Vintage gay

It is not clear when this photo of two friends (maybe more) was taken, but I’ll guess the early 1950s based on what appears to be a higher waist bathing suit being worn by the guy on the right. I love how happy they both look but especially the guy on the left who also happens to have a beautiful smile.

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
