New Acquisitions



We have been busy this summer negotiating the acquisition of many gift collections, large and small. This week we were thrilled to recieve the backfiles of Pinups from photographer, editor, and provocateur Christopher Schulz. Pinups is a gorgeous, smart, tender new magazine that shows the beauty of everyday gay men. The aesthetic has been called "post-bear," but it's actually very 1970's. It reminds me of After Dark and New York City gay street culture in the early days of Gay Liberation. Pinups is also, really, a very smart piece of conceptual art pretending to be a magazine. Check it out.

We are also working on acquiring a complete backfile of HX and Next magazines, a collection of Japanese erotica, a visual diary, and a historic drag performance collection, among many others. These are all the kinds of key historical materials that will be needed to understand LGBT life in our times. More to come as things are finalized.

Comment is a question: does your LGBT collection have a complete run of Christopher Street Magazine [aka "That new Magazine"} which was published in NYC from 1977 etc.??
