Gekko Hayashi

Beautiful work by Gekko Hayashi a.k.a. Goji Ishihara (1923–1997). Ishihara is remembered for his macabre children’s book illustrations of demons, monsters and disasters. His work under the pseudonym Gekko Hayashi depicted scenes of same-sex romance and was featured in the Japanese gay magazine Sabu throughout the 1970s and ‘80s. These images are much softer than his alter ego’s grotesque children’s books– even the BDSM imagery has a delicate sensuality.

The House of Gay Art, 2015 Short documentary by Graham...



The House of Gay Art, 2015 
Short documentary by Graham Kolbeins

Last November, Gengoroh Tagame joined MASSIVE on a pilgrimage to The House of Gay Art. Tucked away in a quiet suburban neighborhood in Saitama Prefecture, the private museum is one of Japan’s only institutions devoted to preserving gay art. It’s a labor of love, run independently out of the home of the charming curator, and novelist Masahiro Ogizaki. The collection contains more than 150 original drawings, paintings, sculptures and photographs, and an extensive archive of rare books and magazines.
