the gay lords
Back cover: Barry Sterling, a would-be writer fresh from his family's Kentucky farm, is suddenly thrust into the bewildering new environment of Greenwich Village, "Pervert Capital of the World." He meets Johnny, the baby-faced boy with girlish body who wants to be Barry's "wife." then there's Nick, the hot-blooded Sicilian artist who paints scenes from the raw-edged life he leads, and Gene, the blond Viking giant who smokes reefer and plays very, very rough. This motley crew calls itself the Gay Lords and they're the Big Apple's swishiest gang!
