I really love this photo of a dapper gay couple from the 1920s. While I don’t know who they are, the photo is included in a 2019 article posted by the History Channel called, “How Gay Culture Blossomed During the Roaring Twenties” I highly recommend you check out the article if you’re a fan of this weekly post and gay culture / history in general. It is an easy 5-10 minute read full of information including how (and where) drag started and how for a brief window in time gay men and women had a degree of freedom in a few major cities before the start of the Great Depression and WWII.
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.
