My gay job recruiter told me to play the gay card with a prospective employer.

I thought that was kind of weird. He said that my potential supervisor is gay, and that I should draw some parallels between my coming out and why I want this job so much. Maybe even mention some bars I frequent. I know you're supposed to be yourself and be relaxed at interviews, but don't you think this is sharing a bit much? I mean, if I and the employer were black, I wouldn't draw parallels between overcoming racial obstacles with career obstacles. Anyway, wouldn't a potential employer be smart enough to see that as kissing ass/pandering to get the job? Not sure what was going through this recruiter's mind.
