Last month, I posted a photo from “LOVING — A Photographic History of Men in Love 1850s-1950s.” by Hugh Nini and Neal Treadwell after a friend made me aware of it through this Washington Post article from this past September. The photo above is another image from the coffee book which can be purchased on Amazon for $65. If you’re thinking of buying this book, first contact your local, independent bookstore to see if they can 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.
