Roger and Frank photo dates from the 1950s

This photo is courtesy of The History Project, Boston’s LGBTQ community archives and part of the Roger & Frank Revisited: Gay Life & Love in the 1950s & 1960s with Robert Young that will take place later this month from 6:00 to 8:00 pm, Thursday, Oct. 20, 2016. Photos from this collection offer a glimpse into a group of gay men living their lives in New York, Provincetown, and — Robert recently discovered — Andover, Massachusetts.

This event is free and open to the public, but space is limited! RSVPs are required, via Eventbrite.

Previous Vintage Gay Photos

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 for a future post? Email me at

  1. I know this is shallow of me, but, socks and loafers on a beach? The San Diego beach bunny in me is shuddering uncontrollably! I do love these vintage pics, though. 😉
