It used to be easier to identify gay people than it is today. Now there's much more diversity in gay culture especially when you're talking about gender so it's harder to tell.

Also, with modern day technology displacing the cruising scene it is much harder to identify gay people. The art of the cruise is disappearing. In the 70s and 80s you could walk by another gay person and just the way you would look at each other; like the lingering stare, how long you held eye contact, whether there was a secondary, a double-take would be enough to tell you that person was gay.  I,f that wasn't a tell tale sign, they had other ways of communicating their gayness using semiotic language , or the language of symbols, with things like the hanky code, which a lot of this new generation haven't heard of.  The hanky code was basically a sign system using multiple color of handkerchiefs. The different represented different scenes.

For instance, if you were a gay man that was into fisting you would wear a red hanky, and depending on what side you wore the hanky on would tell the person that was looking to cruise you whether you were a top or a bottom or verse.They have hankies for water sports, scat, or drug use. Virtually any scene. You name it they had it. Also, is fairly easy to tell in the 70s that a gay person was gay by where they spent their free time.  If you were a New Yorker, people were down by the meat lockers. In Chicago it was the Belmont Rocks. In my town it was the State Park. A lot of tradition and symbol that have gone by the wayside because of modern technology. Instead of going to cruise somewhere, and try to meet somebody organically, you just pick up your smart phone and order out for dick on Grindr or Scruff.

As for lesbians, I have no idea how they meet. I think they hang out at Home Depot.

What's with today, today?

At the of the journey, I don't want to be known for what I have or what I don't or what I've accomplished. I will be proud if people say, "He was kind. He gave people grace and compassion. He held space for those who needed it and he experienced a lot of people and places. Love was his mission. He was a whore with a wicked sense of humor, and his laugh shook the world.
