Vintage gay

Peter Watson, Cecil Beaton, Robert Heber-PercyThe photo above shows Cecil Beaton, Oliver Watson and Peter Watson in the 1930s. Apparently these three raised more than a few eyebrows as they flaunted their disregard for social mores. It seems like this was tolerated to a point possibly due to their family’s wealth and influence. There is an interesting read about these men you can check out here.

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
