fag mag n. - (short for fag magnet)
1) a lesbian with many gay male friends 2) a lesbian who attracts gay men at the gay bar
Out alone on a Tuesday night for a quick 12 dollar mojito and a rendezvous with destiny, I parked myself at The Abbey, debatably the most renowned gay and lesbian meeting spot (on the L Word, Jenny claims to have met Dana at "The Abbey") in West Hollywood. To the readers from elsewhere, you have not completed your Gay LA Trip without stopping here.
Anyway, I've barely even taken my seat, and it starts. I actually wasn't sure about the orientation of the guy who struck up a conversation with me. I tried tapping into my gay-dar, but the test results came back inconclusive. At first he seemed a cowboy type (he was from Oklahoma, drove a jeep, and his nickname is "Curly"). Then he tells me he paints and uses glitter and said that "the gays" always talk about how wonderful his work is. So who knows, right? Sure enough, he is an aspiring actor (commonplace in LA), so NOW his whole deal is making more sense. It was a little dark and the lights over the bar were red, but I saw that Curly indeed has a handsome Hollywood facade. This being the case, he attracts 2 more men to our little banter, and I see there's no question of their orientation (especially anytime Curly bent over)!
And let me just say that if making friends was a profession, I'd be the best in the business. Ironically, those 2 guys worked in gay and lesbian media, so one of the first things I told them about was everyone's favorite blog, Lesbiatopia!
2 Amstel lights and a cigarette later, we're laughing and hugging and talking press passes to get me and Lesberita into Dinah Shore for free.
But suddenly I realize the strange turn my evening has taken. I made myself pretty and went out fishing for women, and I score 2 gay men and some hot guy. If I was any other sexual orientation, I'd be the luckiest person alive. But life continues to point and laugh at me.
Hence, the "fag-mag" is born!
