This week’s vintage gay post comes from the @oldmasc Twitter account. According to the post this photo was taken at the NYC Piers in 1978. This was a very popular place for gay men to meet and connect prior to the AIDS epidemic. I can’t help but wonder what ever may have become of him.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
I trust you had a full and happy life with your partner, family and friends.
Why don’t we open a space for everyone to tell how he thinks the life of this man who in the late 70’s was sunbathing smiling possibly to someone special who took his picture?
Cool pic. One can always wonder …
Not really a comment. I also want to know what went on with this man.
