Loved this.

After the song "The Rose" ...in the second song there are some
beautiful spoken words.

Why "Fan Fair" ? These people deserve to be celebrated.
Wanting him to come back... before anyone notices
part of the world has not moved...since he left.

Loved it!

I hope you don't mind, I've copied it and placed it in the "Society" thread.  I've given you proper credit.  ;)

Just beautiful!

Thank you!

I used to work next to an LGBT Bookstore and looked at, and often bought, some books that featured photos like
these. I recall some of the titles were Picturing Men, Affectionate Men and At Ease. The latter one was all photos
of the WWII era.

Setting these types of photos to music is just a wonderful bonus and a great way to look at photos like this.

When I was watching a documentary a few years ago, concerning LGBT history in Chicago, they mentioned the song
"Baby Face" and that it was written for the songwriter's boyfriend!  Who knew? They showed a short montage of photos
while the song was playing.
_______

I just tried a search about that and could find nothing. Neither the lyricist or composer or the song page mentions this.
Not that LGBT history isn't often hidden. I wish I knew what that program I watched was called now.

Very poignant. All old photos are, but gay ones especially so.

It's a beautiful video, thanks for posting it. Reminds me of this one, which I have probably already posted, because it's one of my favourite songs.

I'm happy you liked it, it's one of the few songs that put a lump in my throat e-ve-ry time I listen to it.

I didn‘t really know where to post this, but I NEED to declare my love for John Oliver!

I have to thank Armie Hammer for introducing me to JO via the great The wax and the furious!!  :laugh:

Since then I watched many many clips from Last Week Tonight on YouTube (luckily there are a LOT of them).
No I also moved on to John Oliver as a talkshow guest himself and he is adorable, witty, cheeky and hilarious!

And now I found this:

I really can‘t get enough of him!!!  :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:
When I feel the warmth of your very soul
I forget I'm cold and crying
When your lips touch mine and I lose control
I forget I'm old and dying

That is a really funny video!

And Fan Fair was the perfect place to put it!  Feel free to use this thread for any celeb you need to declare love for!

Or, post more of John Oliver!
