Vintage gay

Angel is a longtime reader of this blog who lives in Spain. He shared this photo with me a few months ago and I’m getting around to posting it now. Anyone have any idea when this may have been taken or what sort of military uniform they are wearing?

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 bosguymail@gmail.com.

Helmets & Heels August 13th at Dark Lady in PVD

Providence Gay Flag Football League

The Providence Gay Flag Football league is hosting what looks like a very fun fundraiser this Saturday (August 13th). The party will include a drag show (starts at 8PM!) and an outdoor block party.

Dark Lady will play host to this indoor / outdoor party that will help raise money to help support the Providence Lobsters who will be playing in this year’s Gay Bowl XXII in October.

Romeo & Juliet on Boston Common Aug 11&13

Are you looking for something fun to do this weekend? The Boston Lyric Opera is hosting two free performances of Romeo & Juliet at 8PM on Thursday, August 11 and Saturday, August 13.

Romeo & Juliet on the Boston Common

These FREE performances offer those who have never been to an opera, a unique opportunity to experience it under the stars. You can check out the full cast here. For those motivated by more base instincts, be sure to check out the very handsome baritone, Nicholas LaGeese who plays Mercutio – damn he’s cute.

Similar to the Shakespeare on the Common productions, you can rent chairs but it is best to make a reservation (chair reservation info). If you’re planning to attend, show up early because these free performances attract huge crowds.

I also recommend making pitstop at Roche Bros in DTX before you find a place on the Common to see this production. Roche Bros has a lot of grab-n-go items so you can have an impromptu picnic during the performance. While consuming alcohol on the Common is illegal, if you’re discreet, you’ll be fine. I’m a big fan of bringing some cheeses and one or two bottles of very cold white or rosé.

Men in kilts

Much thanks to Angel, a longtime reader and avid commenter for sharing this photo as a potential men in kilts post. I do wish we could see more of the kilt but I love the photo.

Monday morning mancandy

Much thanks to Angel from Spain, who shared this photo. I thought it would make for an ideal mancandy post. Anyone know who is this handsome guy?

This isn’t the first time the handsome DJ from Rio de Janeiro has been featured on a Saturday morning coffee post. He first appeared back in April here.

One can’t help but wonder if he is wearing the same outfit in this photo.

Vintage gay

This week’s photo of dancers, Rudolf Nureyev & Erik Bruhn, comes from The Vintage Life blog. According to Wikipedia, Bruhn met Rudolf Nureyev, the celebrated Russian dancer, after Nureyev defected to the West in 1961. Nureyev was a great admirer of Bruhn, and eventually became the great love of Nureyev’s life. The two were together for 25 years, until Bruhn’s death.

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 bosguymail@gmail.com.

Caption this photo

Much thanks to Joe over at The Closet Professor blog who first post this image back in July. I don’t know what the cheeky guy on the left just said, but I like his friend’s expression.

I’m confident you can come up with a better caption than what I’ve shared. Share a caption of your own in the comment section, and I’ll approve it for readers to enjoy.
