The homosexual pioneers who move into an undesirable area, carve out a home for themselves, and transform it into an up-and-coming neighborhood, or "gayborhood."

Like canaries in a mine, if they survive, others can stay and thrive, as well.
The rapid influx of canaries served as the saving grace for a neighborhood that was otherwise doomed to a future void of bright colors and Chardonnay.

Within tight circles of friends of lash artists and professional poppers of all things to be consumed the forerunner in such activities is the canary. When the canary snuffs it, do not allow time to mourn, just run as fast as your semi-jaundiced arse will allow to a world of self-righteous sobriety.
Shit Dan the canary is dead. Better make mine a half.
