This vintage photo tells a very gay, very nostalgic story

We’ve spoken before about our love for the subreddit r/AccidentalRenaissance. In this charming corner of the Internet, modern images harken back to the past and often stop us in our tracks with their remarkable beauty.

Things also tend to get quite gay sometimes—after all, we gays are known for our artistic eye. Recently, a user posted a photo from an old undeveloped camera roll that reminds us of a time before Instagram and iPhones.

Developed the photos of my disposable camera I bought for a party some time ago, was not disappointed

I never thought I’d find myself talking about the nostalgic value of physical photos, but here we are. There’s something about taking a shot like that that feels weirdly magical in the present day. Back when you didn’t know how your photos were going to come out, there was no live-action editing or scrolling through photo options to find the most IG-friendly version. It was just…you know, vibes.

What viewers see in this photo is a classic cross section of what looks like a college-era party. One guy shirtlessly stares at the camera, another guy raises his hands to the sky as if in worship, and the two guys in the middle are hard at work sucking face. What a time to be alive!

After the original poster shared the image, commenters were eager to see more. The poster responded that he has plenty more, but that they’re not exactly safe for primetime viewing. We can imagine.
