67 - Gays in the Military: National Lampoon

“Guerre” by George Trow, Brian McConnachie and Henry Beard in “National Lampoon”, September 1973

With this one I may pushing the point too far. Really it’s just a parody fashion magazine about army life. However, the gossipy, precious style of a fashion mag is the clipped camp manner of a certain type of gay man. There’s not a hint of homosexuality or homoeroticism in the piece (except maybe for the cute model), but the entire tone of the parody is what we would now recognise as “Queer Eye for the Military Guy”
