I wish I knew more about these two men, because they look like they were a fun couple. By their attire, I would assume the photo was taken in the late 180os or possibly the early 1900s; pre WWI.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
