Vintage gay

The photo above is one of several from this amazing BBC article, that captures a time in history – alas the story doesn’t end happily as all the guests were arrested but it does make for a quick and interesting read. The photos in the article date back to 1917 in Petrograd – better known today as St. Petersburg.

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
