When Gay Rights Groups Were Still Part of the Left

When Gay Rights Groups Were Still Part of the Left | Sex History | Scoop.it

Earlier this month, Leslie Feinberg, a well-known transgender advocate and author of Stone Butch Blues, died at the age of 65. Feinberg's last words, “Remember me as a revolutionary communist,” contain the echo of a time that seems long past, when the only people who ascribed any importance at all to LGBTQ issues, apart from queers themselves, were far-left radicals, and when the oppression LGBTQ people and other minorities faced was firmly linked to class struggle and the exploitation of working people by the rich.

In EROS Magazine, July 1980 – Silent Porn Star

In EROS Magazine, July 1980 – Silent Porn Star | Sex History | Scoop.it

EROS magazine shows it’s genes, hearkening towards 1970s Penthouse style, and adequately fits the “men’s lifestyle porn” of that period. The articles are few and short, easy to read — while the photos are edgy and much more titillating than a Playboy ‘centerfold’ style of photo galleries.

Gracie Passette's insight:

Lots of images!

Gay Scruff Through The Ages

Gay Scruff Through The Ages | Sex History | Scoop.it

The moustache is the evolutionary next level to enlightenment.” -- noted gay Oscar Wilde.  Wilde, however, was more a fan of a stiff, clean upper lip, but even he had a thing for the cookie duster. Though scruff may be having something of a comeback these days, gays have been growing it out and trimming it up for millennia. From the queens of Ancient Greece to gay porn stars of the 70s, facial hair has always had a bit of a queer bent. So saddle up, kids, we’re going on a mustache ride of facial hair in gay history.
