Kenneth Macpherson shown on the left was a Scottish-born novelist, photographer, critic, and film-maker. Although married to a woman he and his wife both had a series of high profile affairs. Macpherson had a relationship with cabaret singer Jimmie Daniels (shown on the right). The photo above is of the two men attending the opening of the Federal Theatre Project’s production of Macbeth (April 14, 1936)
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.
