Gaydar is the ''sixth sense'' that any gay man or lesbian woman has built into their genes that allows them to detect anyone within their immediate area who is also a ''member of the family''. Gaydar is NOT based on whether a gay man is flamboyant or whether a lesbian is masculine. Gaydar is activated and does detect other gays whether they are openly gay or not.
Maria: ''Angelo, I need you to tell me whether or not my new male friend is gay, because these days, one can never really tell.''

Angelo:"Maria, my gaydar has not gone off, so no, he's not gay. Trust me."

Maria:"Thanks Angelo. I knew that you'd tell me if my new crush really liked men more than he wanted to let on."

Angelo:"No biggie. What good is having gaydar if I can't use it to help my best girlfriend?"

A persons ability to ACCURATELY tell if people around them are actually homosexual. Without asking the suspect or anyone who knows them directly or indirectly.
Person of "happier" inclination walks into a bar in a backwater, where incest is the norm but gays are burned at the post and manages to get laid with a local of the same sex from said bar would be said to have good gaydar and some pretty good moves!
