Rare Hunter S. Thompson Article – Why Boys Will Be Girls

Algren has never been accused of being “sexually confused,” and he doesn’t wear his hair particularly long. Nor do I, for that matter, but I have a fine collection of women’s hats. I cultivated this taste in the Air Force, as a reaction to the ugly bus driver’s caps that found favor with General LeMay. Unfortunately, he retired before I had a chance to confront him at a command inspection. I had a feathered bonnet, at the time, that would have stunned his eyeballs and ruined his mind.”   

Hunter S. Thompson – When Boys Will Be Girls (Pageant Magazine Aug. 1967)

I was lucky enough to pick up a copy of Pageant Magazine recently after a furious bidding war on ebay (sorry Tom), and inside the covers this fabulous story from the Good Doctor graced several pages. It is the only place that I have seen it to date and it makes for a really interesting read. You can check it out in full over in our rare articles section.

In other news it appears that Alex Gibney’s Gonzo will be available to purchase on Amazon from November 18th. You can place pre-orders and reserve a copy now.

Thats all for now,

Ron Mexico

  1. Sorry bout that man, I have a spam blocker thingy that sometimes catches genuine comments and lumps them in with real spam. If I forget to check it, they all get deleted. It’s weird.

  2. well, actually it is my fault. i went insane in my mouse-scrolling and clicked on the wrong comments.

    so, i’m sorry. and thank you for uploading this story.

  3. The first page of the article “Why Boys Will be Girls” was interesting as hell. I really was getting into it. Then I tried loading the second page, and it would only load half way? I’ve tried several times, with no luck. I then tried loading other articles, and the same thing happened. Is my computer fucked, or is everyone getting that? Could you possibley send me the rest of “Why Boys will be Girls”?
