Thirty years ago, homos had a heart on for promiscuity and the right wing vilified us. Today homos have a heart on for monogamy and marriage and the right wing vilifies us. Let’s face it. They don’t like us. We’re here, we’re queer – get on with it!

I think it is really Rotten that we are still not allowed to get married in New York State- thanks to a bunch of Republican Assholes in Albany. Also adding to the list of assholes are the Democrats who voted against the bill included Sens. Joseph Addabbo, Shirley Huntley, George Onorato and Hiram Monserrate of Queens, Carl Kruger of Brooklyn, Ruben Diaz Sr. of the Bronx, Darrel Aubertine of the North Country, and William Stachowski of the Buffalo area. – Vincenzo Aiosa – Rantourage

Frank Jump and Vincenzo Aiosa got married on Valentine’s Day, February 14th 2004 in Toronto, Canada.

Thank you Equal Marriage Canada, The Great City and People of Toronto, The Honorable Justice Harvey Brownstone and his partner Marty, and Brendan Fay and Jesús Lebrón!

The photos appear in the following two books:
Affectionate Men: A Photographic History of a Century of Male Couples, 1850-1950 by Russell Bush and Ron Lieberman
Dear Friends: American Photographs of Men Together, 1840-1918 ~ David Deitcher
The slideshow just shows a small portion. I encourage you to purchase them. – Frederick Delius

Affectionate Men Part I & II
A Photographic History of a Century of Male Couples

I found these photos to be both beautiful and profound. The times between 1860 and 1930 men were more free to hold hands, hug, even kiss, without the fear of being riduculed, beaten or labeled.

Regardless if the men pictured here were lovers or friends, the photographs let us all realize that today we live in a society where our emotional freedom and tolerance of others should have moved forward. Instead we seem to be moving backward every day.

In spite of our great and positive leaps in science, medicine and fantastic inventions, as humankind we seem to have taken a rather significant negative leap into a world that is filled with hate and intolerance, one that has lost the innocence, simplicity and joy one feels in experiencing these photographs of a special and more unique time and place. – Frederick Delius

Favorite quote of the day: “If we give equal rights to gays, everyone will want them!”

BECOME A CITIZEN LOBBYIST – NO EXCUSES – noexcuses.hrc.org

Call your representatives and insist on repealing DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act), ending DADT (Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy in the US Military) & Passing ENDA (Employment Non-Discrimination Act)

Barney, I love you but I think you are 100% wrong about this march being a waste of time. The 1979 March was instrumental in raising my awareness and sharpening my political focus. EVERY generation needs to assemble, march & create networks for as long as we are marginalized. Every one of us needs to become a citizen lobbyist. COME OUT! GET INVOLVED! LOBBY!
