Vintage gay

Thanks to Buzzfeed, I can tell you that this photo was taken at the 1980 New York City Pride. Little did these men know that a virus called AIDS would ravage their community while most of America pretended not to notice (if they were polite) while the rest openly gloated calling it ‘god’s will’.

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
