Happy Valentine's Day!

If you think it's hard to find the partner of your dreams, just imagine how hard it was just a few generations ago! Gays and Lesbians were forced to live very closeted lives in order to avoid persecution, arrest and the rejection of their families. Not that everything is perfect these days, but we sure have come along way! Happy Valentine's Day, from Homo History!

 These vintage photos represent just a small fragment of our LGBT history; unfortunately so much of it has purposely been destroyed. Since the men and women in these photos are unknown, it's pretty much impossible to tell if 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 or lesbian, thousands more were burned or torn into pieces to keep a family secret.
