Vintage gay

famous gay couples

Here is a photograph of a young Truman Capote resting his head on his lover and partner, Jack Dunphy. My guess would be that this dates back to the late 40s or possibly in the early 1950s. Anyone know more about this picture?

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 keep expecting to see a photo of myself and my partner. We met in 1966 and were together until his passing 46 years later in 2012. I have a fear that we are soon becoming “Vintage!”
