COLLECTION DESCRIPTION

Photographs documenting gay men's lives and men's bodies, styles, and activities from the 1850s to 2010 and associated magazines, programs from events, and ephemera. Includes physique and nude photography by Bruce of L.A. and others and photographs of men in the military, in athletics, in ballet, and portraits of men together. The collection exceeds 10,000 items dating to the 1860s. Many photographs are deeply personal, ranging from candid snapshots to formal 19th-century portraits and from Hollywood stars' studio portraits to 1950s physique photos, and even a few Cornell-specific items, including a photo of a man posed in the arms of the A.D. White statue on the Arts Quad. The photograph collection richly documents white gay male culture and includes some outstanding photographs of gay men and drag queens of color and of U.S. and European lesbians and women in drag.
Periodicals include mainly physique magazines and gay erotica. Also included are calendars, sound recordings, and gay-themed comic books.
