Vintage gay

This week’s vintage gay post breaks with tradition because (try as I might) I could not find a photo of Lewis Duckett and Dr. Billy Jones from years past. The image above is from their wedding in 2013. When this photo was taken, they had already been together for 46 years, having met just prior to Dr. Jones being sent overseas in the Vietnam War. He and Lewis would write to each other almost every day but because being gay was a crime and potentially career-ending, they wrote in code, often with Duckett using a pseudonym, posing as a woman to be able to write more freely about his feelings for Jones. Jones would return safely from Vietnam and the two men would go on to adopt a child and eventually become grandparents. You can learn more about these amazing men by Googling their names, but I first learned about the couple reading, Famous Black Gay Couples in The Spotlight on Black Gay Blog.

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

For every ride on a pride-themed bike in June, Bluebikes title sponsor Blue Cross will donate $1 to support LGBTQ+ health care at Fenway Health

Even though Boston Pride will only be officially observed virtually this June, pride flags are popping up everywhere and local employers are coming up with creative ways to show they support the local LGBTQ+ community.

Yesterday, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts announced that 100 Bluebikes will be given rainbow wraps to celebrate Pride Month in Boston. The health insurer also pledges to donate $1 for every ride on these “Pride bikes” to support LGBTQ+ health at Fenway Health.

Memorial Day, handsome, hairy model

For many, today is the best kind of Monday – a holiday. For everyone in the United States, I’d like to wish you a happy Memorial Day. The 2021 summer season has officially started in New England, and I want to wish everyone a safe and healthy summer. 

Scruffy Sunday

As delightful as breakfast in bed sounds, I can’t help but worry about the food and drink spilling all over the bedding. Someone please get this man a tray.

Furry Friday

I rarely use selfies for the Furry Friday post, but exceptions can be made.

Vintage gay

I believe this may be a photo from the 1980s on Fire Island. I thought it was the perfect photo to share as we go into Memorial Day Weekend because so many of us here in the Northeast have been waiting for the summer to start. It has been a long year and warmer weather and sun makes for great medicine.

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

Monday morning mancandy

Now, I feel  the need to go out and purchase khakis. That is why advertising is so powerful, because I know I won’t look anything like this guy, but I can’t get khakis out of my head, and I’m betting neither will you.

I love everything about this look. So much so, that I suddenly have a craving for an espresso.
