Shown above are Hollywood elite Tab Hunter and Anthony Perkins. The two kept their relationship a secret as both were in the closet when they met in the early 1960s. Below is a smiling photo of Tab from the 1950s. With his all American good looks it’s no wonder he was such a box office success.
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.
