Bob Mizer: Physique Pictorial

Gareth Johnson is a writer who I enjoy following on Medium for many reasons. This past week on Medium he had an article entitled, Physique Pictorial continues to fuel our fantasiesThe article introduced me to Los Angeles-based photographer, Bob Mizer, who first published in 1951 an all-nude, male magazine; pretty ballsy considering the times. Over the course of his career he would end up photographing thousands of men from a variety of walks of life.

Johnson says in his article that it was Physique Pictorial that first printed the drawings of Touko Laaksone (better known as Tom of Finland) and, which helped launch his career. Mizer passed away in the early 1990s but you can read the full article from Johnson about the man and the magazine on Medium.

You can see a lot more of his work in an article from The Advocate last spring:

Vintage gay

gay menMy guess is this is the Castro in the late 1970s. Anyone have another guess?

I dedicate this weekly post, featuring vintage gay photographs, to the men and women who lived in a more critical time where being true to yourself and loving who you want wasn’t always an option and came at a great price. Do you have a photo you would like to share? Email me at
