What's Gay About the Irish?

Before you get all over my case, it's OK, I'm Irish. And pretty damn gay. Here is a short but pungent list of gay Irish stuff.

1. Oscar Wilde. Yup, you think he came by all that wit and facility with words on his own? No! It was heredity!

2. Green Carnations. The helpful folks at Oscar Wilde Tours tell us this: "In 1892, Wilde had one of the actors in Lady Windermere’s Fan wear a green carnation on opening night, and told a dozen of his young followers to wear them too. Soon the carnation became an emblem of Wilde and his group." In fact, if you ask us, the whole color green is a little gay.
