It was the first thing that came to mind when I stumbled upon this romantic photo. If you don’t get the reference, then I suppose it might not make as much sense but it remains a beautiful photograph.
Here’s to hoping that you end your day with an unexpected embrace and kiss.
“in love in provincetown, 1936”
I’m toying with making this a weekly post. Let me know your thoughts.
I want to dedicate this and future posts, featuring vintage gay photos, 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.
Joao Victor Lisboa – Brazilian Model / Photographer
This weekend I was pleasantly surprised to see Homotography featuring self-portraits of a friend of mine. Joao Victor Lisboa (not Lisbon as they printed) is a young, talented model/photographer based in Sao Paulo.
I can tell you that Joao Victor is every bit as handsome in person as he appears in his photos. He has a wicked smile and a sense of humor to match. You can see Joao Victor’s full portfolio online here, joaovictorlisboa.com.

Another blog I respect and enjoy, Accidental Bear, has also put several of his self portraits on view.
My friend and local photographer, Patrick Lentz, posted photographs of Nick who lives up on the North Shore, on Friday. The 25 year old from Gloucester loves the camera and agreed to take a series of photographs with Patrick, several of which have a very nice Valentine’s Day theme.
I’ve included a few photos below but you can see more of Nick on Flickr. You can see more of Patrick’s photography here, www.PatrickLentz.com.
Frank Diaz, by Robert Mapplethorpe
Robert Mapplethorpe was a controversial photographer who’s homoerotic work created a national debate over public funding of art in the 1980s. Unfortunately, Mapplethorpe passed away in Boston in 1989 at the age of 42 due to complications from HIV/AIDS, but his work lives on.

First reported in The Advocate back in June 2013, Gay Voices on Huffington Post recently wrote an article about this bold photography project that brings celebrities together to pose as same-sex couples and families to combat homophobia and provide positive images of recognizable figures engaging in queer relationships.
The series, called “IMAGINARY COUPLES,” is the brainchild of French artist and photographer Olivier Ciappa and has been displayed in galleries and cities around the world from Paris to Lima. “IMAGINARY COUPLES” is tentatively scheduled to hit the United States this summer, possibly in Los Angeles.
Earlier this month I wrote about the Instagram account @intergaycial. This time I wanted to feature the Instagram account of a guy who lives in Boston and whom I’ve met socially, although I wouldn’t go so far as to suggest we know each other, @chrisnogiec.
The few times we’ve met, I’ve been struck by how friendly Chris is. I’m also impressed by the fact that he’s quite a smart guy; he has his PhD, is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist and is a Certified Sports Nutritionist. All that aside, he has an active Instagram account filled with pg-13 photos I’m sure my primarily gay and female readership will enjoy.
