Locations in GTA V

Cockatoos in a supposedly gay bar in Grand Theft Auto V, which plays no role in the game or storyline. The one wiki that indicates this is a gay bar determines this by the crowd outside and name of the bar. A video of the crowd outside the nightclub is available here (content warning: violence). A fan video  (content warning: violence, transphobia) suggests that the bar Singleton’s  is a gay club for similar reasons

The store Homme Gina, is supposedly a reference to “manjina” i.e. a male’s anus and in turn a reference to homosexual sex. This could not be confirmed however.

There is a street in the Sandy Shores area of the game (based on the real world town of Desert Shores), called Lesbos Lane.
