Vintage gay

The grainy photo makes it difficult to see the photo but they appear to be on a boat or by the water and very happy together. Despite the aging photos spots and deterioration, it is easy to see that they appear relaxed and happy. Anyone have a clue when this photograph may have been taken?

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

  1. I’d rule out Navy. He’d have a name patch over his left breast pocket if he were Navy, which we’d likely see the corner of in the photo if it were there.


  2. The guy on the right is just happy to have found his bear! 🐻

    P.S. I want one! 🤗


  3. I suspect they are navy or merchant marine. They appear to be wearing matching work shirts. Tough to date though, it could be any were from the mid thirties to the 1960s I’d guess.
