    I've notice g0y is developing perfume to tell other's of their g0y identity by wearing it. I thought, it's weird, but it might just work!

    We always have question about how to reveal our identity yet don't want to be too forward about it. So to cut short the guessing game when meeting people outside of the gay bars, what funny idea would you suggest that we do? icon_lol.gif

    I suggest secret hand shake and pinch with your thumb!

    I believe that lisping is more or less traditional.

    Actually,

    I read a few years ago that they tried to introduce this thing called a "gaydar" that was a little keychain thing much like what you use to open your car doors. Anway, you carried in your pocket and everytime you got within so many feet of another gay man who carried a "gaydar", it would start vibrating or beeping.

    I thought that was a pretty clever little thing, but I guess it never really caught on.

    Halston? I did a search and find nothing related to gay. I think you mix up your good look effect w/ something else. icon_confused.gif

    All I remember was the earing wearing right(?) side is gay or something. then the bandanna at the back pocket.

    "EBL"...the ear piercings were(at least in Ohio)from the "str8 perspective"... "Right is wrong and Left is right"...so if you were a guy and had your right ear pierced you were saying you are gay...Don't know about the rest of the country or if it even applies in Ohio anymore.
    I like the idea of having a "scent" all our own.
    Beats the hell out of hankies and lisps and boas, etc.
    Any more I just figure the better looking, better groomed and better built a guy is, the more likely it is that he's gay. Works pretty well for me. Learned that one from the straight women in my office. They claim most straight guys are lucky to not be uni-browed, knuckle-draggers...and gay guys would never alow themselves to be this way in public. Laughed my ass off when they told me this, until I went out a few times with them and let them test the theory out for me....it was on about 95% of the time....SHIT!!!!

    Here if you sucked cock you were gay, not if you had your ear pierced, it was less subtle, but more accurate way of telling icon_wink.gif

    I prefer the direct approach. At a point that's appropriate in conversation, I simple say (or correct, if presumed straight) in a matter of fact and inconsequential tone "I'm gay."

    Now they know.
    If the person I'm talking to is out, they'll probably verify it.
    If they're straight, they'll tell me.
    If they're closeted, they'll probably tell me later as I establish myself as 'safe'.
    If they're in denial, then it will be dealt with based on how they manifest their denial.

    I never trusted the 'secret signal' approach, because I was never able to determine whether or not I had the same 'handbook' as someone else.

    I just assume everyone else knows I'm gay.

    That way, if they say something that implies they think I may be straight, I can get offended.

    I do like the idea of telling the person about yourself and watch his reaction. But how often does sexuality come up in a conversation? it just sound weird out of nowhere and start talking about your "preference" while the topic could be weather.

    I remember the cutest guy i met at gym once, and he did bring up the subject that he's in a gay play to hint me. I thought to myself, I have no gay activity in my life to talk about! And I don't want to say "oh ya? I'm gay too!" lol

    I think it just drive more gay men into acting "fem" or "drama" just to set off other's gaydar. Not that anything' wrong with that. icon_wink.gif

    I find that sexuality does come up frequently and often in subtle ways. I think we are so conditioned to ignore it or for those of us from the 'old days' were used to switching pronouns.
    Now I often found myself replying to a statement like "Does your wife like that?" with "Yes, my husband does!" (back before I was divorced.) I always correct them.

    I'm gonna buy a bottle.

    But isn't there a better way to know someone without all the guesses or in person conversation? how about a wink? I've notice a lot of men do that to me.

    Not too bizarre, actually. Does no one remember "Halstins" (or was it Halstan?)?

    That worked well for some; my little sister gave me a bottle back when I was honestly str8 (good laugh 4 her!);
    I then learned a few things the hard way...lol

    It's Halston, Love. One of many factoids(though this one is definitely gayer) stuffed into my already full brain.
