Turn of the Century Slumber Parties

Thank you all of you for your marvelous suggestions of queer Victorians to profile this month! I have some serious Wikipedia-ing to do, but in the meantime, here are some of my favorite LGBT-etc pictures from the turn of the century, all courtesy of The Bilerico Project.



Slumber party!


Boys dancing cutely!


Drag Queens!


A Detroit baseball banner and two ladies kissing, with the caption “Sometimes the girls kiss each other, but it’s only between times.”


This one is my favorite. I don’t understand why Detroit was advertising baseball with ladies kissing, and if anyone could explain I would love you dearly, but even if not I still love it so.

Be Sociable, Share!

  1. because the allure of two women kissing is a timeless thing. lol.

  2. It would be cool if some of this hit the next Steampunk Magazine! (BTW, when will #8 be out?)
