\" Hidden in the Open is photo essay and also collection of African-American gay male couples throughout background going as far back as the 19th century. Trent Kelley, the collector as well as chronicler, notes that 'a few of these photos are sure to be gay and others may not. Completion result is speculative at ideal for want in applying a label. Not every gesture articulated between men was a sign of male to male intimacies. Surely, what all photographs in this publication have in common are signs of Afro American male love as well as love that were recorded for posterity without anxiety and embarassment.'\"
