Gay History 101

Seems like some our younger friends dont have some of the knowledge that some of us....ummmmm....more experienced people do. Thought it would be fun to start this thread to share information.

I'll start.

Did you know Agnes Morehead was gay? Yes folks, Endora on Bewitched was a big ole Les! Think of that next time your watching TV Land.

Who's Next?

Are you forgetting Darrin#2 (Dick Sargent) and Uncle Arthur (Paul Lynde)? We can call Bewitched the Queer Eye of its time.

OK now history for $500.

Anyone remember the hankies gay men wore in their back pockets?

Wow, that even amazed me that someone thought of all of that!

Here's another one, to go along with the hankies, do you remember wearing keys clipped on to a loop of the jeans?

Do you remember that the right side and left side meant something different, and that on the east coast what it meant was the reverse of what it meant on the west coast?

Now, I didn't know that (having spent my formative years only on the west coast).

Okay, now I have a question for our lesbian sisters who are of a certain age. Did you all have some equivalent of hankies or keys to indicate certain, um, proclivities, interests or tendencies?

When I was a college student in 1991-95, gay people and their supporters wore buttons with a triangle insignia. A pink triangle against a black background was for a gay man and a black triangle against a white background was for a lesbian. The triangle insignias were the same symbols that the Nazis used to label gay men and lesbians in the concentration camps.

I remember the first time that I wore a pink triangle button. It was a big step in my coming out and embracing my identity as a gay man. Now I rarely see the triangles used as a symbol of identification.

Me Too!

I wore a pink triangle on my belt in college, and it was also a big step for me in comming out!

WOW See it us a Small World after all.

I would love to hear from the girls how it was back in the day!
