A Trip Down Jack Mackenroth Memory Lane

1 2 3 4 Next »


Jack Mackenroth wasn’t always a lovable contestant on Project Runway and AIDS activist. Once upon a time — 1993, to be precise — he was a fashion model in a little (just shuttered) magazine called Genre. It was the publication’s 12th issue and Jack says he “recall[s] the shoot like it was yesterday.”

Says Jack: “It was shot with a 2 dollar budget and it was one of my first modeling jobs. Back then models were reticent about appearing in a gay magazine. Oh the horror!! The photos are so quintessentially 90’s. My hair is a human atrocity. And the clothes. GOD. Oh well. Not a good fashion moment for me or the world but I still look pretty good now considering that was 16 years ago. Work the Calvin Klein linen honey!”

      Oh lord! I just went to my bookshelf and picked this issue up and lo and behold, there’s Jackie! I knew there was a reason for hording all my gay mags over the years. Now if only I could find a reason for two decades worth of GQ magazines.

      I must disagree with Jack; I think the clothes look alright. But the hair is quintessentially 1990′s. Although he does look like James Marsden circa “Boogies Diner”.

      This is just wonderful. I love gay ephemera. And I like the butch ones, too.

      Poor Jack! While he certainly didn’t look bad back then, I would say his beauty shines through much better now without the weird clothes & early ’90s hair. ;-)

      He looks fairly good in the photo on page 4 though that’s probably the angle distorting the 90s hair.
