Approximately one year ago on September 24, 2016, John Michael Grey (shown far left) who was one half of The Hat Sisters passed away. Grey is survived by his partner Timothy O’Connor. I wanted to share this photo which is part of a larger grouping of very happy photos of this wonderful couple on a Facebook page dedicated to the legacy of Grey and the Hat Sisters.
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.
