LGBTQ References in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories

The two rival computer companies in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories are called TOS (Technical Operating System) and Fruit Computers (a clear parody of Microsoft and Apple computers). The users of the former are called Tossers, the latter Fruits. Both terms have derogatory homosexual connotations.

In addition, there is a parody organization called Citizens United Negating Technology for Life and People’s Safety (the abbreviation for which is a derogatory reference to female genitalia). One of the actions of this organization is to ban a website that “is accused of influencing visitors to become homosexuals.”
