In 1967, ex-military man Keith St Clare became editor of "Vanguard," a radical pre-Stonewall queer magazine that fearlessly explored taboo areas of queer culture and adamantly rejected the idea of "assimilation."
A quick bite of Jayne County, America's first openly-transgender rock star whose foul-mouthed, unapologetic music inspired artists like David Bowie, Patti Smith and the Ramones. Jayne has always bucked convention to be herself.
In 1977, Jack Fritscher, an ex-seminarian, became editor-in-chief of Drummer magazine, and helped spread the once underground cultures of leather, cigar fetish, and BDSM to the wider world. This is the first of our new mini episodes called Quickies.
From the mid-1960s through the early 80s, a shocking, unapologetic new genre turned the art form of theater on its head. Three original performers of the "theater of the ridiculous"- Agosto Machado, Tony Zanetta, and Ruby Lynn Reyner, recount their wild, glitter-coated days in the spotlight.
