By 1966 when DSI published the fourth edition of Butch, the legal status of male nude photography was in a state of flux across the USA. As early as 1962 that great pioneer of expressive freedom and gay rights, Chuck Renslow of Kris Studio, had won a court case based on the fact that a nude photo he published had pretty much the same content as a Chicago museum piece. That opened doors, but only in the parts of the country where the Chicago Circuit Court of Appeals had jurisdiction. There was a confusing patchwork of legality when DSI put out the magazine that I am posting in it's entirety today. There is full frontal nudity, but there are also posing strap photos, semi-nudes, and quite a bit of text justifying freedom of expression. I consider this publication to be a pivotal moment in both Gay History and the history of freedom of expression. I would not have this material were it not for the exceptional generosity of Tim T. who donated it to me. Thanks a million, Tim!
