EVERYTHING IS SO SERIOUS RIGHT NOW. Or is it just me? Facebook friends have just been serving up all this great content about class, economics, banking and all of the big topics of the day. And Steve Jobs! And just the terror that any of the Republicans could ever be President again. It's just a lot to handle.
Meanwhile Halloween is twenty-five days away. Yes, Gay Christmas is coming back to save us all from the terrifying world in which we live. To get you geared up, here's a gallery of dudes at a haunted house taken with a hidden camera. It's a good time.
See the set at Vogue.
Perhaps you love dance or perhaps you love pictures of gays from history or perhaps you love both. If any of the above is true, then here is a set of photos of gay dancers from the early 20th century just for you.
Or it's somebody that looks like her? Perhaps a CGI or a wax figure? Photochopped and cropped? As mentioned before ...
Here is a collection of Kodachrome pictures of New York from the 1940's. The full collection was recently donated to Indiana University (my alma mater) and has thousands of photos from photographer Charles Weever Cushman taken all over the world.
Paco y Manolo are a photographic duo who have a magazine called Kink that's celebrating its fifth anniversary with a sale on past issues. Some issues are not as cheap as others and some come with a photographic print of the main subject of that issue, but all can be found here.
To my eye, these guys have a great technique that has resulted in images that strike just the right balance between art, porn and beauty.
Some favorite images of mine, including the uncensored version of the photo above, after the jump ('cuz they NSFW. 'Course!)...
Rod promised and I'm making good...
We received a link to Peter Beste's shoot of Desi Santiago's rituals and installations for Visionaire 60: Religion from its star, Ladyfag, though you might not recognize her?!
Stunning work, no? (Did you follow the link? Do it!) Click through for my favorite image (NSFW)...
The riot kissers have been identified (Friday, actually, but we've been "busy" here at FYF.) and are real. The photo was not staged and everyone (in the couple) is ok.
Mr. Chivalrous is Australian, turns out...doesn't change clothes often and is rather unheeding of what's around him. At least according to Mom.
The above photo, captured during the street riots in Vancouver (over a fucking Hockey game), is pretty amazing, no? I'm telling you right here and right now that, in the riots that will occur if marriage equality fails in the New York Senate (and yes, things will be probably get messy if this bill fails), I plan to be fucking in the middle of the street, too. Seriously Republican Senators, if you do not want gays fucking in the streets, then get on the right side of history and pass the damn bill.
From the La Petit Mort website:
"Devin Elijah is a 27 year old self taught photographer of Jewish and African American descent. The subject range of his portrait work spans the diverse stream of personalities that have populated his life and consciousness and subsequently his art since arriving in New York in 2007."
He also shot these, of yours truly, several years ago after a rather traumatic experience.
