Black Friday is traditionally considered the start of the Christmas shopping season and is best characterized mad house of crazed shoppers invading every mall and retail shop. As a result, each “Black Friday” I share my version, which I think most of my readers will agree is far more palatable than heading to a mall.

This week’s photo is of Freddie Mercury and Kenny Everett who first met in 1974 and became close friends. While they never were lovers, Kenny helped Freddie come to terms with his homosexuality while they enjoyed the London nightlife which is undboubtably where this photo was taken (presumably early 1980s).
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.

To balance the rather serious nature of this morning’s post about the rally against hate at the State House (I can’t even put into words how disturbing it is that these calls for action are even necessary), here’s a bit of humor.
I’m sure every gay or lesbian couple reading this has at one time been asked which one of them is the fork. By the way, when I’ve been asked that question in the past my response has been, “fork you”, always said with a smile of course.
