Vintage gay

I may have posted this photo previously because it looks vaguely familiar. Anyone care to guess where this may have been taken? The attire and mustaches make me think this was taken possibly in Europe but I haven’t a clue as to where or when this week’s picture was taken.

I dedicate this weekly post, featuring vintage gay photographs, to the men and women who lived in a more critical time where being true to yourself and loving who you want wasn’t always an option and came at a great price. Do you have a photo you would like to share? Email me at bosguymail@gmail.com.
