What is the ‘don’t act straight when you’re gay!’
‘Don’t look at me like that!’

[Image: a1c5350e-47af-4375-b6c1-c22e3a043c00-e16...24x500.jpg]

“Oh, don’t look at me like that! Don’t act straight when you’re gay” is a new TikTok sound is not standing for any heteronormative nonsense. Certainly not during Pride Month!

If your FYP is anything like mine, you won’t be able to scroll without coming across this sound right now. It’s everywhere, it’s really quotable and it’s camp as tits.



The setup goes as such: group of pals are out for a bev, and their gay friend is having a pint rather than something more stereotypically femme. The gay in the group lip syncs “don’t look at me like that!” and the hetero pal does the “don’t act straight when you’re gay!”. And hilarity ensues!



Where is the sound from!?

It is, like all gay content worth your time, from Lady Gaga of course!

The sound is taken from a live performance of her song Donatella – an album track on her third record ARTPOP and an ode to her good friend and fashion designer Donatella Versace. If you don’t know Donatella, it’s one of the most high camp bangers in Gaga’s discography.

The song starts with the iconic lyrics “I am so fab! Check out – I’m blonde. I’m skinny. I’m rich. And I’m a little bit of a bitch!”

You might have seen the big #JusticeForArtpop campaign that went on earlier this year – it was likely a big factor in the “don’t act straight” sound surfacing and gaining traction on TikTok.

Pints aside, there’s other variations, too:

Obviously, these videos are all done tongue in cheek and are laughing and embracing the gay stereotypes that plague us as gay people. Couldn’t think of a funnier way to create this Pride Month.
Note: No trees were destroyed in the sending of this contaminant free message. However, I do concede, a significant number of electrons may have been inconvenienced.
