Umm...

I live in the gay neighborhood of San Francisco, so... I can probably get everything rainbow, but actually own nothing.

It's funny you'd bring this

It's funny you'd bring this up, because I'm not all "WOO GAY PRIDE RAINBOWSSS" but I totally have all this rainbow stuff.

I have:
-> A Belt
-> A Hat
-> Shoelaces
-> Shoes
-> A Bandanna
-> A Shirt

I'd like a lighter, as I use them. A rainbow lighter, wow. Yeah.

I currently have no rainbow stuff

Yeah the title pretty much says it all
But some of the stuff u posted sounds cool
Do peolpe wear rainbow paraphenalia if they're not gay cause I know some people that have shoelaces and other rainbow items but Im not sure if they're gay?

wilma wonka's picture

um, i think straights do too

I got a rainbow guitar stap, it came with a crapy travel harp i bought to take with me to camp. The strap is supposed to be used as a shoulder strap so that you can play while standing but i find it really uncomfortable. Anyways, if rainbow stuff comes with a harp then i doubt that rainbow always equals gay. Why should it, rainbows are too awsome to be limited to gays.

Let's see... I have a rainbow guitar strap, a rainbow necklace, and rainbow shoelaces (which I've used as belts, hair ties, necklaces, and bracelets, but never as shoelaces). I have a venus necklace and a lot of gay bumper stickers that aren't rainbow... I <3 my shoelaces though.

Be yourself. 'Cause if you're busy being somebody else, who's gonna be you?

I wear my rainbow wristband

I wear my rainbow wristband to work, and put my rainbow pen on my collar where my buttons are so that people can see it. I used to wear my rainbow dog tag too, but it gave me a rash on my chest, so now it just sits in my bedroom.

My mum wears a rainbow keyring on her keys, which was mine, but I don't have a keyring so she wanted it.

I have a pride wristband

I have a rainbow wristband that says pride on it. Thing is I didn't buy it, my mom did back when those livestrong bracelets were really in and didn't put two and two together Rainbow + pride = gay pride. Sometimes she's so oblivious it's scary.

at the pool where i work, in the aquatic co-ordinator's office, there is this big rainbow fish hanging from the ceiling. it has stripes of every color. i call it "the gay fish". i have no idea where you can buy something like that... but it's adorable! : )

Hm...

I have a rainbow feather boa, and a shirt with rainbow penguins on it. I don't really like wearing rainbow in general though. I'm more of a one or two colours at a time sort of person.

I've never really worn rainbow,

although I really adore stripes, when they are well-placed.
I suggest getting rainbow rain-boots. I nearly did, but instead settled on blue stripes.

I have a rainbow umbrella, which I got at a toy store, although at the time I bought it for the stripes, and not for the symbols.

I also weaved a necklace from embriodery threads. That was very much fun.

Oh, and one of the pots that holds one of my plants I painted rainbow on a whim, because my watercolors were sitting there, along with some water.

I saw a young woman's room who made a rainbow from collage on her wall- she put all the red things in one area, then orange, then yellow, etc... It looks fantastic. I'm planning on doing that in my next dorm room, as I'm almost done in this one and there's really no point to making it now.

At this very moment...
I am wearing a black shirt that says:
I <3 GIRLS
and the heart is rainbow.
I have a pin/button that is rainbow, and one that has a rainbow and says 'Whatever happens over the rainbow stays over the rainbow"
Rainbow toe socks, rainbow belt, rainbow hat, fingerless gloves, umbrella, skirt, stockings, etc.
I have lots of rainbow stuff.

jeff's picture

Hmm...

Not all lesbians can wear that shirt, though. I've seen a lot that are greater than three girls. :-)

where do you buy rainbow/pride stuff? do normal stores sell it?

Hmm...

Never worn at the same time, one hopes. There is the gay stereotype of fashion sense that is worth preserving, no?

lol, yes that wonderful stereotype XD
i've had most of my rainbow stuff on me at one time, but that was purely for the look of horror on my mothers face, i made sure the belt i have stood out XD

Lol-taire's picture

er no

Rainbows/ other pride symbols are the antithesis of what I'd want to wear.
I get the point (but more like a homing device for easy recognition than a fashion statement), but it seems a bit cynical of retailers to slap a rainbow onto any old bit of tat and sell it in the name of pride.

Anyway, I was going to say I have nothing, but actualy I have a pair of girly boxers with rainbows on them. They're not actually gay rainbows though, just little rainbows and some little stars. It's very whimsical underwear. Oh and some pajama bottoms with the same design.
