Guys with Guys and Gals with Gals

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

For every photo that I may have mistakenly identified as gay, thousands more were burned or torn into pieces to keep a family secret.
