Barazoku was the first and longest-running monthly magazine for gay men in Japan. This is an illustration by Sadao Hasegawa, taken from the magazine. It’s not too explicit, but the phallic symbolism is quite abundant.
But I flatout dislike the term queer in terms of self-identification.
Same-Gender-Loving is too clinical for me.
Same with MSM.
I would LOVE to call myself a member of the Tribe of Roses (barazoku) but I’m not Japanese. :(
I was all set to go with androphile, and I’m still kind of attached to the term, but I found out that the terms has been kind of co-opted by anti-femme gays who want to remove femininity from homosexuality. Which is impossible.
