Saturday morning coffee

blue, hunk, handsomeI love this photo of these two guys but can’t figure out why only one of them has a coffee.  I also happen to follow “Chico” a South African on Twitter. Sadly, we’ve never met, although both men live here in Boston (lucky Boston!).

How to vote by mail in Massachusetts

Motley tshirtI believe that voting is a civic responsibility incumbent upon all of us. However, voting during a pandemic can be tricky so I apprerciate that Governor Charlie Baker signed a bill into law earlier this month, allowing all registered voters in Massachusetts to vote by mail in the primary and general elections this fall.

How to vote by mail in Massachusetts

Voting by mail in Massachusetts is easy, requiring you to do the following: 

1 – Fill out the 2020 Vote By Mail application

2 – Send the ballot back via postal delivery, email or fax. For the Sept. 1 State Primary, your application must arrive at your local election office by Aug. 26 and for the national election on Nov. 3 it must arrive by Oct. 28.

Note: Your signature must be visible and everything legible and complete to ensure your ballot is not disqualified.

Vintage gay

Much thanks to Peter Miller who is a regular reader (and provider of great photos like the one above) to this blog.  According to Peter this is a real photo postcard dating to 1910.  The front says “BUSS” AND “HUGGING”  N.R.  On the back is written MISS GRACE LINDSLEY.

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.

This week on Instagram: okaprol

handsome, pinkConsidering this weekly post falls on a Wednesday, I couldn’t resist using this photo from @okaprol’s Instagram account (thanks for allowing me to make a Mean Girls reference – it never gets old).

I don’t know much about this handsome guy other than the fact that we both live in Boston. The photo above was taken in Davis Square – not far from my home in the South End. Who knows, perhaps our paths will cross at some point? I really enjoy posting photos of local guys and have been enjoying following this account for several months now. Check him out – he’s quite handsome and fun to follow.
