             “At age 20, in summer 1959, living in an innocent pre-verbal and pre-gay dream of the
             Platonic Ideal of homomasculinity, I composed and photographed my best straight
             friend since childhood in a blond-muscle shot that Chuck Renslow, Etienne, and Bob
             Mizer could have immediately published on the covers of Mars, Triumph, and Physique
             Pictorial, and that I could have published on the cover of the “Gay Jock Sports” issue
             Drummer 20 (January 1978). My quintessential 50-year-old photograph pegs me for
             what I am and for what my writing and photography are all about.” — Jack Fritscher
