Goh Mishima had a traditional upbringing, was inducted into the army at age 18 and had his first homosexual encounter with another soldier. In 1972, Barazoku, Japan's first gay magazine, began publication. Mishima contributed photographs and illustrations, but soon became disenchanted with the magazine's "pretty boy" image and created his own publication, Sabu. It was named for his favorite bartender and promoted a far more masculine and sexually aggressive male image. Mishima did all its cover art. As his reputation grew the artist produced great numbers of drawings from his small Meguro district apartment where he died of cirrhosis of the liver in 1988.
