Our Secret




























These vintage photos represent just a small fragment of our LGBT history; unfortunately so much of it has purposely been destroyed. Since most of 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.

Let's Help James Bidgood!


James Bidgood’s homoerotic films and photographs, were a shock to 1960's audiences. They featured beautiful young men set against elaborately crafted backdrops, drenched in bright colors and gayer than anything the world had ever seen before. His aesthetic was both campy and pulpy, yet incredibly beautiful! Bidgood's work heavily inspired such artists as Pierre et Gilles and David LaChapelle.


 His film legendary homoerotic film, ‘Pink Narcissus,” was shrouded in mystery when it was first released in the early 60's. Bidgood chose to have it credited to ‘Anonymous’ to hide his identity, leading to rumors that it was the work of Andy Warhol or Kenneth Anger. It wasn’t until the 1980’s that he stepped forward to accept the credit.
Bidgood is back in the spotlight these days, now that his work has been rediscovered by whole new generation. Still working, and now in his 80's, Bidgood is asking for help updating his photography equipment. You can make a donation by using the link below:

Lesbian Wedding Photos, circa 1900 to 1930

Since most of 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 and lesbian 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.
