My Gay Eye gathers together artistic and sexual adventurers and exotics of every shade, featuring many new talents side by side with artists who have long been famous on the international art scene. In his choice of artists and pictorial exhibits Rinaldo Hopf has looked beyond Europe to search out new, unusual forms of expression and kept a special eye open for artists who are young or little known in Germany, who exist outside of the mainstream that is more fashionable and precisely because of that liable more quickly to become boring. He looked for artists, whose pictures both in content and form reveal an individual expression of gay love, desire, sexuality and gay self-awareness. On his quest Hopf made finds in Tel Aviv, Palm Springs and Shanghai, above all though in Vienna, Berlin, Amsterdam and New York

The "Stuttgarter Nachrichten" said: "Undomesticated eroticism, impudent without a need of harmony." Lespress likes it as "best queer erotic magazine". The news-magazine "Der Spiegel" called it: "self-willed, irritating, intelligent"

Like no other publication, "My secret Eye" or "My Lesbian Eye" or "My Gay Eye" shows the variety and changes in every sector of art concerning eroticism year by year - eroticism is not "always the same", but it is reproduced creatively again and again.

So the dealing with the issue, with pictures and language is changing - small facets, which are reflected here - often before they emerge in the media.

The cast of these volumes are of different ages, have different backgrounds, are famous or unknown.

Sex relates to art, to fantasy and to knowledge. It is part of human interaction, of fantasies and dreams as well as of everyday life.
The history of women and sexuality dates back to ancient times. A female queer underground has always existed, consisting of women who deal with sexuality and eroticism in their writings, pictures or other forms of art. The mainstream is dominated by a male culture of sexuality. Here "pornography" and "art" are seen as two spheres which are thoroughly separated. It is our aim to fight against the forces that prohibit the merging of these two realms and to search for a female gaze without asking ourselves continually: why is it different? We prefer our readers to see and judge for themselves. In our opinion art is created in magic moments that occur in the close encounters of dream and body.

Like no other publication, the famous yearbook "My secret Eye" shows the variety and changes in every sector of art concerning eroticism year by year - eroticism is not "always the same", but it is reproduced creatively again and again.
So the dealing with the issue, with pictures and language is changing - small facets, which are reflected here - often before they emerge in the media.
The cast of these volumes are of different ages, have different backgrounds, are famous or unknown...
More than 888 authors, photographers and artists have participated so far.

When we first asked people to participate in 1981, we said: "Wanted is a private statement, a self-confession of eroticism, or sex, a contribution to the development of an erotic culture and the art of love; poetry, theory, fantasy and reality; in pictures, photos, paintings... and/or literature. Of course, it is in the authors' discretion whether they reveal or hint at their personal sexual obsessions in the pictures or texts or if they deal with it on more general level: commenting, caricaturing, counterpointing. The form as such is free." Likewise are the themes and subjects, for example ecstasy and secret, every-day-eroticism, sexual life-styles and subtle enjoyments of fantasy, without boundaries between different sexualities, lesbian, gay, queer, straight, bi, multi... the large variety of Eros...These suggestions and expectations have not changed. In this sense we would like to invite you again or for the first time.
MY SECRET EYE has been well received and thus accepted by the press and the audience. The ZEIT wrote of "Lust and Love". "My Secret Eye" provided the cause to invite Claudia Gehrke to various seminars, special events and TV-stations. Various media fashion waves have passed us since; also different attempts of Censorship - they really threatened the publishing house of Claudia Gehrke; the publisher, however, has attended to the issue of eroticism from the start on (since 1978) and is definitely going to devote herself to this subject in the future (and also to philosophy and poetry and photography in separate publications)...
