« "Invasion" of the Pines: The Consequences of Refusing Service to a Drag Queen (July 4, 1976) | Main | Celebrating Drag Names »



Hi Rob, I've just had the enormous pleasure of having a look at your site. What a gem!!! I'm a 41-year-old British guy who frequented NYC several times a year between 1996 and 2002, returning there last year for the first time in a while. After reading just two posts on your site - reflecting on HX magazine and gay life depicted in postcards, I became full of memories of my times around the City at long-gone venues such as Champs, Splash, etc. and memories of A Different Light and various other defunct bars, clubs etc.

There's a real wealth of gay heritage that I look forward to spending more time reading about on your site over the holidays. Again, thank you for taking the time to collaborate such a wealth of history, to which I am looking forward to further trips down memory lane.


Yes ! This HX magazine was an absolute take-home anytime I went to New York's Greenwich village ! It was everywhere and always free ! I still can not believe it has been out of print since 2009.....where did 8 years go ? The rival was NEXT, and that also is now no longer available. HX was glossy, informative and funny ! It had the best and satirical cover shots...wish I had saved a few copies from the late 1990's !


Hi! My name is Phillip and I was on the cover of HX in the early 2000's featuring a story on gaycolloegeparty.com and the boys of the group. I've lost my copy and do not want to lose the memories. The cover said "18 to Party!" ... can you please help me get a copy or obtain an image? Thank you!!!!
