Once savaged in straight summer camp discourse as a sure marker of homosexuality, the single earring has become a contemporary badge of pride. Now you can take your quear-ings from your lobes to your walls!
The Cross – For the gay who saw Madonna mount herself on a crucifix during the 2006 Confessions tour and thought: I want to be that. “I don’t really, like, believe in God though,” many of the cross-sporting queers informed us. Dangling from the right ear in matte black or silver, the cross earring suggests a dungeon-based art practice, a working knowledge of George Michael, a warning of a childhood steeped in Catholicism—and an adulthood sorely devoid of therapy. Goes well with a late 90s, Trainspotting Caesar haircut.
