    I've always wanted to live in an era when everything was sepia-toned. icon_wink.gif

    I think it's photoshoped, Look at those triceps! No human being can get this big tricep in proportion to his body.

    I have a large collection of these pictures, from all periods going back to the 19th Century. I pull them out of old photo boxes at antique stores across the country. You can always tell the ones that are couples, not brothers or just buddies or family...it's just something about them.

    In this case, I would not agree. It's a photo of bodybuilder Bob Paris and his (then) spouse Rod Jackson when they were together in the early 1990's in an ad for Diesel Jeans. The photo was in a nostalgic WWII style and it was plastered across magazines like Out and Genre around 1993 0r 1994. Bob Paris certainly had huge arms and the rest of him was scarcely puny. I met him and Rod Jackson here in Coral Gables in 1994 when they came to do a book signing. They were big boys. Paris won serious bodybuilding awards in the 1980's and came out in an interview in Ironman Magazine in the summer of 1989.

    Very interesting, part of our hidden history. There's a ton of vintage photos of couples at this blog:

    I know this is gonna be an "uhhhh duuuh, you dousch bag!" moment...but...looking at these pics, two guys kissing, just makes me feel so at ease and soooo natural for me. I don't know why, and I def don't why I am expressing it now, but these actions, behaviors, whatever you want to call them, just make me feel like I really belong in this world.Ok, on that note, I will just shut the fuck up. But, thanks for reading.

    Its also interesting to note that the photos show the genuine affection each couple has for one another and not some 70's pornography that would say MMMMMM GAY SEX.....

    LOL icon_lol.gif Like their clothing...

    Those vintage pics are always awesome...it's ashamed that people couldn't be more open nationally back then....there's a sense of style and reservation during those time periods that I always appreciated when reading history.

    The photo is not unusual for the 19th Century, people often took a relaxed pose during a photo ( in groups shots is 'normal 'to see people actually laying down) because photography wasn't as instant as it was today. As for two men to pose like this, it was thought as innocent and relaxed. Soldiers would walk arm in arm, men would hold hands when they walked. This all changed rather abruptly in 1895 after Oscar Wilde was famously prosecuted for "gross indecency" under Section 11 of the Criminal Law Amendment Act 1885.
