Who's a Pretty Boy, Then?: One Hundred and Fifty Years of Gay Life in Pictures by James Gardiner
Paperback: 240 pages
Publisher: Serpent's Tail (June 1, 1998)
Amazon: Who's a Pretty Boy, Then?: One Hundred and Fifty Years of Gay Life in Pictures
James Gardiner's eclectic collection of gay male photos, postcards, play bills, theater posters, and other ephemera is an unguided tour through 100 years of gay male life and culture. Gardiner has wisely followed no specific historical or literary plan--although the photos are arranged in general chronological order--and the effect is striking. As you page through the hundreds of images, you are forced to make your own connections, construct your own sense of reality. Who's a Pretty Boy Then? is a historical and artistic tour de force that brings gay male history alive.
