At times like this, I wish I was a mind reader.

One-Hour Special Premieres Friday, June 12 at 9:00 p.m. ET on PBS
PBS is celebrating Pride Month with the launch of PRIDELAND, a new one-hour special and short-form digital series following host and actor Dyllón Burnside (from FX’s “Pose”) across the South. The six-episode short-form series launched on PBS Voices on Tuesday, May 26. A one-hour companion special hosted by Burnside, will premiere on Friday, June 12 at 9:00 p.m. ET
PBS will also air an encore presentation of The Lavender Scare, the gripping documentary that tells the untold story of how tens of thousands of homosexual federal workers were either fired or denied employment in the 1950s, stirring outrage in the gay community and starting an LGBTQ rights movement with an unlikely hero at the forefront. The acclaimed documentary (winner of 16 awards for Best Documentary) will air on PBS on Friday, June 12 at 10:00 p.m. ET.
The photo above is one of several from this amazing BBC article, that captures a time in history – alas the story doesn’t end happily as all the guests were arrested but it does make for a quick and interesting read. The photos in the article date back to 1917 in Petrograd – better known today as St. Petersburg.
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 email@example.com.
