"Gaily Forward"

by Carlin Langley  

"Hanky Codes" signify the various handkerchief colors and fabrics that people in the gay
community can wear when they are at gay functions to give subtle indications as to what their
interests are or what they're looking for. They're worn in the back pockets of your pants and are
easy to spot IF you know what they mean!
