The idea of "Gaydar" is that people are highly accurate at detecting gays in a crowd of straights.

But does it actually exist, and how good is yours? This test will help you find out!

We have pulled a sample of profile pictures from an on line dating site, here you will have to choose who is gay and who is straight in 60 pairs of photos (stratified by gender and race, but otherwise random).
