Unnamed Homosexual NPCs in Grand Theft Auto IV

In the multiplayer version of GTA IV, female NPCs can use either taunts or flirty dialogue. Reportedly (see here and here) they only use flirty taunts while near women and intimidating taunts near men. Moreover, in the multiplayer version it is reportedly possible to customize one’s avatar to look like the character below (which, as the title suggests, is meant to be read as a lesbian player-character):
