MESSAGE FROM THE PUBLISHER
2024 marks the 50th Anniversary of Blueboy® — the first nationally and internationally distributed gay men's magazine!
Due to issues stemming from the pandemic, our relaunch was delayed several times as a result of factors that were outside of our control. This affected our previous publication date and our ability to have it in the hands of our customers.
I appreciate your continued support along this journey — and excited to announce the relaunch of Blueboy® magazine as a commemorative issue celebrating our 50th anniversary.
BLUEBOY® GOLDEN 50th ANNIVERSARY COMMEMORATIVE ISSUE features editorials, artwork, fashion layouts, short stories, interviews, vintage Blueboy® archival content and a male nude pictorial — reflecting upon our rich legacy as well as resonating the 'golden era' of gay life during the 1970s.
Each BLUEBOY GOLDEN 50th ANNIVERSARY COMMEMORATIVE ISSUE is a numbered copy in a limited edition of 2, 2024 copies. Once this edition is sold out, we will place the original work copy into the BACAF archives.
Online versions of this issue will not be available. We made this decision in order to evoke the nostalgic thrill of what it was once like going to the newsstand and savoring the latest copy.
All customers who have active pre-orders will receive a beautiful copy of the BLUEBOY® GOLDEN 50th ANNIVERSARY COMMEMORATIVE ISSUE.
Your order of our iconic magazine serves as a commitment to supporting the ongoing work of Blueboy Archives and Cultural Arts Foundation. A portion of the proceeds benefits The Blueboy® Archives and Cultural Arts Foundation— an LGBTQ+ 501 (c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit organization committed to the preservation and promotion pf Blueboy® archives for historical, educational and research purposes.
Love and Appreciation,
Publisher and Editor-in-Chief
