I 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!).
I 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.
One City Hall Square
Boston, MA 02201
FAX: (617) 635-4483
If you are unsure if you are registered or would like to register, you can easily do this online at Massachusetts Online Voter Registration System.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.

“Ready. Set. Gay.”
Massachusetts legislature is currently considering an important bill that will help provide relief for the arts and culture sector in Massachusetts, which includes organizations large and small that enrich our life and need your legislators support to provide funding for artists, local museums as well as students to gain access and experiences from our local arts and cultural organizations.
HOW YOU CAN HELP: Write or call your legislators at the State House today to voice your support for H.4879, An Act Enabling Partnerships for Growth.
The House expects to pass this bill by midnight, so your representative needs to hear from you ASAP. In most cases, the more sponsors an amendment has, the better its chances are for adoption.
