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 email@example.com.

French cop, Xavier Jugele, was 37 when he was murdered while on duty last week in Paris, after a gunman opened fire on the Champs-Élysées avenue. Xavier’s husband, Etienne Cardiles, gave an amazing eulogy to all of France (and now the world) translated below in the video that has since gone viral.
Perhaps what struck me the most aside from how poised Etienne was through his eulogy was how endearing and sentimental he was talking about Xavier. His repudiation of violence saying he will “suffer without hatred” is so poignant it made me emotional when watching so beware – you’ve been warned – have tissues nearby when you watch this two minute video.
Thanks to Francois, Jerome and Thibaut for sharing this with Sergio and Me.

One week from today is The Theater Offensive annual fund raiser climACTS! This year’s party, climACTS! Bounce features an array of performances that celebrate the LGBTQ community.
Performer, Big Freedia, will emcee the event and perform the up-tempo New Orleans style hip hop music she has made famous. Also performing is the dance troupe Skydance Philly, promising a gravity-defying, sensual performance.

Since 1989, The Theater Offensive has served its mission with groundbreaking interactive workshops and shows by, for, and about the LGBTQ community. Our work is called OUT In Your Neighborhood (OUT’hood) because we go beyond traditional theater spaces. OUT’hood reflects the diversity of Boston, gives voice to underserved LGBTQ community members, creates avenues for cross-cultural dialogue, and breaks down the barriers of homophobia, racism, bigotry and hate.
This week on Instagram I’m featuring a Boston-based personal trainer who is as fun as he is sexy. I’ve been meaning to feature Yovanny as a Furry Friday for quite some time but since I’ve failed to arrange to get a photo shoot, I figured in the interim I’d share with you his Instagram account. If you’re in the market for a personal trainer check out his website, www.yofityolife.com.
