    Beautiful scene, so nice as contrast to the circus of fashion shows.

    Love the photo just as much as the other “gentle” one! A sweet, intimate scne, and of course a lovely sunset (or sunrise?).

    Are these the same two guys? If so, then they are very romantic fellas. Well, another great shot either way.

    I love this! I look at my two young sons who are always wrapped around each other and I think we are all born innately gentle. Surviving to man-hood with this outward tenderness in tact, particularly here in Australia (and many other western cultures), is not so common.

      Thank you, Sophie, I concur that raising gentle boys into gentle men is a challenge. We’ve come far in expanding the spectrum of possibility for females, but continue to insist upon a much narrower set of bounds for males.

      from Judy Chicago:

      And then all that has divided us will merge
      And then compassion will be wedded to power
      And then softness will come to a world that is harsh and unkind
      And then both men and women will be gentle
      And then both women and men will be strong
      And then no person will be subject to another’s will
      And then all will be rich and free and varied
      And then the greed of some will give way to the needs of many
      And then all will share equally in the Earth’s abundance
      And then all will care for the sick and the weak and the old
      And then all will nourish the young
      And then will cherish life’s creatures
      And then all will live in harmony with one another and the Earth
      And then everywhere will be called Eden once again.

    I’ve read your blog for 6 years and have never commented, but these “gentle men” photos are really moving me. This one reminds me of many young love moments in my memory. Truly lovely.

    Perhaps this romantic homoerotic images of the gentle kind, will a good preamble to underline the fact that in India “homosexuality is mostly a taboo subject and that in Indian civil society and for the government. Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code makes sex with persons of the same gender punishable by law.”

      It is also important to remind that this rule was created and strictly enforces by the English when they colonized India.
      The prudishness of Indian society is an heritage from the English ruling
