PHOTOS: F&%k Yeah Queer Vintage Offers A Virtual Glimpse At Gay Yesteryear

One of the drawbacks of being gay is that you can’t exactly pore through Aunt Gladys’ old photo album and see yourself and your sexuality reflected in its pages (unless you’re very lucky).

Thankfully the tumblr site Fuck Yeah Queer Vintage is collecting images of LGBT people from the dawn of photography through the post-Stonewall era. Though its creators admit the queerness of some of the subjects is “ambiguous,” many—if not most—reveal a rich gay world most contemporary gays and lesbians never dreamed existed.

Go to Fuck Yeah Queer Vintage for more images from our great gay past.
