Merge[edit]

Should there be a merge with the 1890s article? Both of these are very short, and could probably use the expansion. Just make the "Gay Nineties" a subject heading within the 1890s article. JohnnyRush10 22:20, 22 March 2007 (UTC)

This article is more about the 20th-century cultural perception of the 1890's than it is about the 1890's themselves... AnonMoos (talk) 14:53, 20 August 2008 (UTC)

Labeling Decades[edit]

Several Decades have garnered names, notably the Gay Nineties and the Roaring Twenties. Less known are the Threadbare Thiries and the Flying (or turbulent) Forties and the Nifty (or fabulous) Fifties. It would be nice to have a page on this general nomenclature and a reference to it from each page on a specific decade. -- 04:31, 10 June 2007 User:Dpackman

Attire[edit]

There should be something about stereotypical gay '90's attire, from the point of view of the mid 20th-century at least (e.g. straw boater hats, striped shirts with arm garters, and handlebar mustaches for men, dance hall outfits for women). Barbershop quartets formerly sometimes kind of played on gay 90's stereotypes (don't know whether they still do...). AnonMoos (talk) 14:53, 20 August 2008 (UTC)

Yeah and rainbows and pink. Oh and a construction worker, an indian, and a cop. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 129.139.1.68 (talk) 19:10, 8 October 2009 (UTC)
Think you're a little confused about the meaning of the word "gay" in this context... AnonMoos (talk) 20:41, 6 November 2009 (UTC)

Farrell's[edit]

Farell's ice cream parlours kind of had a Gay 90's concept: http://www.farrellsusa.com/story.html , http://www.happyitis.biz/History/chapter08.html etc. -- AnonMoos (talk) 04:30, 21 August 2008 (UTC)

TV Tropes[edit]

TV Tropes has some interesting info, though probably not acceptable as a Wikipedia source: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TheGayNineties -- AnonMoos (talk) 02:19, 15 January 2017 (UTC)

support for introductory statement that the economic crisis was due to high tarriffs.[edit]

The middle sentence of the second paragraph in the lead section reads like this:

  An economic crisis developed in the beginning of the decade because of high tariffs and the introduction of low-valued silver coinage to counter growing inflation.[3]

However the footnote points to a broken link that looks like it was originally some video not specifically about economics.

Now the sentence may very well be true, or maybe not. But i think it would merit an updated link, hopefully to a better source (something maybe more about historical econometrics). And a cross reference to other explanatory articles would also help.

(After all, there were high tariffs throughout most of the 19th century, coupled with enormous economic growth in non-war time.) Son of eugene (talk) 04:32, 23 October 2017 (UTC)

It's not that relevant to the article, so I just removed the sentence... AnonMoos (talk) 07:07, 23 October 2017 (UTC)
