Torch Song by Harvey Fierstein comes to Boston

Next week Torch Song opens at the BCA Calderwood Pavilion. Described as hilarious and heart wrenching, Torch Song follows Arnold Beckoff on his odyssey to find happiness in New York. All he wants is a husband, a child and a pair of bunny slippers that fit, but a visit from his overbearing mother reminds him that he needs one thing more: respect.

Join Arnold on this all-too-human journey about the families we’re born into, the families we choose, and the battles to bring them all home. For more information about the show at the BCA Calderwood Pavilion and to purchase tickets visit the Boston Theatre Scene website or click on the button below.

Temptation Tuesday

Say hello to Markus Bohemius. He lives in England, loves yoga, and taking baths. He is also a lot of fun to follow on Twitter, which is where / how I found him. I’ve never been one for baths but I have to admit this photo is tempting enough to make me reconsider.

Vintage gay

Jess Collins (viaual artist) and Robert Duncan (poet) are depicted above in a photo taken at some point in 1958 or 1959 in Marin County at Stinson Beach in northern California. Jess was a member of the 1950s San Francisco art scene and met poet Robert Duncan in 1950. They remained together until Duncan’s death in 1988.

Earlier this summer, the blog ultrawolveunderthefullmoon had a nice post that introduced me to the couple, which you can read here.

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.
