This Website Speaks Gay

I’ve been doing a lot of research on Vancouver lately, and I’ve discovered several interesting facts about the city that claims to be #3 in North American film production.

None of these discoveries are quite as odd as this little navigational element I found on the Tourism Vancouver site:

Tourism Vancouver logo and 4 flags: French, German, Japanese, and 'Gay'

That would be the flags of France, Germany, Japan, and, well… gay pride.

I’m not sure what to make of this positioning. Of course, I applaud the prominence the city gives to its diverse populations, though it’s hardly unique. But wouldn’t one be correct to assume that as far as this site is concerned, gays speak another language?
