What Gay Women Wear, 1971 Images

As promised, here are the two photos that went along with the article from Rags 1971.

Gay Girl 1971

Jill Bray, gay girl in 1971

Gay girl 1971 with her dog

Susan Walsh, furniture refinisher and gay girl

The girl in the hat has a pretty groovy look, don’t you think?

I searched for all the women online to see if any were still around. The only one I was able to find information about was Wanda Van Dusen, who committed suicide in 1995.

If you have information about any of these women, please let me know. A retrospective interview would be a most amazing project.

    The photos in your post are not working, but I remember that article vividly from when it was first published. It was the inspiration for my subsequent series of articles “what the well dressed dyke will wear” published first in Cowrie Magazine and then continued in DYKE A Quarterly. Rags was a wonderful alt fashion magazine edited by Mary Peacock. I’d love to see it again. Thanks so much. Cheers. Liza Cowan
