Synopsis: Have you heard of Charles Leslie? Thomas Mann pinched his butt. He has the biggest penis collection in the world. He is one of the fathers of modern New York SoHo. And he’s the co-founder of the first museum for gay and lesbian art. The story of his life is as incredible as it is unknown. Now it will be released under the title The Art of Looking―The Life and Treasures of Collector Charles Leslie. An epic photo book that is much more than a mere biography. Bestselling author Dr. Kevin Clarke (Beards―An Unshaved History, Porn―From Warhol to X-Tube) tells the story of Charles Leslie: soldier, actor, art collector, lover, globetrotter, gay activist, museum founder. The author guides us through the stages of an exciting life―a life that reflects the major turning point of Gay Liberation from the 1950s until today. The book is illustrated with numerous images from Charles Leslie’s private archive, studded with witty anecdotes and historical background information.
