Gay Boy Off the Menu in Bushwick

by

Looks like you can’t just walk up to a counter and demand to eat a gay boy anymore.

The Post reports that when Williamsburg haunt Hana Food opened a new location in Bushwick, it changed its “Gay Boy” wrap (egg, vegan bacon, vegan cheese, avocado, sprouts and sun-dried tomatoes) to the “Garden Boy.” The changes, the owner says, came because his staff complained.

Must not have only been gay staff members who were concerned. “The Illegal” sandwich has become “South of the Border,” while “Butter Face” became the “Farmer’s Tan.”

Who knew the “That’s so gay” dilemma would move from a language debate, to movies, to the sandwich world?
