Camping It Up!

I love the carefree, happy and gay spirit of these vintage pics of men camping it up for the camera; what better way to start the New Year? Thanks so much for your support these past few years, I really appreciate it. I have lots of great vintage photos and gay history stories coming up in 2015; it's going to be a great year!

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.
