During the 1950s, a professor and tattoo artist named Samuel Steward chronicled his sex life in drawings, letters, photographs, sexual paraphernalia and other items, and in so doing created documentary evidence of his experience of gay life and homosexuality in American culture at that time. “Obscene Diary,” an exhibition now on view at the Museum of Sex that includes many of Steward’s personal artifacts, drawings and photographs, is a trove of information about how a community of gay men lived in the 50s and 60s. Show runs till January 17th, 2012.
