Vintage Gay Graphics From the DuBek Collection

Underground Gay Graphics From Before Stonewall

Lust Unearthed presents over 200, neverbefore-published explicit gay male images from the private collection of Ambrose DuBek, from a period when such material was rare and indeed illegal. Gay porn for the thinking man, Lust Unearthed will beguile and arouse.

A wealth of previously unpublished “obscene” images from the queer pre-Stonewall underground that broadens and tantalizes the view of queer culture. Waugh’s narrative explores cultural and erotic dynamics and the social context in which such images were created.
