If you’re looking to get your gay haired car or garage cleaner to stay in the closet, you’re going to have to get creative.
A recent article from the San Francisco Chronicle has revealed that many car washing sinks and garages across the country have installed gay haberdasher decals that will conceal your gay and lesbian identity.
The decals were apparently installed to protect customers from potential lawsuits, although some customers complained that they were having problems with their haberds.
In a statement to SFGATE, a spokesperson for Car Wash America, a trade association for car manufacturers, said that the company was aware of the issues with the gay-themed decals and has offered to install them at the sinks in all its stores.
The spokesperson added that the decals are currently not installed in any of the 1,500 Car Wash locations in the country.
The company’s statement was also published on their website, where the decal is labeled as: “Gay haberdaesser decals, made to cover your gay/lesbian identity, are available at all Car Wash stores.”
The company says it plans to provide a replacement in the coming weeks.
“It’s an option that is available at every Car Wash store,” the spokesperson wrote in an email.
“We understand that some customers are having issues with these decals at Car Wash and we are currently investigating this issue with the company.”
“We are aware that some people are having a problem with the decaling and have offered to replace them,” the company continued.
“Unfortunately, we can not provide replacements at this time.”
The spokesperson told SFGate that the issue was “unrelated to the decalling we have in place at Carwash stores.”
The San Francisco Gay & Lesbian Center confirmed that they are in contact with the Car Wash, as well as other Car Wash outlets, to see if they can provide replacement decals for customers.
