There was an Evergreen Press book of dubious authenticity that contained
references to the "gay life" of prostitutes in late 19th cent. London that
certainly agrees withs Al's information.
Here's something from NYC from the early 60's. A billboard for Vic Tanney
(gyms/muscle building) back in those days of Katy Winters supposedly was
hit with the graffiti "Now I'm Gay and Unafraid," the slogan of Arrid
Extra Dry Roll-On deodorant.
Another reason to have gay connotations for gay -- wonderfully witty humor.
