Happy Pride From Photojimsf

Happy Pride. This vintage moment is from the Gay Freedom Day parade of 1986. I guess back then freedom was more important than pride.

Pictured is Joe Smith, wearing a MEN’S room sign headress and not much else.

Joe died a few years later from HIV, one of dozens more pictured during happier times in my upcoming photo exhibit “Black And White Nostalgia”.

It’s at STRUT SF, July 2019. Opening reception is Friday July 12.

Vintage Gay SF — Who Is He?

20190427_161855 strut show-017336091192138706178..jpg

This image is from a gay pride parade around 1989 or 90. It’s one of dozens under consideration for two photo exhibits this summer, at the Harvey Milk Center in June, and at STRUT SF this July.

Intimidating at first, this tattood hunk of muscle was quite sweet in the end. He took my card but I never heard from him. Several collectors have suggested that he’s made a few adult films.

Waddaya think? Hot or not? Your type? Should I put his picture in the show? Know who he is, and where I could contact him these days?

Sexy Songkran

For some, the Thai New Year holiday named Songkran is an excuse to strip down and show off all that hard work at the gym.
