Quiz: Which Lesbian Coat Are You?

From denim cut-off vests to black leather motorcycle jackets to pull-over Patagonia fleeces, there are so many elements of outerwear one could, if one needed to for any reason, associate with the queer community, and each of those items have a certain personality to them, if you really think about it, or perhaps need to think about it, for the purpose of writing a quiz. Not all varieties of lesbian outerwear are accounted for in this quiz, but quite a few are, and now you should take it and see what happens!

  1. Aw the overcoat description is such a compliment! Indeed I have an overcoat, but living in the subtropics it’s much more aspirational than practical.

    Incidentally there is a typo in the first question as it is about desserts not deserts.

  2. Ugh I don’t know if I’ve ever felt so called out by such a quiz before… 😅 Zip up hoodie? I mean, I sure wore a lot of them in accidental boy mode, and loved borrowing my girlfriend’s, and I do try to be reliable, and I’m pretty go-with-the-flow… So ok yeah you got me. Am I really that easy to read? 🤣🤦🏻‍♀️
