Bachelor Magazine: The Dandy’s Handbook

Here’s a magazine we buy if it were at the newsstand today. BACHELORwas an early version of The Advocate – it was aimed at artistic and bold gay men and promoted “dandyism” (LOVE that!) and “athletic masculinity.” (Ho-hum.) Male celebrities who appeared on the cover were Tyrone Power, Cary Grant, and Buster Crabbe (Tarzan, Flash Gordon) in a swimsuit. Don’t know how long this magazine lasted but we’d give anything to see an entire issue.
