Enjoy the weekend and thanks for stopping by to check out my blog.
I’m not much of a fan of going to the movies, but this true story of the 1973 tennis match between Billie Jean King and douchebag Bobby Riggs, may actually get me to go to the theater.
Emma Stone looks very believable as King and Steve Carroll appears every bit as obnoxious as Riggs who unfortunately also happens to remind me of another DB who currently lives at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

Approximately one year ago on September 24, 2016, John Michael Grey (shown far left) who was one half of The Hat Sisters passed away. Grey is survived by his partner Timothy O’Connor. I wanted to share this photo which is part of a larger grouping of very happy photos of this wonderful couple on a Facebook page dedicated to the legacy of Grey and the Hat Sisters.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
