Vintage gay

Here is yet another amazing photo shared with me by Peter Miller. According to Peter, the back of the photo has written in pencil “ALBERT LAWBERT”. He thinks that the photo dates back to 1880s-1890s. The photo definitely depicts a moment of light-heartedness.

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.

He sure does clean up nice. Definitely the kind of guy you bring home to Mom and Dad. Plus I really like his sporran (a.k.a. fanny pack).

How do you take your coffee? This guy seems to like it naked and in bed.

Here is a photo of Matt who lived here in Boston back when this photo was taken. I lost touch with him after he finished nursing school and moved down to North Carolina but hope he is healthy and well.

Last month, I posted a photo from “LOVING — A Photographic History of Men in Love 1850s-1950s.” by Hugh Nini and Neal Treadwell after a friend made me aware of it through this Washington Post article from this past September. The photo above is another image from the coffee book which can be purchased on Amazon for $65. If you’re thinking of buying this book, first contact your local, independent bookstore to see if they can order a copy for you.

After Forever

After Forever is a modern drama centered on a gay, middle aged couple. The twist is we quickly learn that Jason, played by Mitchell Anderson, has terminal cancer and is given weeks (maybe months) to live. His partner of 15 years, Brian, played by Kevin Spirtas, has to make peace with Jason’s decision not to commit to chemo and radiation therapy so he can live his final days on his terms.

Friends and family play a key role in supporting Jason through his illness and helping Brian as he copes with his grief. Each episode starts with a grainy video of Jason and Brian together during a happier time before flashing into the present. Watching Brian struggle, learn to live alone and find moments of joy is incredibly touching.

If you’re looking for a gay-themed drama, I would definitely recommend this series. Episodes are very short (approximatey 15 minutes) and pack an emotional punch. After Forever is currently available on Amazon prime.

Here is an unorthodox post for my weekly men in kilts, but I couldn’t resist after I saw this. Hope you agree and this week’s post gives you a chuckle.

This guy doesn’t look like he has any intentions of getting up anytime soon but for everyone else, rise and shine.

What can I say other than I am so envious. Great hair, great hairy chest.
