After Dark: Magazine of Entertainment May 1977
28cm x 21.5cm. 98 pages, illustrations, a few colour. Pictorial saddle-stapled wrappers.
Single issue of American performing arts, entertainment, and under the radar gay magazine, After Dark. Running from 1968 to 1983 After Dark featured stories on theatre, film, dance, performance art, music, and the people who starred in such productions. While not overtly erotic or described as a gay magazine, the magazine was often playfully erotic (usually thanks to staff photographer Kenn Duncan), and the readership largely comprised gay men, especially evident by the advertisements a plenty for gay venues, books, movies, and fashion. In this issue: Super Special Birthday Issue – Mae West, Egon von Furstenberg, Ransom Wilson, Babes on Broadway, Anna Sosenko, a collection of Hamlets, and more.
