: My parents used to say "he was as happy as a sissy in a cc camp"? Any idea what a CC Camp is?

It was a federal (U.S.) public works project created in 1933. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Civilian_Conservation_Corps The idea being that a homosexual man would like being in an all-male environment.
