Wonderful pictures. It’s fascinating to see the men in some of those old pics who look a little proud and rebellious and also a little scared because of how much more homophobic society was back then. And thanks for including a variety of races.
great to see’em
Fifth photo down, in front of the Idaho National Bank, those guys are flirting with two pretty girls standing in front of them. Doesn’t diminish the affection they’re showing each other, but shows we can’t assume all of these photos are expressing homosexual love. And, yes, I’m as gay as you are.
Awesome pics. Doesn’t that sailor sitting on the barrel look like a young George Bush? :-)
I like the third photo, from bottom to top. The guys are impressively beautiful.
I agree with you about the third photo from the bottom. Those guys are handsome, but they look like brothers to me, not boyfriends.
I have old pics of my grandfather in World War 1 which show him and his buddies with their arms over each others shoulders and in virtually the same pose in trunks at some lake/beach in France. He was definitely uber straight. Also, tt wasn’t unusual for men to sleep in the same bed at the turn of the 20th century.
Although the homophobia back then was much worse than it is today obviously, I don’t believe this kind of touching between guys was necessarily viewed as evidence of being gay in those days. Some of these guys are probably gay but I think many are friends–or just goofing off.
Don’t kid yourself. Affection may not be considered ‘masculine’ by str8t guys standards but there are way more hetero/mano-on-mano sex occurring daily than statistic reports.
I think so too.My friends and I we talk pretty open about sex .And I know more than one”straight ” men who call this”watching a porn together”:) .My personal statistic is around 8% of men are gay/bi plus around another 12% who have a least one or more than 1 same experience ( maybe women even a few % more).
This is no scientific report , just based on what I read plus reality I know about.
Guess I didn’t know the meaning of masculine. Never felt that showing another man affection or emotions made me any less masculine. All the photos here I would say are very masculine men. To me those who are feminine (or less masculine) are the limp wristed, fem sounding, queen types, the ones going around calling each other girls and women’s names. No judgement, just my definition. I am a man, I love men, I do man things with other men and that includes sometimes shedding tears at a movie or cuddling when feeling down.
loren_1955::)I think so too was to the “hand job” /”straight’ men Thing and NOT to the affection Thing.Beside I think it makes a man more man anyway if he is able to show affection/ emotions And who knows the sexual orientation of all these man anyway? I am sorry for not writing it more clearly.Its late here and I have to stay awake till 6.30 am.Got it and stop writing tired comments!
At least one of these men-on-men is sitting on something nice (sailor, picture #12) :-)
#3 from the top, on the right, is young Barack Obama, right?
