I think Kerouac was bi but deeply troubled by his gay side, probably due to his traditional Catholic upbringing. He probably never really accepted that part of himself, though he accepted it in his close friends, i.e., Allen Ginsberg and others. In his writing in "Visions of Cody" and "On the Road" I kind of get the feeling Kerouac had a bit of a crush on Neal Cassidy, though it was never consumated. (Although apparently Allen got a taste of Neal.) Kerouac became an alcoholic and the photo in R74 shows him in his decline. He only lived to be 47.

Someone posted a photo of Peter Orlovsky above. He was part of the circle of "Beat Poets" in the San Francisco poetry "renaissance" of th mid 1950s. I'm pretty sure Peter Orlovsky and Allen Ginsberg were boyfriends, possibly for a long time. These guys were pioneers in the conformist 1950s, not only with their new writing styles but also in their openness about their gay sides, during a homophobic period in America.

After Kerouac sold The Subterraneans to the movies he moved in next door to us on a dead end street in Northport, NY the town where Peter Orlovsky was from. The photos of him above looking older and drunk are from that house, I think. He looked like what he was, a rapidly-aging drunk. All the housewives loved him but he wouldn't give them the time of day. He didn't hang out with any of the neighbors except for my dad who had him over for a drink one Christmas (Dad was kind of hunky back then). Kerouac had that kind of glazed bennies and booze look that freaked out my mom. She told my father never to invite him over again.

R94 Thanks for posting that video. It was odd watching Kerouac speak such fluent French. Forgot he was from Montreal. He isn't bad there, as bad as he got, booze-wise. I've seen him worse on another show, maybe Steve Allen. In this video, you could see his sensitivity. He was shy. There's a bar down on Main Street called Gunther's where Kerouac used to drink which burned down recently and everyone has been writing graffiti about Kerouac, telling them to rebuild, which I'm sure they will. They make too much money from it. Kerouac had groupies back in the 60s. They'd come down the street and throw pebbles at his windows. His mother was a big woman. She'd get rid of them.

R111, google "pics of Jack London." You will see the pic you have, but a lot of others when he was younger and in much better health. I should have qualified that he was very good looking when young but looked very rough in the years shortly before his death at 40. By that time, he was a serious alcoholic and user of morphine (near his death and for pain) and he also suffered from various diseases, including the disfiguring tropical disease yaws that he had contracted in his travels, and the uremia, which is what killed him along with a purported accidental (older accounts said intentional) overdose of morphine.

I think Kerouac was slightly drunk during that Steve Allen show and somewhat nervous at the same time. He didn't like fame or being in the spotlight. I think the fame and attention contributed to his alcoholism. He grew up in Lowell, MA and spoke only French until he learned English at the age of 6. His given name was Jean-Louis Kérouac, though he called himself Jean-Louis Lebris de Kérouac.

Someone mentioned Ken Kesey, and he was very muscular and in his youth very hot. I saw him in person at a lecture/poetry reading he hosted at Reed College in Portland, OR in 1982, and he was still hot then. I am a fan of his work. I did have an opportunity to talk with him at one point that evening but I checkened out and did not approach him. Years later I wrote a fan letter to him and sent it to him via his neighbor who owns the ranch next to Kesey's, who I do know, and he gave it to Ken. Kesey passed away unexpectedly in 2001 at the age of 66.

Yup.

Poets Peter Orlovsky and Jack Kerouac pose in swim trunks, converted boxer shorts, as William S. Burroughs takes a nap fully clothed on a beach in Tangier, Morocco.

Richard Farina, folksinger & cult author (namely the novel ‘Been Down So Long It Looks Like Up To Me). He was a college friend to Pynchon and Bob Dylan, and a total Latin fox. Legend tells that ladies loved and gentlemen alike adored him on campus.

He died very young, before his genius was recognised by mainstream America.

Jack Kerouac was handsome, masculine, athletic, yet also cultured and intellectual; a published author and poet, gay-friendly, though his own orientation is unclear, he had close gay friends during a homophobic time in America, unfortunately an alcoholic later... in other words, all the makings of a DL icon, yet he's not.
