About this deal
The handsome appeal of the sailor is not only aesthetic but also political. Male beauty is a propaganda tool and aspirational – to be heroic is to be beautiful. Set up as national figures for admiration, queer romance finds a visual language for expression. Where does the queer link come from? Henry Marvell Carr at the National Maritime Museum models the archetype of the idealised male sailor for us. An Ordinary Telegraphist, painted in around 1944, taps into the essence of the sailor as iconic. The figure of the sitter Maurice Alan Easton radiates male glamour. Idealised, vigorous, masculine, noble, brave, disciplined, able, virtuous, protective, handsome, strong – Maurice embodies a litany of symbolic or fantasy qualities we project onto his physicality. It's hard to think of any other movie having as big of a culture impact than Barbie this year. The Margot Robbie-starring picture has become the highest grossing film of the year and has inspired countless memes. Become your own Barbie girl with the Adult Cowgirl Halloween Costume inspired by Margot Robbie's outfit from the film. Dance a disco night away as you honor one of the most iconic characters in history.

The combination of what the uniform represents and the male beauty here is palpable. Contrived to be as appealing as possible, Maurice is transformed from the civilian life he formerly occupied as a railway bookings clerk from Oxfordshire into a man of action stationed in Naples. If you're planning to celebrate Halloween with someone else, a great way to figure out a costume is to each wear one made for couples. It's easy to pair certain costumes together, but there's nothing more precise and perfect than two costumes made to go together. And although all these costumes feature a man and a woman in promotional images, just know these costumes are unisex. Sometimes the best costume you can wear is the pride you have in yourself. Why would you want to be anyone else? These LGBTQ-themed costumes are not only fun for Halloween, but they also show off your identity for everyone to see. Make Halloween even queerer this year with these fun costumes.Let's consider the process of queering the sailor in art and its function. To be a mariner, or more explicitly to escape the societal conventions of life on the land was powerful indeed and recognised by queer audiences historically. Same-sex desire and affection was a facet of life at sea – in single-sex environments freedom of movement and access to different cultures afforded more options. Gay bars in ports around the world mirrored this, as did the spread of the queer language Polari (a way to speak openly and in code without overtly incriminating yourself). He transcends 'normality' – becoming fetishised by travel, danger, and an all-male environment. The artist Carr was conscious of the sitter's appeal (Easton was specifically chosen by the artist) and his image went on to feature as a poster for a Navy Leagues exhibition in 1946. Consciously or unconsciously, the artist offers us the quintessential gay male fantasy from history. The stories recounted here in vivid detail call into question the imagined boundaries between gay and straight, homosexual and homosocial, and suggest a secret Pentagon motivation for the gay ban: to protect homoerotic military rituals, buddy love, and covert military homosexuality from the taint of sexual suspicion.

A stereotype too far? Reading artworks from gay male perspectives, however, can risk occupying a two-dimensional or prejudicial view on the gay male experience. That to be gay, or resort to same-sex love or desire while at sea, is some sort of default or secondary option to being heteronormative. A lesser option perhaps, stigmatised in the lusty sailor trope. Everyone interested in the issue of gays in the military, along with a general gay readership, gay veterans, and gay men for whom sailors represent a sexual ideal, will find Sailors and Sexual Identity an informative and entertaining read. Every Barbie needs her Ken (at least for Halloween that is). We love Ken's cowboy look from the film, but we can't stop thinking about Ryan Gosling rollerblading in a neon workout outfit.

But just remember, you're 'Kenough.'It's time to cause a little mischief with your friends on All Hallows' Eve.

Gertler lived near Hampstead Heath from the winter of 1914–1915 – how conscious was he that the landscape he painted here was heavily coded in gay male sexuality? Again, whether conscious or unconsciously, the sailor sits visually within a homoerotic landscape.
