SF GLBT History Museum Presents Traveling Exhibition of Gay Erotic Art, 1950s-1990s  

From July to October, the GLBT History Museum will present a historical retrospective of erotic illustrations by artists who worked for gay men's magazines from the 1950s to the 1990s.

"Stroke: From Under the Mattress to the Museum Wall" originated at the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art in New York City. The San Francisco show is its only scheduled West Coast appearance.

Curated by artist Robert W. Richards, this exhibition of a largely forgotten body of work not only explores the male form, but also offers an examination of erotic fantasies as experienced through publications that were available at nearly every newsstand in America, but that men often hid under their mattresses for fear of being discovered.

We are a strong community, and when our tears have dried, our resolve will only be stronger.
