For more information see .

Most homosexual characters in the series are effeminate stereotypes or 'butch dyke lesbian' "man-haters' played to 'comedic effect'. This is largely considered outdated by modern standards, but was common in the 1990s.
