Top definition
The unexpected approval or recognition given to someone perceived to be doing something who is in actual fact doing something else, and there is no opportunity to explain.

To get the Lesbian Nod, to be given a Lesbian Nod, to give a Lesbian Nod to someone.
Holding the hand of your same-sex blind/disabled friend to guide them in the street is what you're actually doing, but people in the street give you recognition for being "out and proud".

Usage: "I got the Lesbian Nod today for chasing a purse-snatcher, when actually I was running after a bus."

Putting a War and Peace dustjacket on your copy of Twilight and reading it in public is not an action meriting a lesbian nod - the confusion must be genuinely accidental.
