Back In The Gay: Keith Haring Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2016-10-25 at 11.11.36 PM(Via still via CBS)

Keith Haring would've been 58 this year. I remember hearing about him while at college and loving his radiant babies, and being fascinated by his sex drive as hinted at in The Andy Warhol Diaries. He seemed a three-dimensional gay person who gave no fucks, and who spit out inspired pop art. There is no telling what he may have accomplished—and it's hard to guess since he had done so much by the time of his death to AIDS at 31 in February 1990.

Jean Malek isn't waiting for the election to be over to document the horror of the Trump/Pence ticket, publishing multiple provocative images that ugly-beautifully capture Trump's xenophobic, bloodlust and affection for grabbing that which nature did not bestow upon him.

Check out the stunning work here.

Speaking of stunning, this Slovenian-adjacent minx wins Halloween—and it's only the 26th:

1,000 Men, So Little Time: Bob Mizer Gets His Due Comments (0)

The New Yorker has a long, gossipy profile of Bob Mizer (1922-1992), the man who created the iconic gay photo service Athletic Model Guild. Daniel Wenger beautifully summarizes Mizer's particular aesthetic and his M.O. in securing models in the 1940s and beyond:

Mizer came out to his mother in the thirties, when he was a teen-ager, refusing to ask a date to the prom and taking up nude Screen Shot 2016-09-23 at 2.36.33 PMsunbathing on the garage roof. His notion of gayness was informed by a “Code of Behavior” that he recorded in his high-school diary: “More masculine at all times.” Among his models were the gay and the straight, professional bodybuilders and professional beach bums, college students and returnees from the European front. They assembled in his studio, before backdrops of Greco-Roman splendor and the Midwestern prairie, stripping down, oiling up, and—this being long before the full-frontal seventies—putting on silken posing straps, a kind of antique G-string. (The ones Mizer used were allegedly sewn by his mom.) After playing sailors and wrestlers and cowboys, the models were rewarded with sets of free snapshots, “membership cards” for the Guild, and, maybe most valuable, memories of the photo sessions, when they gazed not at Mizer but at their own images, reflected in the large mirror mounted above him.

The piece is published on the occasion of the release of a massive two-volume set of Mizer's life's work by Taschen; he famously put out a 1,000-model directory, and in fact appears to have shot upwards of 10,000 men. I'm sure he held hands with more than a few of them, too.

Mizer should be as venerated as Mapplethorpe, but is not because his art was produced in a mainstream way (a newsstand magazine called Physique Pictorial, the first U.S. gay magazine) in spite of being considered contraband by the U.S. Postal Service at various times. Also, where Mapplethorpe was seen as capturing a sex-driven scene in a post-modern way, Mizer was seen more as a perv with a camera.

Both things can be true about about men, and about many other artists.

Why Trump Is GOOD For The LGBTQ Vote, Plus: THAT Penis de Milo Statue! Comments (0)

i-D has it right in stating that having a raving loon like Trump on the Republican ticket is only going to galvanize LGBTQ forces to vote against his sorry ass.

Speaking of his sorry ass—and other regrettables—check out the statue that popped up in various cities. God, I'd love to be the one responsible for showing this to Mr. Small Hands.
