    In the 80's, pink menswear was available. It was called salmon rather than pink, though.

    By the 1980s, a guy wearing pink was not a big deal. Hell, my kind-of-a-nerd boyfriend wore pink and lavender shirts, kind of a trademark, and he was definitely straight. So the male character liking pink might be no more than this: https://www.instagram.com/p/BrEFPFDAbai/?hl=en

    Watch the first Chris Reeve Superman movie (1978).  [Superman and Lois are standing on opposite sides of a large planter]

    Lois Lane : What color underwear am I wearing?

    Superman : [looking] Hmmm...

    Lois Lane : Oh, I'm sorry, I embarrassed you, didn't I?

    Superman : Oh, no, no, no, not at all, Miss Lane, it's just that this planter must be made of lead.

    Lois Lane : Uh, yes it is. So?

    Superman : Well, you see, I, uh, I sort of have a problem seeing through lead.

    Lois Lane : Oh, that's interesting.

    Lois Lane : [Writing] Problem seeing through lead. Hmmm. Uh, d-do you have a first name?

    Superman : What do you mean, like, uh, Ralph or something?

    Lois Lane : No, no, I mean like...

    [walks away from the planter]

    Superman : Pink.

    Lois Lane : Huh?

    Superman : Pink.

    [Lois walks back to the planter]

    Superman : Um, sorry, Miss Lane, I didn't mean to embarrass you.

    Lois Lane:  Do you like (hesitates) pink?

    Superman: I like pink very much, Lois.

    In 1918, an article from a trade publication called Earnshaw's Infants' Department, declared that, since it was derived from red, “Pink is for the boys, and blue for the girls. ... “Femininity got wrapped in pink, and so did products—from shampoos to fancy fashion.”
