How interesting! The hardback American version that I first read it in
had the gay boys from the wineshop, and so does my paperback American
version. I haven't looked at the newest American edition, though. I
remember being amused and slightly surprised by the fact that they were
mentioned as such when I first read the book...

"If the injustice ... is of such a nature that it requires you to be the
agent of injustice to another, then I say, break the law. Let your life be a
counter-friction to stop the machine. What I have to do is to see, at
any rate, that I do not lend myself to the wrong, which I condemn."
-- Thoreau, "Resistance to Civil Government"
