Many queer bars, which could not really exist officially, or they’d get shut down, used code names. Often the first word of the bar’s name was a color, and the second word was a bird. This was known as the “bird circuit” – you could visit any urban area in the country and usually find a “Blue Parrot” or a “Purple Parrot” or a “Black Swan” or such like.
