About

Is You LGB 'Cause Your Gun Pink? is a catchphrase taken from a viral Grand Theft Auto Online (GTA 5) clip by YouTuber TrapCeleb that became a TikTok sound and meme in early 2023. The soundbite references the LGBTQ+ abbreviation, associating the other player's pink gun with them being gay. The sound was used by mostly queer or female TikTokers who highlighted a cliché LGBTQ+ signifier, hypothesizing that the secondary character is a gay man, lesbian or transgender person.

Origin

On October 31st, 2021, YouTuber[1] TrapCeleb uploaded an hour-long livestream recording of Grand Theft Auto V: Online called "WE AT THE BODEGA PT 4." At the 11:16-minute mark, TrapCeleb runs towards a player's car, gets inside and then asks the player sitting in the backseat, "Is you LGB 'cause your gun pink?" Over the course of a year and a half, the video received roughly 738,300 views and 16,000 likes (shown below).



I'm about to get in this man truck.
And I think it's Quando Rando back here.
How you doing? [cackling] You got a Newport long hon-
Oh, don't point that gun at my face!
Is you LGB 'cause your gun pink?
