    I think it’s more upper class eccentrics rather than gays.

    Yes, if they are college professors, gas station employees, snooker players, or British secret agents

    My Dad always did.  

    It's more an old man thing.  Or a "I want to be different" thing.  

    Doctors sometimes wear bowties because it's actually super dangerous for anyone wearing a regular tie to treat patients.  (They can dangle in wounds, if you cough it lands on the tie, and most people don't clean ties that often.)   Louis Farrakhan does and I think he is straight.

    I guess it's like the question of whether a guy wearing a turtleneck is gay.

    Personally I think bowties look geeky ( think original Archie and Jimmy Olsen from the 1940s-'50s comics ), but they're fine with a tuxedo for formal occasions.

    My niece's husband wears bow ties to work.  He is in the medical sales field.  The bow tie makes him noticeable and rememberable to his customers.

    They're not common but they're as classy as ever when worn.

    A lot of suits are sold with bowties.
