Sailors in Love




















These vintage photos represent just a small fragment of our LGBT history; unfortunately so much of it has purposely been destroyed. Since the men and women in these photos are unknown, it's pretty much impossible to tell it they were a gay couple or just "good friends." Most photographs of gay couples were eventually destroyed by horrified family members. For every photo that I may have mistakenly identified as gay, thousands more were burned or torn into pieces to keep a family secret.

Arax Studio of Paris


Born in Armenia, Gregor Arax to Paris in 1922.  He became very involved in the French bodybuilding competitions while working as a photojournalist. Arax eventually became the official photographer for these bodybuilders.








His gorgeous photographs of handsome young actors and athletes were published in fitness magazines from 1934 to 1975.  These fitness magazines, heavily illustrated with his sexy photos of scantily clad or nude bodybuilders, became extremely popular with gay men, for obvious reasons.
