Camp Records  
 
page: 1  2  

Camp Records needs to be seen as challenging the "unspeakableness" of homosexuality. It is also significant for reflecting the sense of community that was emerging among homosexuals in the late 1950s and early 1960s and that would ultimately make the gay liberation movement possible.

Further information about Camp Records may be found on JD Doyle's excellent Queer Musical Heritage website, which not only reproduces images of the albums and records and the issue of Vagabond in which the label advertised, but also presents downloadable mp3 files of the songs.
