Gay: Left or Right Ear?


By the late 1980s, teenage boys pierced their left ears as a fashion statement, leaving their right ears unpierced in acknowledgement of the gay-related symbolism involved.
“Left is right and Right is wrong.” Traditionally, in the late 1960s a right-side piercing identified a man as gay and left-side as straight.
Straight men should avoid getting this ear pierced if they wish to carry onward their straightness.
Right=GAY, Left=Straight, Both=Normal.
Left is right and Right is wrong
Some people swear that it is the left, others swear that it is the right. In most of the western world, it’s been OK for any guy to get his left ear pierced, without it meaning anything, for many, many years.
In some places with longer traditions of ear piercing the right ear is sometimes customary.
