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 for a future post? Email me at bosguymail@gmail.com.
