I stumbled upon this photo of two unidentified men in Kentucky photo dating back to the early 1900s. Much thanks to the work done by historian Jonathan Coleman and artist Robert Morgan who compiled more than 12,000 items and 100 hours of recorded interviews for the Faulkner-Morgan Pagan Babies Archive of LGBTQ life in Kentucky. You can read more about the collection 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.
