    How to use "Nosegay" in context?

    Nosegay is a term for a person who bears a Gay/Lesbian/Bisexual/Transgender (GLBT) flag on their nose during Pride parades and other events. It has come to symbolize queerness and pride.

    The term originated partly as a joke and partly as an act of solidarity with the GLBT community. Many people who carry nosegays feel that it is an important symbol of their identity and their right to express themselves freely.

    Some people believe that the nosegay tradition began in the 1960s and 70s in San Francisco, where the GLBT community was very active.
