Vintage gay

gay cowboysThis week’s photo dates back to the 1960s in Tucson, Arizona. I stumbled upon a website for the Tucson Gay Museum which collects images like these for the same reason I felt compelled to create this weekly post. You can learn more about the museum and their work at, tucsongaymuseum.org.

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.
