Okay...I hope that I'm not out of line to ask this here, and if I am, I do apologize! I just have never thought to ask anyone I know around home...but I was told once that the rainbow colors used by the GLBT community were taken from the Rocky Horror Picture Show...one of my favorite movies. The guy who told me said it was from the scene when Rocky is brought to life. So, since this is Gay History 101, is this correct?

Thanks! And again I apologize if this question was out of line...I just want to make sure I have correct info so I don't perpetuate a myth.

This is the first time I've heard this. Wikipedia and a couple other sources cite 1978 as the first use of the rainbow flag as a gay pride flag (rainbow flags have represented several social movements over time). More info at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rainbow_flag

There also a short article at http://www.cs.cmu.edu/afs/cs/user/sc...nbow-flag.html that discusses the origin of the rainbow flag as a gay pride flag.

Seattle in the '80s is where I learned about bandanas . . . for the most part, I only saw them on leather dykes. I had a bunch from when I was a camp counselor (yes, a Girl Scout) and was amazed that someone had come up with a whole 'code' using them!

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.
Just a slight correction, the Nazis used pink triangles for homosexuals and black triangles for prostitutes, not lesbians. In the 1980's the black triangle was adopted as a symbol for lesbians.

There is a book called "The Men of The Pink Triangle" it is only about 50 pages long. This book tells the story of the pink triangle - personally I don't like embracing a symbol born in so much fear and hatred.

On another note - what is with the bathlis? I have been out for over 15 yrs and still don't get that one

I wrote a paper for school one time about the symbols of lesbians - pretty interesting stuff - the rainbow does have an orgin story in San Franscisco (I don't recall it off hand) and each color represents something. The bathlis or battle axe is usually used by the hard core lesbian, another symbol adopted is the Lambda or greek L - for the obvious reasons. I recently saw a silver lipstick of all things

Does anyone remember the flap about earrings? Which ear and where on the ear?

Damn, and I thought that gaydar was how y'all knew about each other. LOL, one thing I was told was gay men wore one earring on the right ear, straight men on the left.

In my old days of being an office manager, I displayed a pink triangle magnet on the entrance to my cube. It was to symbolize a "safe place", corporate speak for anyone entering would be treated with respect and dignity, no matter sexual preference or orientation, etc. There were no gays in my office, but there were a few straights that took exception to it. Too bad for them being the narrow minded jerks that they were.

Love all this history, tho. Now I suppose I will be on the lookout for hankies, bandanas, keys, etc.

SeattleRedBear...thanks for clarifying this for me...since I had only heard this once I really did want to know if it was true. I found the articles interesting...especially the one from wikipedia.

Thanks again!

You're welcome. I see you're a T.A. Can you put in a good word with the Tag Fairy for me?

Here's a tid-bit. The Stonewall riots took place the same time that people and a lot of gays were in New York mourning the death of Judy Garland in 1969.

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?
Pretty much weren't alot of the people on Bewitched gay - i.e Dr. Bombay and Uncle Arther, Darren #2...
