            Gay liberation in the 1970s required the invention and coining of many new gay words
            such as homomasculinity to deal with the uncloseted concepts of the love that formerly
            dared not speak. In order to fill Drummer, Fritscher and other authors had to pioneer a
            new gay linguistics beyond Polari. Drummer was akin to the way that Lytton Strachey said
            the word semen, and Alfred Jarry said the word merde. Drummer salonista Claude Duvall’s
            Noh Oratorio Society shocked San Francisco with Jarry’s scatalogical Ubu Cycle at Studio
            Rhino, February 1983. Studio Rhino publicity kit. (continued bottom next page)
