ALIBI, June 1956

ALIBI, The Magazine About the Escapades of Men was a well know periodical of the 1940s and 1950s, and provided a road-map for those who wanted to listen to that little voice inside of them and try things that they may not have considered before.  Men, and the men who enjoyed the company of other men, found that ALIBI had its own special code - like reading between the lines, if you know what we mean.  As popular in San Francisco as it was in Greenwich Village as it was in sassy New Orleans or morally righteous Oklahoma, ALIBI's core audience was broad and the magazine enjoyed great sales until an ALIBI sponsored party a New York City bar got out of control one night, and the purpose of the magazine was snuffed out in one paltry riot for equality.
