Data-Boy Magazine was a Gay entertainment magazine originally published in Hollywood in the early 1970s by Data-Boy Instant Press and early computerized printing service and provided free at various bars and hangouts. Mostly advertising for local bars, clubs and services it included reviews of stage plays and films. In the late 1970s-1980s it expanded to Northern California and the two publications were bound back to back with appropriate numbering for each. This ended sometime in the mid 1980s when the publication address changed to Los Angeles and the magazine was called California Data-Boy combining all of the state into one periodical. Very broken run but a fairly extensive and comprehensive selection of the different styles, editorial and physical layout.
