JEREMY The Magazine for Modern Young Men Vol. 1, No. 1 (London: Jeremy Publications, April 1969) + JEREMY No. 3, Nos. 5-8 (London: Jeremy Enterprises Ltd., c. November 1969-c. August 1970).

Edited and published by Peter L. Marriott. Glossy magazine format. Pagination varies (46pp.-62pp.). Illustrated throughout with photographs and cartoons.

A broken run of 7 early issues of Jeremy, the first general interest gay magazine to appear in the UK following the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality in 1967.

i) The first issue, probably a subscription-only pre-launch pilot produced in order to solicit advertising (ads. for Jeremy first appeared in IT #50 in February and Oz #19 in March 1969). Not to be confused with the issue that followed three months later in July 1969, also designated Vol. 1, No. 1, titled simply Jeremy and publishing entirely different content. The issue here features articles on fashion, grooming and cooking; a portfolio of Ortil's beach photographs; short fiction; and film, theatre, record and book reviews.

ii) The editorial in Vol. 1, No. 3 pronounces "Jeremy's crusade for a new gay ethic - and the abolition of false categories - notably the one labelled gay", and the front cover feature, titled "On a Bisexual Made for Two", subtitled "Can you tell the difference? An ambisextrous trip in the country", follows two androgynous youths through the countryside, portrayed in 9pp. of photographs by Johnnie Clamp. Other articles include a profile of Bo, the Queen of the Royal Vauxhall Tavern; "The Gentle World of Patrick Proctor" (4pp.); a report on the 'Dilly Boys' (6pp.); Peter Wyngarde ('Jason King'); Richard Bennett-England on male hairpieces; "Skinhead", a short story by Paul Lewis; a guide to London's gay clubs; more.

iii) The editorial in Vol. 1, No. 5 (c. January 1970) announces that "Jeremy enters the Seventies with a commitment to fight for a society in which we are free, not merely permitted, to live the lives we choose insofar as they do no harm to others", and the following 5 pages print a photo-feature on Warhol movies 'Lonesome Cowboys' and 'Flesh', currently screening at the New Arts Lab. Other articles outline the main provisions of the Sexual Offences Act 1967; a full-page ad. for 'Jeremy Fundies' ("stimulating underwear for the modern male"); correspondence (incl. from Kenneth Williams); "Homosexuality in London", the text of a lecture given by Anthony Gray [sic], Director of the Albany Trust (followed by a questionnaire); a 12pp. cover feature on a polyamorous triangle, with models wearing clothes by John Stephen and Mr. Freedom; Peter Burton on "recent homosexual drama"; 'Women In Love' reviewed (w. full-page photo of Alan Bates); music reviews by 'Caroline', with photo of Tyrannosaurus Rex; New Year fashions by Dean Rogers (13pp.); more.

iv) The front cover of Vol. 1, No. 6 (c. February 1970) promises more than "63 pages of gay delights" and its editorial is given over to a lengthy lecture delivered to an American audience by Antony Grey titled "Sex and Morality" (the following article outlines the work of the Albany Trust, of which Grey was the Secretary). Other articles feature actor Christopher Jones ("Chubasco"); a Jeremy Valentine; Jeremy beachwear; "Go gay when you put your trousers on!" (fashion spread featuring trousers by Dean Rogers); and "Bowie for a Song", an article in which Tim Hughes and Trevor Richardson "break down the prismatic personality of Britain's Pop phenomenon, David Bowie." Their 3pp. story profiles Bowie during rehearsals at the Palladium and performances at the Purcell Room and the Speakeasy, and includes extended quotes ("I am a loner. I don't feel the need for conventional relationships"). Illustrated with two photographs of Bowie taken by Johnnie Clamp at Haddon Hall during their visit in early January 1970.

v) Vol. 1, No. 7 features Jimmy McCulloch of Thunderclap Newman on the front cover, and inside, "Keeping Track", a 3pp. "look at two of the boys from Track Records" (McCulloch and Paul Burns); plus "Girls on the Gay Scene" (interviews with Pam and Iris, "two of the ladies on the London gay scene"); a brief photo-illustrated piece on Long John Baldry; "Spot the Girl", 4pp. featuring Pussy, "the most eye catching new female impersonator in the business" (formerly part of a drag act with Bo); more.

vi) Edison Lighthouse appear on the front cover of Vol. 1, No. 8, accompanied by a 5pp. feature photo-illustrated by Hunter Reid; plus double-page Jeremy Fundies ad.; "Skinheads: A Lingering Look" by Trevor Richardson (4pp.); Gay Guide to London (incl. The Masquerade and The Boltons in Earl's Court); stills from 'Ned Kelly' and 'Fellini's Satyricon'; more.

vii) The contents of Vol. 1, No. 9 include "Pleasures of Past Times", Timothy d'Arch Smith's "Glimpse of Homosexual Life in the Early Part of this Century"; plus Maurice Gibb; "Facts about drug misuse" by Kenneth Leech (3pp.); a surfing photo-feature; more. Minor wear to No. 6 at top right corner of rear cover, o/w all issues about Near Fine.

Jeremy closed in 1972 due to financial problems, and a new title, Jeffrey, appeared soon after. Copies, individual or otherwise, rarely appear on the market, especially the issue containing the early interview with David Bowie.
