WHAT HANKY SHOULD YOU FLAG FOR “LEADERSHIP”?   

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

While fun and function might have merged to create the so-called “hanky code”, it provided us a short hand to determine what folks were “in to”. Some of the colors are pretty universally adopted while others are positively arcane. None of them managed to overcome the difficulty of trying to determine slight color differences on the patio of a dark bar (dark pink, magenta, fuchsia….FUCSHIA really?). Folks who are into Leather Leadership deserve to have their own hanky.

 Of course it could be argued that those who take on the task of “trying to herd cats” as our keynote speaker Guy Baldwin like to call the task of leather leadership, are already well represented in the hanky code. Clearly there is an element of masochism (black) and those who serve often feel tied up by their efforts (grey). Who can argue that leaders get pissed off and sometimes pissed on (yellow)? What leader has not felt bitten (hound’s-tooth) when their best plans fall through? Sometimes our efforts seem solitary (white). When your’re sweating out the details of the latest club meeting or event you are the dream of someone who flags magenta and how often have you been asked to do anything at anytime (orange). When your out their selling your soul for sponsorship or advertising , you have to admit there are elements of hunter green.

 Before the hanky code, it was a tradition to wear one’s keys to indicate a preference. Leather Leadership XV is a chance to polish off the keys you have and get new ones to help you as you lead our diverse and sometimes challenging leather community. Come on…you know if you stay home you’ll just be missing out on the fun and there is no hanky for that.
