Vintage gay

I want to thank BosGuy blog reader, Angel, who sent this photo as a suggestion for this weekly post. I think it works beautifully. I do wish the photo was more clear to better see what appears to be two very handsome young men under a tree, side-by-side in a half embrace while enjoying a pipe. It looks as if the guy on the right has on a wedding band which makes me wonder if it is two men enjoying time together as friends or maybe something more. Any thoughts on when this photo may have been taken based on their clothing and haircuts?

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

    Seen this for years in vintage groups around the web. I believe it is simply two collegiate men. Hanging out with a friend with a camera, and is wanting to take pictures. So they ham it up with the pipe.
