The Gay Blade was a men’s clothing store with locations in Milwaukie, Oregon and Salem, Washington. The Milwaukie store was located in The First State Bank of Milwaukie Building until 1985. The store had a drinking fountain installed with its memorable character on the front.
At one point the name was changed to The Blade due to the widely accepted definition of the word “gay” changing.
