Gay Florida Man Complains After Receiving ‘GAY’ License Plate From Auto Dealership
In some states, such as Oklahoma, motorists have fought for the right to have LGBT-themed license plates.
But one gay Florida man says he was offended when a Volvo dealership gave him a license plate for his new car that reads, “GAYW13.”
GayCraig Lukas purchased the vehicle with his partner from a dealership in Winter Park three weeks ago, but says he’s kept it in the garage since then.
“We just prefer to remain quiet,” Lukas told Orlando’s WFTV Channel 9.
As it turns out, the dealership wasn’t playing a joke on Lukas. The plate is one of many beginning with “GAY” that were issued by the state in the Orlando area, ranging from “GAYA01” to “GAYW35,” according to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles.
