Two Men, One Bed

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

  1. Gosh I don't know why I really love the 8th picture, they seem casual and affectionate at the same time...

  2. Thanks for putting this post together. Same sex couples of years gone by were so rarely photographed, it's great to see these guys so relaxed. I like #8 too, but the last one really does it for me.
