Rollo made a brief mention of Hard & Bueno. I was a little stunned when the legendary balletic Maria Bueno was sensationally outed in the 90s at Wimbledon. The top 10 in the 70s reads like a whos who in lesbian stars: King, Casals, Wade, Stove, Turnbull and then later Mandlikova, Jaeger and heaps more outside the top 10. I have a few close lesbian friends that played the tour in the 70s and 80s so they always have a few interesting stories.
I just wished there were some out guys on the tour. I think they would make great role models for young people who may be gay but are feeling scared, confused or isolated.
