According to good ole Wikipedia:

"The colour mauve became associated with homosexuality because well known figures in the art world during the 1890s--a decade that was called the Mauve Decade--were gay such as author Oscar Wilde and artist Aubrey Beardsley."
... followed by yet another anecdote about his sensitive crimes in a punt with a chap called Norman, who had red hair and a book of poetry stained with the butter drips from crumpets.
