Since the time of ancient Rome, as in 19th Century England, the color green indicated homosexuality.

The Green Carnation Society is an informal gathering of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered, and Friends at the Steampunk World's Fair.
Please join us to meet each other, talk, and share some drinks if that is your thing.

Bataireacht- Shillelagh and Irish Stick Fighting: Workshop
The Irish have used various sticks and cudgels as weapons of self-defence for centuries. The shillelagh is still identified with Irish popular culture to this day. By the 18th century bataireacht became increasingly associated with Irish gangs called factions. Irish faction fights involved large groups of men (and sometimes women) who engaged in melees at county fairs, weddings, funerals, or any other convenient gathering.
As the faction fights became increasingly repressed and other sports were promoted such as hurling, bataireacht slowly faded away and by the turn of the 20th century.[Although still documented sporadically- it had became mostly an underground practice, saved by a few families who still handed down their own styles.
