November 1932 in LGBT History

Curtains!
To say it was a daring move for 1932 is putting it mildly. A show titled The Incubator opened on Broadway and almost immediately caused a firestorm. Set in an all-boys school, it entailed, according to one account, two of the male characters “developing an unnatural affection” for the hero. After opening on Nov. 1, 1932, 83 years ago this month, it seemed doomed for “dealing with twisted relationships,” as one critic wrote. Indeed, the show closed after only seven performances.
