I didn’t find Nofodden in Norway, but there is Notodden. Homosexual-club? Gay club?

by Anonymousreply 1104/07/2021

I wonder why he didn’t want friends his own age.

by Anonymousreply 1204/07/2021

Brave guy, homosexuality became legal in Norway in 1972 but in the other hand back then the add wouldn’t have found its way back to a small village in Norway.

You had me at "Mr. D"

by Anonymousreply 1404/07/2021

Because everyone his own age is poor, R12. And generally not very hairy.

by Anonymousreply 1504/07/2021

He posted the wrong picture. I wanna see that dick and ass!

by Anonymousreply 1604/07/2021

He should have shared a photo of his coin slot like they do on Grndr.

In related news Norway had a homo-club in the 50’s.

by Anonymousreply 1804/07/2021

Europeans are so progressive with their exemplary healthcare, their free tuition, and their homo-clubs!

by Anonymousreply 1904/07/2021

What does a homo club do, besides the obvious?

by Anonymousreply 2004/07/2021

R22 - wow, good find!

by Anonymousreply 2304/07/2021

Maybe 70 years from now people will be looking back on some of our Grindr ads.

by Anonymousreply 2404/07/2021

At least he’s not from a SHITHOLE country!

Norway was very poor in the 50s.

That is a f*cking 10/10 at Datalounge. I am going to be sure to add that to my introductions on Zoom calls.

Miss Lindzbelle's first ad in the early 70s:

Beautiful, almost virgin, young lady looking for older man age 50+. Interests include politics, shooting rifles at the gun range, attired in fashionable dresses and wearing sexy and frilly lingerie. This southern debutante will be going places, and needs a strong, confident, and very successful man with gentlemanly manners that knows how to treat a special lady.

by Anonymousreply 2804/07/2021

Scandinavians were always very open sexually. Not surprising. As a kid in the fifties, I didn't know there was such a thing!

by Anonymousreply 2904/07/2021

This is kind of a sweet cute story. In a sense uplifting.

by Anonymousreply 3004/07/2021

He's not cute but his message is. How wonderfully elegant with his French and German and school boy English.

by Anonymousreply 3104/07/2021

It appeared in this magazine. His letter is on the last page.

He's the '50s equivalent of GermanGayGuy.

by Anonymousreply 3504/07/2021

The whole mail order gay bride thing seems creepy, even if it was the 50s.

Oh! We found Joel's grandfather, I see!

R22. I enjoyed reading many of the letters ... the final letter was a bit melancholy ...

by Anonymousreply 3804/07/2021

I find it quite touching.

If you like that ad, you'll love these. The Link was an Edwardian hookup mag that the British Govt finally shut down. This twitter site posts the ads.

The article by Alison Hunter in the current[March)magazine,in which she discusses the Midwinter Institute conclusions regarding whether women should be"butch"or"femme";and summarizes it all up with"doing what comes naturally,"brings up a subject I have wanted to write to you about for sometime.

This has to do with"flaunt-ing"in public. Why,oh why,do both our sexes feel that it is clever,cute,or just having the courage of our convictions to ape the opposite sex, ironical it is, considering that we don't LIKE the opposite sex,in most cases. I have had occasion to be in a bowling alley when the"ladies"teams were bowl-ing, and such an array of out-and-out butch characters would be hard to imagine Each trying to outdo the other, with no concern for the on lookers who were not sympathetic. The unfortunate thing about it is that both male and female take on the most offensive. vulgar and gauche characteristics of the males,and the most simpering,cloying and sickening characteristics of the females and on both of them it looks bad even to one of their kind.

The magazine, the first of its kind, was the foundation of what is still called today One Archives, which is the largest collector of LGBTQ materials in the world and located in Los Angles. A few years ago the formally independent archives was merged into the library system of University of Southern California.

Here’s a nice overview about the magazine from the archive.

This reminds me of an interesting story my roommate told me. Before WW2, her grandmother of 17 came to Cluj, Romania from the south and started her ballet career where she quickly advanced to prima ballerina. A beauty that was a cross between Liz Taylor and the delicate grace of Audrey Hepburn, her dance partner was a young, blonde twink with huge eyes from Moldova. They looked amazing in the pictures she two perfect human specimens full of youth and grace. When the Germans came through in 1942, they blocked the main square between the opera and cathedral so when her grandma came to rehearsal she was told to go through the back. The opera was half empty and everyone was sitting in stunned silence. She asked where her partner "Michy" was and everyone just said "we aren't interfering" (Romanian translation = we are afraid and keeping our mouth shut to save our lives). She climbed to the top floor and one of the toothless peasants who worked the stage set said "come see here the 'snowfall'". Through a bulls-eye window she saw how her partner, a few other gay men and the Jews had been stripped naked and were forced to scrub the sidewalk with small shoe brushes by the Nazis before being herded onto trucks. Later, a peasant lady told her how once they got to the brickyard by the trains some of the peasants coming to the market gave them some grapes and blankets. None came back after the war.
