MEATZINE: In the Autumn of 2016 London gay pinup zine meat travelled to Berlin to photograph some of gorgeous men in a fitting tribute to one of the most free and open gay cities in Europe.
This March the results of 4 days and 17 shoots in the homes of these gorgeous me, meat Berlin will be published by Photographer Adrian Lourie.
Adrian, who first published Meat in 2010, explained that he was “tired of the body shaming that goes on within the gay community.” Adding that his photography “celebrate’s the bodies of ‘ordinary’ gay men.”
Heading to Berlin is meat’s third outing from the UK after sell out issues photographed in San Francisco (meat SF) in 2013 and Paris (meat Paris) in 2016. As Adrian explains “Meat is very much about regular British men but it is incredibly poplular in outside of the UK, so it’s lovely to have a chance to meet some fantastic men from different cities across Europe and show that as gay men wherever we live, we have more in common than the things that make us different.”
In two editions you can enjoy an eclectic and diverse mix of prime German beef in their undies or less.

AFTERNOON AT FLUGHAFENSEE see the whole set here @ SDP
with ROWLAND BYASS photography by RON AMATO exclusively for Summer Diary/ FLUGHAFENSEE, BERLIN
So I really love my digital diary on Instagram… posting images (taken by myself mostly) keeps my creative juices flowing and informs me of my obsessions (#frombehind, #sebby, #fromtheside, #makingoutfits, #fromthefront) and my daily routines. I’m never on any expensive tropical vacation or showing off my (non-existent) 8 pack at the gym. I’m pretty much hanging with my cat Sebastian, making outfits at work and taking pictures of men on the street. You will seriously learn more about me here than at Sissydude.com. One Sissydude follower actually messaged me to tell me how boring I was. Well, fuck him! I’m definitely not “exciting” but I know damn well I’m not boring, thank you very much. XXXO

"Medallion," by Gluck (August 13, 1895 – January 10, 1978), depicts the artist (right) and their lover, Nesta Obermer, 1937. Born into a wealthy British family as Hannah Gluckstein, Gluck rose to prominence in the 1920s and 1930s for portraits and floral prints. From the start of Gluck's career, they insisted on being referred to only as Gluck–"no prefix, suffix, or quotes"–and they resigned from an artists' cooperative that identified the artist as "Miss Gluck." Gluck showed their work only at solo exhibitions, refusing to identify with other artists, particular schools of art, or artistic movements. Gluck is best known for "Medallion" (1937) (pictured), a dual portrait with Nesta Obermer. According to biographer Diana Souhami, the artist was inspired after they attended a production of Mozart's "Don Giovanni" with Obermer: "…they sat in the third row and [Gluck] felt the intensity of the music fused them into one person and matched their love." "Medallion" later was used as the cover of a popular edition of Radclyffe Hall's "The Well of Loneliness." In the 1950s, fueled by dissatisfaction with the quality of available artist's paints, Gluck started a decades-long campaign to increase quality that led ultimately to the British Standards Institution adopting a new standard for oil paints. Gluck died on January 10, 1978, at the age of eighty-two. #lgbthistory #lgbtherstory #lgbttheirstory #lgbtpride #QueerHistoryMatters #HavePrideInHistory #Gluck
"Gay is Good," pioneer Craig Rodwell, New York City, October 14, 1969. Photo by Fred W. McDarrah. On August 12, 1968, forty-eight years ago today, in the only unanimous vote of a contentious meeting of representatives of the twenty-six gay rights organizations that made up the North American Conference of Homophile Organizations (NACHO), delegates formally adopted pioneer Frank Kameny's phrase "Gay Is Good" as NACHO’s official slogan. The resolution, drafted by Kameny, provided that "because many individual homosexuals…suffer from diminished self-esteem, doubts and uncertainties as to their personal worth…; and…are in need of psychological sustenance to bolster and support a positive and affirmative attitude toward themselves and their homosexuality…; and because it would seem to be very much a function of [NACHO] to attempt to replace a wishy-washy negativism toward homosexuality with a firm no-nonsense positivism…; and because the Negro community has approached similar problems and goals with some success by the adoption of the slogan: 'Black Is Beautiful'…, it is hereby adopted as a motto for NACHO that GAY IS GOOD." Frank Kameny, who was responsible for a countless number of gay rights victories in his fifty-plus years of activism, later wrote that "if I'm remembered for only one thing, I would like it to be for having coined 'Gay is Good'"; the phrase is inscribed on Kameny's headstone. #lgbthistory #lgbtherstory #lgbttheirstory #lgbtpride #QueerHistoryMatters #HavePrideInHistory #GayIsGood #FrankKameny #CraigRodwell #FredWMcDarrah
Gay Games swimmers (including Richard Hunter and Richard Boner, foreground), Gay Games I, San Francisco, August 1982. Photo c/o Gay Games Blog. The first Gay Games, held in 1982, saw 1,300 gay and lesbian athletes and nearly 10,000 spectators converge upon San Francisco for a celebration of sport, competition, and pride. Initially called the Gay Olympic Games, the United States Olympic Committee successfully sued to preclude the use of the word "Olympic." The same year, a number of other Olympic organizations–including the "Crab Cooking Olympics," the "Diaper Olympics," and the "Rat Olympics"–were allowed to use "Olympic" without liability. #lgbthistory #lgbtherstory #lgbttheirstory #lgbtpride #queerhistorymatters #haveprideinhistory #rio2016 #olympics #gaygames
Radclyffe Hall (August 12, 1880 – October 7, 1943), c. 1920s. Marguerite Radclyffe-Hall, who was born one hundred and thirty-six years ago today, was an English poet and novelist; Hall's novel, "The Well of Loneliness" (1928), generally is considered the first modern novel to present lesbianism as natural and deserving of tolerance, if not understanding and acceptance. In 1907, Hall met and fell in love with Mabel Veronica Batten; as Hall explored her sexuality, she took on a more traditionally masculine appearance and went by the nickname "John." In 1908, she published a book of poems, "A Sheaf of Verses," that included "Ode to Sappho," the last verse of which read: "Beloved Lesbian! we would not dare claim/ By that same tear fond union with thy lot;/ Yet 'tis enough, if when we breathe thy name/ Thy soul but listens, and forgets us not." During World War I, Hall fell in love with Batten's cousin, Una Troubridge, and, upon Batten's death, the couple moved in together; the relationship lasted until Hall's death. After a series of lesser-known novels, "The Well of Loneliness" was published in 1924, sparking an international outcry over its lesbian themes–deemed "moral poison" by James Douglas, editor of London's Sunday Express. Radclyffe Hall died of colon cancer on October 7, 1943; she was sixty-three. #lgbthistory #lgbtherstory #lgbttheirstory #lgbtpride #queerhistorymatters #haveprideinhistory #radclyffehall
"HOMOSEXUELEN ZIJN GEEN KRIMINELEN (HOMOSEXUALS ARE NOT CRIMINALS)," activists protest Anita Bryant, Amsterdam, Netherlands, June 25, 1977. Photo by Hans Peters. According to historians Judith Schuyf and Andre Krouwel, "[r]emarkably, it was a foreign event, rather than domestic developments, that triggered the first large public manifestation of the Dutch gay and lesbian movement. In 1977, former beauty queen Anita Bryant forced the city of Miami, Florida, to hold a referendum on its antidiscrimination law. As a result, Miami's gay rights law was struck down by a seventy percent majority. In reaction to these events, gays and lesbians took to the streets of Amsterdam on 25 June 1977" (pictured). #lgbthistory #lgbtherstory #lgbttheirstory #lgbtpride #queerhistorymatters #haveprideinhistory #europride2016 #iamsterdam

"DISABILITY PRIDE" — "WE CAN'T PARK HERE BECAUSE YOU DID," Eric von Schmetterling representing ADAPT, March on Washington for Lesbian, Gay and Bi Equal Rights, Washington, D.C., April 25, 1993. Photo © Fred W. McDarrah. ADAPT (formerly Americans Disabled for Accessible Public Transit and Americans Disabled Attendant Programs Today), established in the 1970s in Denver, is a grassroots organization within the disability rights movement that emphasizes direct action to bring greater visibility to the fight for the rights of Americans with disabilities. On July 26, 1990, twenty-six years ago today, as a result of the work of organizations like ADAPT, President George H.W. Bush signed into law the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). While disability rights advocates emphasize that much work remains, the ADA widely was considered a strong first step toward the ultimate goal of equal access for Americans with physical and mental impairments. #lgbthistory #lgbtherstory #lgbttheirstory #lgbtpride #queerhistorymatters #haveprideinhistory

NYT: The British fashion stylist IB Kamara, originally from Sierra Leone, and the South African photographer Kristin Lee-Moolman have collaborated on a project titled “2026,” which addresses heteronormative attitudes to self-expression through fashion. The photographs imagine what men’s wear may look like in 10 years, through the use of fabrics rescued from garbage bins and thrift shops in Johannesburg and made into contemporary garments.
“I wanted to create a utopia where you can be whatever you want to be, without emphasis on masculinity or sexuality,” Mr. Kamara said last week, as he put the finishing touches to the large-scale photographic prints of young African men in dresses now hanging from the walls of Somerset House, one of Britain’s grandest palaces. “I wanted men, in particular black men, to just be able to be and breathe like every other type of man has been able to breathe for centuries, without the pressure and policing of black masculinity lingering over them.”
