Vintage gay

louis halsey and john spofford

This week’s vintage gay photograph is of Louis Halsey and John Spofford who were married in New York City in November of 2011 after having been together for 64 years. They look quite dapper in the more current photo and both were very good looking in their photo from more than five decades earlier.

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
