The photograph above is one of a series from Tom Bianchi: Fire Island Pines Polaroids 1975–1983 published by Damiani. You can read an article on Slate in 2013 when they first wrote about the series. As you might expect from Bianchi some of the photos are not safe for work, but you can read more 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 for a future post? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
