Much thanks to BosGuy reader Jeff Stookey, author of the novel trilogy Medicine For The Blues who was thoughtful enough to share this photo from his partner’s private collection. I am left wondering what is the story behind this handsome couple? The portrait suggests a level of intimacy with their shoulders touching and both leaning their heads in towards each other.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
