Vintage gay

Are these two in mid embrace or dancing at a gay sock hop? Who can say for sure but the photo of this cute young gay couple appears to date back to the early 1950s. Anyone else care to take a guess or see any clues in the photo?

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 tose share? Email me at
