Vintage gay

The “Hat Sisters” at the Esther Williams Water Ballet at Herring Cove 1985

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. Do you have a photo you would like to share? Email me at

  1. I love those guys. I have a collection of their pics I’ve found online and smile when I see the love and joy those two had in their lives. This one’s cool.


  2. He brought so much joy to so many over the years – may his every memory continue to be a blessing and inspiration.
