The Drummer Legacy

During the late 20th century, Drummer was the most successful of the American leather magazines and sold overseas. The publication had a major impact of spreading gay leather as a lifestyle and masculinity as a gay ideal.

We are currently displaying the first 100 copies with more to come soon.

More than a magazine

Hey Guys,

It’s been an honor to redesign the new Drummer website and hope I did justice to what I consider to be a leather legacy.   I was blown away when I found out that there were scanned copies of each of the first 214 issues and was tasked with finding a way to display them.  As I went thru them starting with Issue #1 published in June 1975, I knew these were something special.

As a tribute, I designed the new logo above as well as the “wall” you see on the new “Origins” page using the historic covers from the first 100 issues.  These issues are not just a part of leather history, they are part of my own history.

Coming out in the early 80’s in the San Francisco Bay Area, I was always drawn to the leather culture that dominated the South of Market district. Drummer had a major influence on me as a young man and it’s edgy content helped me navigate my path.


Drummer is more than a magazine, it’s an institution that stands for something we all want – acceptance, unity and the freedom to be different.
