SymbolsOfPride

Last edit

Summary: Overhauled

Changed:

< Let's see, we have the upside down pink and purple triangles, the rainbow flag, the blue and black flag with the red heart on the corner, the brown-shaded flag with the bear paw. There's lots of flags, and if someone wants to include pics of them that'd be sweet.
< We also
have a bunch of symbols that you can spot, some of which indicate GayPride, others just indicate homosexual status. There's even HankyCodes, which are a signal to others what forms of sexual behavior you would like to procure in.
< Queers have all sorts of cool signals to pass to each
other. Hundreds of years of closet culture does that to you, I guess.
