Christopher Isherwood and W.H. Auden were a couple for a few years, shortly after a friend introduced them in 1925. Both were from England but neither remained there, traveling throughout and living in Europe and the United States.

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 bosguymail@gmail.com.

One response to “Vintage gay

  1. My lovely BosGuy, it has been too long since I have commented on your posts, especially, one of my favorites, your “Vintage Gay” posts.

    Indeed, for those of us who are Gay, and also, especially for those of us who write, Christopher Isherwood can certainly be described as one of our Gay Ancestors. And yes, also W. H. Auden.

    Thank you for this, and for all you do.
