FINDING FELICIA

Catchy Gay Dismissal “Bye Felicia” Finally Immortalized In Song

unnamed-5Celebrated New York DJ Joe Gauthreaux debuts at #5 on the Billboard Dance chart this week with his brand new single, “Bye Felicia!”

The popular phrase favored by dismissive gay men was patented by a California woman named Felicia earlier this year, but that hasn’t stopped Gauthreaux from using it more than 20 times in the catchy new tune.

The track’s fun music video features jacked model Steven Gant and, according to a press release from former Drag Race sponsor Project Publicity, “NYC tranny hostess Erica Gabriel.”

Check it out below, and tell us if you can figure out: “Where’s the individual they keep calling Felicia?”

      The phrase “Bye Felicia” comes from the movie Friday…just saying.

      Never understood why gays seem to love and adopt urban culture. It’s usually not very intelligent

      @gskorich: The clip shows the origin of the term. The character in the movie, Felicia, is annoying and he dismisses her with Bye Felicia. After the movie, people started using it as a dismissive catch all. Particularly black women used it as a dismissal to other women. Bye Felicia = you aren’t even worth my time to use your real name. Then, as we often do, gay guys started using the term and baby gays like the Queerty staff think we came up with it. In reality, it’s been around for almost 20 years.

      “Sigh. Never gets old. What’s been a black dismissal for almost 20 years has become a common gay dismissal. Just like “to read” someone is now considered a gay concept.”

      I am 37 years old and I am not Black. I watched that damned movie when it first came out when I was 18. My brothers and I have been saying “Bye Felicia” since we saw the movie all those years ago. >:(

      Actually I remember hearing the phrase, ” Bye Felicia” during one of the comedy skits on ” In Living Color”. And this was around 1987.

      Whites, especially white gays, love taking things from black culture. The same things black people get called ghetto, unintelligent, and monkeys for.
