Pink Ink: The Golden Era for Gay and Lesbian Magazines

Author(s): Bill Calder

Literary Studies | Australian/Aotearoa | History

The tapping of typewriters first lifted the secrecy around homosexuality, and a vibrant array of voices was soon heard. The publishers of gay magazines and newspapers were a diverse and lively lot. Some wanted to publicise where the best parties were held; some to fight the political battle; and others to show new ways for lesbians and gay men to live their lives. The story of these magazines and newspapers is the story of society’s changing attitudes, and indeed, the changing gay world. This book traces the evolution of Australia’s gay and lesbian publications from smudgy porn sold in brown paper bags to glossy coffee-table magazines proudly on display; from gestetnered newsletters to an industry publishing millions of newspapers each year – that is, until the Internet changed it all.
