Vintage gay

This week’s vintage gay photo comes from the Twitter account @oldmasc. Just a heads up if you want to click on the link – this is a NSFW Twitter account so don’t say I didn’t warn you! Thanks to the note at the bottom of the photo we can clearly see that the photograph was taken in 1936. Does anyone recognize where this may have been taken? When I zoom in on the image I cannot make out the boardwalk signs but I’m wondering if anyone has a guess.

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. It looks like Santa Cruz boardwalk. I’m from San Mateo and take my guests and visitors there often.
