The Ajax Steel Mill is a steel mill in Springfield. It also doubles as a nightclub called The Anvil.
When Homer was concerned that Bart was homosexual, he took Bart to a steel mill to show him an example of real men at hard work. Roscoe, the mill's manager, gave them a tour which Homer enjoyed, until they met the rest of the workers When Roscoe asked the workers to say hello to Homer and Bart, they all waved and said "Hel-looooooo!" in a sing-song, stereotypically effeminate fashion, and Homer saw that all the workers in the plant were openly homosexual.
Roscoe then pulled a chain which made music play and a disco ball descend from the ceiling, and all the workers started dancing with each other, turning the steel mill into a gay nightclub, called "The Anvil." Roscoe said that after working hard, they played hard.
Homer then beat a hasty retreat from the steel mill, covering Bart's eyes as he slowly backed away.
