Aaron Bridgers, Billy StrayhornBilly Strayhorn was one of the greatest composers from the Swing era (shown second from the left). He is best known for his long-time collaboration with Duke Ellington. He is shown above at a party in Harlem in the 1940s. Strayhorn was a brave man, living as an openly gay man of color in the 1940s. You can learn more about this amazing man, here.

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.

This week on Instagram: pocketboston

bostonI’m unsure if I’ve previously featured this Instagram account but it is a personal favorite. The photographer who I believe is named Roberto has a fantastic eye and the account is filled with really engaging and beautiful photos of places throughout the city.

Above is a photo from late last year soon after our first snow in December and the image below is from this past spring which gives me hope that warmer weather is on its way to Boston.

Boston Ballet presents rEVOLUTION

This Thursday, February 27th will be opening night for the Boston Ballet at the Boston Opera House. rEVOLUTION is the first ballet production of 2020 and with works from Balanchine, Robbins and Forsythe it is going to amaze.

  • George Balanchine’s daring, powerhouse collaboration with Igor Stravinsky Agon
  • Jerome Robbins’ Broadway and ballet legend, late-career masterwork Glass Pieces
  • William Forsythe’s electrifying, global sensation In the Middle, Somewhat Elevated.

These three choreographers have helped transform the world of ballet. Over the years, I’ve come to enjoy how this format of featuring different works from choreographers and I think it provides the casual patron or even a first time visitor a glimpse into the variety and incredible athleticism and artistry of ballet.

Get Your Tickets Here

Make plans with friends and come out for a night at the ballet. Tickets start at $37.00 so check it out and if you happen to be attending opening night this Thursday, do stop by and say hello to Sergio and me. I’m sure we will be sipping Champagne in the lobby during intermission.
