If you like my weekly vintage gay posts and are on Pintrest, I suggest you follow Jeff Stookey. His account collects vintage images that you are certain to enjoy. I want to thank him for reaching out and sharing his account. It is rare to find photos of men of color from the past. According to Jeff’s Pintrest post, this photo dates back to the 1920s, but I’m unsure where this may have been taken or the nature of the relationship of these two men. Perhaps they are friends, or perhaps there is more than meets the eye to their relationship.
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.
