This week on Instagram: backinthedaygay

I don’t know much about this account other than that I really enjoy following @backinthedaygay on Instagram. The Bradley Showers ad from 1965 is a good example of what you’ll find on this account which as of October had very few followers (less than 1,700) despite having more than 350 posts.

The Lucky Strike advertisement dating back to 1985 is probably the most current content you’ll find on the account which is complete with WWII era ads and more than a few covers of After Dark, an entertainment magazine that ran from the late 60s to early 80s. Everything on the feed is pg-rated but is filled with innuendo that may seem harmless by today’s standards but undoubtably caught the attention of everyone’s gaydar back in the day.
