Recently I saw some of these vintage photos on Buzzfeed and decided to check out the comments. Most scoffed at the idea there was anything 'gay' about the men in the pictures, and explained that men were just 'more confident' or more (hetero) affectionate in that time. Well that might be true, but as any gay man will tell you....'gaydar' often clues us in to signals our straight counterparts don't often see. A look, a well placed hand, lack of space, intimate posing...are just some of the clues or signals we've looked at for ages...you know back when you had to really hide or perhaps die. Will we ever know for sure if they were gay or straight? Of course not...but I'll bet on my gaydar over any straighty's scoffing any day of the week. Wouldn't you?
