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?

Photos: Ross William Hamilton/The Oregonian

The photo above is of Eric Marcoux and Eugene Woodworth who first met in Chicago in 1953. Woodworth was a ballet dancer, and Marcoux was just leaving a Trappist monastery. The couple is probably best known for Woodworth marrying his longtime companion after he had been diagnosed with congestive heart failure and given only weeks to live. At the time Oregon didn’t recognize same sex marriages so they married in Washington at Clark County Courthouse.

I dedicate this weekly post to men like Eric and Eugene. Do you have a photograph you would like to share? Email me at bosguymail@gmail.com.

soldiers kissing

Above is a photo of two men enjoying what looks like a fairly passionate kiss and embrace. I’m going to guess this was taken in the 1940s, but honestly have no idea. Anyone else think they know when this photo might have been taken?

louis halsey and john spofford

This week’s vintage gay photograph is of Louis Halsey and John Spofford who were married in New York City in November of 2011 after having been together for 64 years. They look quite dapper in the more current photo and both were very good looking in their photo from more than five decades earlier.

gay couple cuddlingI love this photo because the two men seem to be enjoying themselves as they cuddle for a photo outside. I can’t imagine they can be all that comfortable in their three piece suits but they seem quite at home in each other’s arms.
