''I started thinking, kind of happily about the suspect nature of a middle-aged, white, gay man driving an ice cream truck and the fact that people would talk under their breath and say, "There goes the old Queen with his ice cream truck." so I thought, well let's completely head them off at the pass here. Make the truck so flaming that there's no way anyone can claim anything.... Most everyone just laughs and takes a picture. Teenage kids sometimes act like I should be embarrassed or something like that and they'll come up to me and go, "So what's big and gay about your truck?" and I'll say, "Me!" and they're so disarmed that I can just admit that right off the bat that they don't have a comeback. It's sort of over.''
