This week’s photo dates to the early 1970s when gay activists Scott Smith (left) and Harvey Milk (right) dated. They met in NYC in 1969, but by the early 1970s they were living together in San Francisco. If you’re not familiar with the work Harvey Milk and his partner did for our community in the 1970s, I highly recommend watching the 2008 movie MILK, which earned an Oscar for best original screen play and best actor.

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?

I wish I knew more about these two men, because they look like they were a fun couple.  By their attire, I would assume the photo was taken in the late 180os or possibly the early 1900s; pre WWI.

This week’s photo came from Pintrest and according to the description dates back to WWII. Unclear if they are actually a couple, but I’d like to think so.

This week’s photo was sent to me from my friend Steve Ali. I’m unsure of the place or date but from the attire I would guess the 1940s or 1950s. Regardless of the date or location, it is clear the two men are happy to see each other.
