Military Men Dance Together In Vintage Photo
I love seeing these old vintage photos of gay men that were taken long before anyone even referred to men as gay. I always wonder what life must have been like for them. It couldn’t have been easy.
A vintage photo of unknown origin shows two shirtless military guys, dancing chest to chest and cheek to cheek.
You can check it out, here. And if you do a simple search sometimes you’ll come up with more vintage pics like this.
It’s also interesting because two men dancing together like this has always been so taboo, and even today it still is in most places.
Young Male Refugees Selling Sex To Survive
This piece talks about what goes on Berlin’s Tiergarten Park with young Afghan and Iranian refugees, and what they are forced to do to survive.
“If you didn’t pay any attention, you wouldn’t notice it,” says Khamis, 31. “But the prostitution was happening right in front of them [around the public toilets]. The elephant was in the room and no one wanted to see it.”
Here’s a link to read it in full. There are some chilling photos. The article also states that although prostitution is legal in Germany, it’s far more complicated for refugees who are waiting for their documents. And there are teenagers involved. One of the boys calls this way of life, “one step away from hell.”
I really despise older gay men who target young gay men in their teens.
From the day they meet for the first time until the day their lives change forever, Harrison Parker and Morton Starr were destined for greatness—and each other. A Starr is Born follows the paths of handsome, badly-behaving rock star Harrison Parker and sexy gender-bending performer Morton Starr, who is just starting his career.
Morton is so madly in love with his husband, Harrison, he’ll do anything to please him, including overlooking all his self-destructive issues. However, as openly gay Morton gains more fame and success in the mainstream with his popular gay love songs and his unique gender-bending image, and Harrison continues to slide downhill, there comes a point where everything has to change. And when that climax finally happens, Morton isn’t certain about anything in his future or his marriage.
