I have grown up believing that while moments in our life may not define us, they certainly do give meaning to the lives we lead. So today, I am going to share with you the story of how I turned my very first boyfriend gay.

The handkerchief code also known as the hanky code , the bandana code , and flagging  is a system of color-coded cloth handkerchief or bandanas for non-verbally communicating one's interests in sexual activities and fetishes. The color of the handkerchief identifies a particular activity, and the pocket it is worn in left or right identifies the wearer's preferred role in that activity. For example, a dark blue handkerchief indicates an interest in anal sex , and wearing it in the left pocket indicates a preference for being the insertive partner. The wearing of colored bandanas around the neck as a practical accessory was common in the mid- and late-nineteenth century among cowboys , steam railroad engineers , and miners in the Western United States. It is thought that the wearing of bandanas by gay men originated in San Francisco after the Gold Rush , when, because of a shortage of women, men dancing with each other in square dances developed a code wherein the man wearing the blue bandana took the male part in the square dance, and the man wearing the red bandana took the female part these bandanas were usually worn around the arm or hanging from the belt or in the back pocket of one's jeans.
