Much thanks to the Twitter account @oldmasc for initially sharing this fantastic photo. I’m assuming this dates back to the 1970s. Can anyone offer insight on when this was taken?

Much thanks to Jerry who is a member of the Facebook Group, Vintage Workingmen Beefcake for sharing this photo. While I don’t know that these two are gay, their body language is certainly intimate enough. Perhaps what dates this photo more than anything else is the use of a chalkboard to list swimming heats.

This photo was credited to Rink Foto and comes from the Leslie Lohman Museum. The picture is dated 1984 and from the street sign, we can see it was taken in San Francisco’s traditional gay neighborhood, The Castro.

What a handsome couple. I love the intimacy captured as the two share a moment. I think the guy on the right has a knit tie which I believe were in fashion in the 1950s and happens to be when I think this photo may have been taken. Anyone able to date the photo based on their appearance?

I have no idea what is going on in this photo. I assume the photo dates back to the 1950s based on the pegged pants on the guy at the bottom of the photo and hairstyles, but I’d love to hear what you think. Thanks to @oldmasc for the photo.

I’ve posted the undoctored version of this photo this morning on my Twitter account, @BosGuy (and no you don’t need to have Twitter to see someone’s posts).

I swiped this photo from a tumblr site that posts a lot of vintage gay images. According to the post this is a photograph of two men outside of a gay club in Europe from the 1970s. Curious what ever happened to them and who’s beer that is off to the left. I do love this photo of the men embracing.

I believe I’ve previously posted this photograph but it is so rare that I come across photos of men of color from years past I like to share them whenever I can. Based on their clothes, can anyone help identify when these two handsome men may have been photographed?

This looks like an intense make out session in progress. Who would’ve snapped such a photograph? I’d have been ticked for sure. Based on the radio on the desk and the hairstyles in the photo, I’m going to guess this was taken in the early 1980s. Can anyone help identify when this may have been taken?

Based on the television console and what I believe are speakers behind the blond with beautiful locks, I’d guess this was taken in the 1970s. Can anyone help identify when this may have been taken?
