Scott Thorson and Liberace

For those unfamiliar with Liberace and his intense relationship with the very troubled, Scott Thorson, I’d suggest you watch HBO’s 2013 brilliant film starring Michael Douglas as Liberace and Matt Damon as his lover, Scott Thorson – Behind the Candelabra.

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

  1. This is certainly a good one for your “Vintage Gay” series of posts, BosGuy.

    I must confess, I had forgotten about the more recent “Behind the Candelabra,” motion picture.

    However, I knew there was another one, from when I was a bit younger. In 1988, there was a TV movie about Liberace’s life called “Liberace: Behind the Music.” It is copyrighted 1988, so it was released when I was eighteen years-of-age.

    I thought I found it on YouTube, but I might need to do a little more digging, to see if I can find it. Oh, well.
