Gay Beards; The Facial Kind, Not The Companion Kind

Thanks to Kitschy Kitschy Coo, I learned that November is all about facial hair at the Smithsonian; which makes it a good time to mention Beards: An Unshaved History. There’s a great article about the book at Queerty, in which the book’s author, Kevin Clarke, writes:

When Berlin based publisher Bruno Gmünder first discussed the idea of a beard book with me, images of 1970s gay clones shot through my head; to be exact: photos I had discovered a few years earlier in the archives of the Schwule Museum Berlin while researching my last Gmünder book, Porn: From Andy Warhol to X-Tube (2011).

Clarke is also the author of Porn: From Andy Warhol to X-Tube and Glitter And Be Gay (2007). Beards: An Unshaved History also has a Facebook Page.

Oh, and if you don’t know about the companion kind of beards mentioned in the post’s title,  see here.
