Much thanks to my friend Jim Lundy for sharing this Washington Post article from this past September which shares never before images of men in love. More than 2,800 images have been lovingly collected and recently published as: “LOVING — A Photographic History of Men in Love 1850s-1950s.” by Hugh Nini and Neal Treadwell. The hardcover book can be purchased for $65 on Amazon and would make for an amazing holiday gift, but if you want to buy it, contact your local, independent bookstore first to see if you can have them order a copy for you.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
