I may have previously shared this photo. It looks vaguely familiar but I didn’t see it after doing a brief but not a thorough check of fairly recent posts. It is difficult to find quality photos of men of color from years past – let alone those of same sex couples. It is hard to say if these men are romantically linked but they certainly would make for a handsome couple. Any thoughts on when this was taken? My guess is in the 1950s.
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.
