Autobot Tracks: in case you didn’t already know, he’s gay

A Friend of Tracks

The crest of The Friends of Tracks

Most fans of Generation 1 know a few of the ongoing fan-made conjectures, such as Beachcomber is a hippie, Arcee is kind of a swinger bettern Hot Rod and Springer, and of course, Track seems so very… very… fabulous?

This is a pretty common consideration amongst the Transformers fanbase including a specific group of Botcon-goers that refer to themselves as the Friends of Tracks. The name of this non-official group is based on the assumption that Track is in fact a gay robot. This has trickled out beyond just the hardcore Transformers fan base as indicated by this top 10 I recently found: “The Top Ten Ambiguosly Gay Action Figures.”

Tracks receives the 9 spot on the blog, and it seems rightly so. My favorite part is the description of Raul as a “hot hispanic boy.”

I for one commend the vigor of G1 Tracks and I hope some day he too can feel free to join his human breatheren in celebrating his sexual orientation. Until then, we will continue to raise an eyebrow at the flame-decal toting Corvette of awesome.

    just typical thing of gays to pick something and try to make theirs even if they are not. just one thing ITS A F**KING TOY. always trying whatever to have some attention. i´m not homophobic or whatever just i thing its the stupiedest thing i have heard in the day. Batman and Robin.. s*it like that… only gay people and homophobics think about that… one more thing… maybe some characters could fit in that but being friends of blurr, friends of starscream or friends of sustreaker doesn´t match…
