Hard at Work
Where were you when Working Out by Charles Hix with photography by Ken Haak was published?
I ask it that way because I think for gay men who were kids or teens in 1983, that and similar — you should pardon the expression — trade books, like its precursor Looking Good (1977) and the more openly libidinous Boy Crazy by Karen Hardy (1984), were beacons of beefcake prior to the influx of mainstream male appreciation.
The book was ostensibly a guide for men looking to have supermodel bodies, subtitled The Total Shape-Up Guide for Men, but Haak's sensual black-and-white photography owed more to the closety physique mags of the '40s, '50s and '60s than to fitness. I believe it was late MuscleMag publisher Robert Kennedy who once identified how some fitness magazines seemed gay because of a subtle perception that the models were “seducible” — by men; this is what Haak's photography, like Bruce Weber's before him, exuded.
