These vintage photos represent just a small fragment of our LGBT history; unfortunately so much of it has purposely been destroyed. Since the brave young sailors in these photos are unknown, it's pretty much impossible to tell if they were gay couples 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.
