HOUSTON LGBT HISTORY: TWO was published by Rick Kerr, and the office address given was that of the Melody Room (457 Church Street, Toronto), one of two gay clubs he owned (the other being the Music Room). The magazine name was obviously inspired by the American homophile publication “TWO (Truth Will Out),” a supplement to the magazine One, which began in 1953. With issue #6 the subtitle was dropped from the covers. The publisher name was initially Gayboy Publishing, and quickly changed to Kamp Publishing LTD. The magazine’s content was eclectic, with articles, local drag revue coverage, stories, and lots of teen model physique photography.
