About this site:
Ebay is an amazing place and reasource. There I found these wonderful detailed and annotated descriptions of various important and early gay publications. I felt compelled to save and share them. They are published here with the author Brad Confer's consent. They were written for the sole purpose of selling the material on Ebay and not with scholarly intent, but they are such a rich resource as is, that I present them here. It has taken me almost as much work as Brad to collect, reformat, organize and publish this information. Please write me if this site is helpful to you. If you want to contact Brad, his business is Bloomsbury Books and you can email him at firstname.lastname@example.org
Most of these issues can be found at the one National Gay & Lesbian Archives in Los Angeles, the New York Public Library, McCormick Library of Special Collections and the Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archive among other places. Online most are available through EBSCO LGBT Life - http://www.ebscohost.com/academic/lgbt-life-with-full-text

About your host Tyler:
Inspired by Nijinsky's scandalous interpretation of Igor Stravinsky's 'Rite of Spring' and photographer Richard Avedon's bold nude photograph of Nijinsky's portrayer the dancer Rudolf Nureyev.
I am incorporating design aspects, namely pattern and surface more and more into my work. The abstract shapes simultaneosly evoke both the verdant environment of leaves and the lyrical movement of the dancing figure. This graphic inspriation comes from a pioneer of sorts: the naked poet (and early porn star) Gavin Dillard. A nod to Charles Doersch too.
Small clues remain to hint at theolder painting that lurks beneath this one.
