To the Editor:
Thanks for this wonderful piece, David Noh — I like your writing a lot (“The Beauty of Men,” Apr. 30). I loved Robert Richard’s commentary about the show — there was actually a lot of glamour in that period of queer life and art, centered on the 1970s and certainly through the 1980s, even as AIDS spread. Actually, AIDS helped some of these magazines for a while, as men found their “relationships” with fantasy (OK, we call that jerking off) a lot safer than in-the-raw encounters. Additional comments about this great show can be seen in my piece on Huffington Post at tinyurl.com/q8uym74. I think both pieces tell a lot of the story of this fabulous show.
