Coming Out with Gay Bob

From last year. Gay Bob was a grown-up fashion doll introduced in 1977. Bob was was billed as the world's first openly gay and anatomically correct doll. Bob was created and marketed via Gizmo Development by advertising executive Harvey Rosenberg.Bob stood 13 inches tall and came in closet-shaped box.He came sporting a flannel shirt, tight jeans and cowboy boots, though you could order additional outfits through a catalog.Bob also had one ear pierced, and was designed to look like a cross between Paul Newman and Robert Redford.
I always wished I had a Gay Bob doll. Happy Pride!
