Vintage gay

gay couple on the beach

I plucked this photo from the Kiki Beach IG account and aside from the two names scribbled on the bottom of the photo I don’t know much. I would venture a guess that this might date back to the 1940s simply by the look of the bathing suits Jeffrion and Felix are wearing. Anyone else able to venture a guess?

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 agree with ed, and because of the name Jeffrion, in the 40s I guess they would have called him Jeff


  2. While they are indeed a cute couple, their bathing costumes indicate to me, early 20th Century. I believe, by the 1940s, they would have been bare chested and squared boxers.
