Prostějov New Look



Prostějov Street Scene 2
Originally uploaded by youplayawhat.
Someone recently told me that Nový hlas advertised same-sex orgies in Prostějov during the 1920s. When my bus pulled to a stop in front of the main station there during my trip to North Moravia last week, I couldn't help but wonder what might be the current doings in the fashion capital of the Czech Republic. (Seriously, as odd as it may seem, this small Moravian town touts itself as the center of Czech clothing design and the garment industry.) As you can see from the picture, there was not much going on when I passed through. You never know what lies beneath.

More photos from my stopover here.

I'm not sure "advertised" is quite the term. Reporting a scandal (originally from Polední list) was a bit more like it. The date was 1934. Jiří Fanel's Gay historie summarizes the story under the title "Lesbické orgie milionářské dcerky." I didn't read it carefully but it refers to a "žena démon a žena proletářka."
