About

Homer Simpson in a Lesbian Bar refers to an image macro series using a shot from American animated sitcom The Simpsons. In the image, the character Homer Simpson can be seen as the only male in a bar intended for female-identifying homosexuals. The image has since been used for the purposes of object labeling to express outsiderness or an unpopular opinion.

Origin

On December 18th, 1994, the Simpsons episode "Fear of Flying" aired in the United States.[1] In the episode, Homer (voice by Dan Castellaneta) is banned from his favorite bar and attempts to find a new one, at one point trying a lesbian bar called "She She Lounge" (clip below).



Spread

On June 5th, 2012, YouTuber [2]saltybrutus uploaded a clip of the scene to the website. Within seven years, the post received 24,000 views.

On January 23rd, 2013, Tumblr [3] user ghoststhatweknew posted a GIF set of the scene. The post received more than 849,000 notes in six years (shown below).

Later that year, on May 3rd, Facebook [4] group SimpsonsQuotesThatNobodyGetsAnymore posted a two-panel image macro of the scene. The post received more than 7,000 reactions, 180 comments and 940 shares in six years.

On June 29th, 2015, Imgur [5] user IdontKillKids posted an image of Homer with LGBTQ+ flags over the other characters heads with the caption "Me on Facebook." The image was in response to a popular Facebook photo filter that allowed users to express their support for the Supreme Court's decision that homosexual could legally marry. The post received more than 6,000 points and 3,000 views in four years (shown below, center).

Since then, the image has been used to comment on trends and conversations on social media, such as the ubiquity of the French Flag filter after the 2015 Paris Terrorist Attacks (shown below, right).
