I wish this photograph was larger, because I love this ‘tough guy’ look and how the three are identically posed with legs crossed at the ankles, arms crossed, similar shirts open at the chest, and cigarettes hanging out of their mouths while they look straight into the camera. Anyone able to place or date this photo?
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.
