'Want to have a gay time but don't know where or how?' Here is the very first volume of Spartacus, the legendary listings guide for gay travellers. The guide was published annually until 1986 and still exists in app form. The early Spartacus provided addresses and recommendations of gay spaces internationally including meeting spots in Argentina, Japan, Morocco and more. This guide spans not only nightlife but baths, beaches and even escort services. With essays about the local scene and what to expect plus queer classifieds and personal ads. An incredibly scarce, pioneering document in its survey of LGBT life worldwide.
