ELSKA: Issue (05) was made in Taipei, Taiwan. It’s our first edition to leave Europe, and we chose what’s fast becoming Asia’s LGBT capital as its setting. As a country whose identity can be associated with defiance against Chinese communism, Taiwan’s spirit of freedom spreads into the gay community, with one of the most vibrant and open scenes on the Asian continent. The response from Taipei’s local boys was so great that this became the hardest issue to edit down.
Not to be overlooked, showcasing Asian men, especially in a way that highlights their sexuality, is still a rarity among gay publications, or among all publications for that matter. Despite the bombardment of advice that no one would buy an Asian issue, we did it anyway, because of course Elska believes that all men are beautiful, sexy, and totally lovable. “No fats, no fems, no Asians” – fuck that!

Episode 1, February 16, 1983, Lesbian & Gay History
JEFFREY SCHWARZ: In 1983, Vito Russo produced and co-hosted “Our Time,” a television series focused on the gay community. The thirteen episodes that ran on public television station WNYC tackled important issues such as gay history, drag, alcoholism, race, and a famous episode at the dawn of the AIDS crisis featuring Larry Kramer. On-air guests included luminaries such as Harry Hay, Rita Mae Brown, Tennessee Williams, Harvey Fierstein, Quentin Crisp, Lily Tomlin and many other notable public figures.
30 years after “Our Time” originally aired, we are able to share this groundbreaking series with the world. With the exception of two missing episodes, we have posted each show in its entirety for scholars, historians, and a whole new generation who may not be familiar with Vito’s legacy.
This is the Final Episode, Episode 13, May 9, 1983 featuring Lily Tomlin (as Mrs. Judith Beasley) & Harvey Fierstein backstage at “Torch Song Trilogy”
