Now we know why Fossy wants to be a minister

Without a shadow of a doubt, I can now see why Craig Foss wants to be a Minister.

He already has a gay ute, if he becomes a minister then he can travel in style with what a Gaywheels contributor describes as the unofficial gay car in Los Angeles:

…certain gay communities seem to prefer certain cars. The leather-and-Levis set loves a good truck; butch gals enjoy anything with 4×4, and for reasons yet to be explained, bears adore the tiniest of cars, like the MINI Cooper and the Mazda Miata. (This bodes well for the Fiat 500, no?)

And so, we weren’t really surprised yesterday when someone suggested that the BMW 7-Series is the unofficial gay car of Los Angeles. After all, communities can be tied to geography just as easily as body type, so it makes sense that LA’s up-and-commers would be drawn to the sleek, high-profile elegance of the 7-Series.

The Vehiclist explains:

Remember recently when Ron Howard and Vince Vaughan got into trouble for describing a car as “gay” in a movie trailer? It sparked a small debate about the approprietness of the word – particularily because it was used in derogetory terms. And lets face it: people who still use the word gay as an insult are idiots. End of argument. So lets move on.  Gay is not a bad thing, it is not an insult, so can it be applied to cars? Recently, a friend and I were having a conversation about the very subject. Turns out, in an impromptu inventory of his gay friend’s cars, one vehicle stood out. The BMW 7 series. Like 7 out of the 10 gay people he counted drove the 7 series. Now, understand that this friend travels in a typical 40 something ( albeit fabulous) crowd of successful people. People in different industries, but of a particular economic class, obviously. But still, why the high number of 7 Series? In my own experience, I too could think of a disproportionate number of gay people who had a BMW 7 series as well. Maybe there was a trend…

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
