CHICAGO EAGLE (1983) Gay leather bar poster by Etienne


Vintage original 18 x 22″ (45 x 55 cm.) poster, unfolded, with light crinkling at the extreme lower left, near fine.

This poster illustrates part of a wall mural created by queer painter and illustrator Dom Orejudos (under the pen name Etienne) for this bar, a long-lived Chicago leather venue, which was divided into three spaces — a large front room, a middle bar and a dimly-lit back room (and in that back room a strict dress code was enforced, requiring that “a major article of leather, rubber or uniform or camouflage” be worn).
