I know the ear you wear your ear rings on doesn't MEAN your gay. I heard this when I was younger and thus have a ear ring on my left ear. I'm just wondering if the gay community uses ear rings on the right ear to identify if another person is gay. I'm not really in the gay community (at all) yet because I live in a hickish small city (no gay bars or anything) and I'm not sure if there even is a gay community (no GLA in my school either) so I don't really know these things. And I just came out of the closet this year. I'm hoping to be more part of the gay community when I move out in 2 years and go to Vancouver. Anyways back on topic, do gays use ear rings as an identification of any sort? and if not is there anything we use to identify each other without doing anything that would be obvious to often homophobic heterosexuals?
