Now purple is basically associated with the LGBT crowd or being gay, etc. You see on a lot of youtube clips/meme's people make fun of Donatello having the purple bandana now, whereas back in the 80's nobody ever thought Don wearing purple was associated with that.
I thought pink was the colour associated with the LGBT crowd? Also, don't they prefer the rainbow now since it has several different colours?

Pink is the rallying color for the Susan G Comen/I love boobs crowd aka breast cancer awareness. We probably have Tinky-Winky and his(?) purse to thank for that odd association with purple. Or it might have begun in the 70's with some of the flamboyant outfits of the time- purple leisure suits, big hats, feathers and bell bottom pants....

Ah right, I forgot pink is used for breast cancer awareness.

Didn't the pink and LGBT association start during Nazi Germany? LGBTs sent to concentration camps were given pink triangles I think...
