Return to Wisconsin's Escape main page.

 

(Escape started life in February 1978 as a "bar rag" type format magazine, named The Milwaukee Calendar. That early publication was bought by the publishers of Gay Chicago magazine in 1980 and became Gay Milwaukee for about one year before being morphed into Wisconsin's Escape magazine. This page shows the issues only of the one year that Wisconsin's Escape existed as a small "bar rag" type format magazine. Then, early in October 1982, Escape became affiliated with Chicago's GayLife newspaper: it was converted into a newspaper format, which was inserted as "Part B" in Wisconsin area distributions of GayLife newspaper; those issues are shown at this link.)
