Pioneering Photographs Of Gay Life In The 1960s
“In The Gay Essay I wanted to celebrate the gays that were living openly,” said photographer Anthony Friedkin, referring to his first project. “It upset me tremendously to see the ways gays were being treated. I had friends that got beat up in bars. I was furious about it. Even now, when I look through the book, it gets very emotional for me.”
Friedkin’s goal in The Gay Essay was to deepen the representation of gay people by helping the world move past the stereotypes, which is why he began documenting gay culture in Los Angeles and San Francisco between 1969 and 1972. See more of Friedkin’s historic work at TIME.
