Female impersonation need say nothing about sexual identity, but it has for a long time been almost an institutionalized aspect of gay male culture.
Photography: Gay Male, Pre-Stonewall Photography: Gay Male, Pre-Stonewall
Although sparse in images documenting the gay community, pre-Stonewall gay male photography blurs the boundaries between art, erotica, and social history.
Erotic and Pornographic Art: Gay Male Erotic and Pornographic Art: Gay Male
Given the historic stigma around making, circulating, and possessing overtly homoerotic images, the visual arts have been especially important for providing a socially sanctioned arena for depicting the naked male body and suggesting homoerotic desire.

Mike Buonaiuto explaining the Out4Marriage project.

Out4Marriage.org is a YouTube project that spotlights why individuals support marriage equality. Modeled on Dan Savage and Terry Miller's "It Gets Better" project that reassures young people that things will get better in the future, the Out4Marriage project was conceived in support of the campaign to change the law to allow same-sex couples to marry in the United Kingdom.

The project was conceived by PinkNews founder Benjamin Cohen and Mike Buonaiuto, the director of "Homecoming," a moving Coalition for Equal Marriage video that went viral almost as soon as it was released.

Although the campaign was only launched a few weeks ago, already high-profile politicians and celebrities have made videos in which they explain why they are "coming out for marriage."

The videos that have been made so far concentrate on the campaign for equal marriage in the United Kingdom, but the YouTube project is expected to eventually go global.

In the video below, Mike Buonaiuto explains the project.

In the video below, the UK Home Secretary Theresa May explains why she is out4marriage.

Former Home Secretary, Justice Minister, and Foreign Secretary Jack Straw is also out4marriage.

In the following video, gay activist and human rights hero Peter Tatchell explains why he is out4marriage.

Equality Minister Lynn Featherstone is also out4marriage.

Liberal Democrat MP Stephen Gilbert explains why he is out4marriage.

Actor and Member of the European Parliament Michael Cashman is out4marriage.
