It was a different time. I was 21. Same sex relationships were newly legal in the bedroom. But to approach someone anywhere else, was not. The Hanky Code was invented so that we could recognize each other and know interests. It was a way to avoid police harassment, job loss, and public shame from names being published in newspapers. We can’t go back. Stay proud! Keep moving forward!
