Vintage gay

This photo was shared earlier this year in the Facebook Group Workingmen Beefcake. I love the smooch but can’t quite make out the names written at the bottom of the photo. Any thoughts on when or where this photograph may have been taken? The car in the background may provide a hint.

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.

Saturday morning coffee

Have I introduced you to my future ex-boyfriend? We’re going to meet at a coffee shop and fall madly in love. He just doesn’t know it yet, and I have no idea who he is. Can anyone tell me more?

Furry Friday

Seems like an appropriate Furry Friday photo for the first Friday in June.

Happy Pride to everyone.

Burger King: Pride Whopper controversy

You may have already read about this gaff but it’s too good of a story to overlook. Last week, Burger King Austria caused a stir on social media with its “Pride Whopper” campaign, that launched at the start of the month. The campaign centers on Burger King’s signature burger, allowing customers the option to order either two sesame-coated top buns or two flat-bottom buns.

According to BK, the intention was to highlight equal rights and equal love—by having two same side / types buns. However, the advertising agency seemed to be unaware of the meaning of top and bottom and proved to confuse (and in my case amuse) many in the LGBTQ+ community. Some turned to Twitter to ask Burger King if they were familiar with what top and bottom mean. One Tweet I read asked if there were any vers buns, LOL!

If you live in the Boston area and are looking for something fun to do, check out Pride Night at Fenway Park. While the official block of tickets have sold out, you can still purchase tickets to the game on the Red Sox website.

Tonight the stadium will have several thousand LGBTQ+ fans cheering on the Red Sox so come out and enjoy a fun night out at Fenway Park. I will be in the bleachers (sect 42) with a few friends. Hope to see you there. Pre-game celebrations hosted by Boston Proud will take place at The Cask-n-Flagon from 4:30PM – 6:30PM.
