Gay Icons 4 : "Berlin was Boys!"

"Good authors too who once knew better words Now only use four-letter words Writing prose. Anything goes." These lyrics from the opening of Cole Porter's wonderful 1934 musical "Anything Goes" could well have been written with the writer and novelist Christopher Isherwood in mind...
