THE TRUCKER CAP

DNA Magazine - - THE USA ISSUE -

Make the trucker cap great again! The “trucker hat” orig­i­nated in the 1960s when US feed and farm­ing sup­ply com­pa­nies sent free caps to farm­ers, truck driv­ers and other ru­ral work­ers as a pro­mo­tional give­aways.

Once the gays got their hands on the gar­ment, though, it turned it into some­thing glo­ri­ous. Gl­itzed up, masc’d out ver­sions of the trucker hat be­came an iconic piece of head­wear seen on dance floors and in gay porn scenes the world over.

The trend for wear­ing the caps back­wards, ac­cord­ing to some style his­to­ri­ans, orig­i­nated with rent boys, who turned the cap around to stop it get­ting in the way while de­liv­er­ing a blowjob.

And then… Trump fucked ev­ery­thing, de-sex­ing the gar­ment with his garbage “Make Amer­ica

Great Again” slo­gan.

Gays, it’s time we brought the sexy back. You know what to do.
