GB meets GB by Ginger Brooks Takahashi
She was married to a white woman
Gladys Bentley, 1907–1960, 2010
“Looking for traces of queer histories in Harlem, I stumbled upon the men’s bathhouse, tales of speakeasies such as the Clam House (where gender-bending performers were the norm) and finally Gladys Bentley. She immediately caught my eye—a black woman in a tux. The year was 1920-something. The Clam House was on 133rd Street between Lenox and Seventh avenues. Gladys was writing and singing obscene versions of popular songs there.”
Moving this to the top, as per request. :)

I don’t think the 80’s technically count as vintage, but it’s over 20 years old and too fun not to share.
No problem! I reply to all the messages I get.A
Awesome! Thanks for linking to us!
Your post is in the queue. Thank you for the submission. :) We love you too!
First of all, thank you! And a lot of our photos come from various places on flickr, which have a lot of old photos like this and actually have whole groups dedicated to queer vintage. Otherwise, they’re just from various places throughout the internet, which usually I try to credit. And some of them I had saved on my computer before I made this blog, but couldn’t remember where I got them from exactly.
Thanks for the recommend! It’s fine about the sticker. :) thank YOU for your support!
It’s that time again! Please recommend us in the historical category.
