There are at least two LGBTQ mentions in Grand Theft Auto III.
The first is Fudge Packing Corporation, which is a shipping business. The ads for the business apparently also appear in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Vice City Stories. The name is a derogatory term for homosexual men (we are listing this as an “implict” mention only because recognizing it requires knowing this slang term).
The second mention is the radio-controlled car known as the RC Bandit. Supposedly, the name refers to a slang term for homosexuals (“arse bandit”), but we could find no confirmation of this.
