Just watched Ian MacKinnon’s sweet video of Cody Jo (below) and forgot about this amazing tune! So here are the lyrics… sing along to this beautiful queer classic from 1934!

Not sure why, but once in a while old Sissydude posts disappear from public view, like this one. Since Walt Cessna’s Tumblr works always reminded me of Carl Van Vechten’s beautiful photos I thought I’d do a repost. Enjoy!
Jan 12/2011: So I’ve just been falling in love with these Van Vechten photos of young up & coming African American stars like Pearl Bailey (picture above), Billy Dee Williams, Jeffrey Holder, Diahann Carroll, Eartha Kitt, Ruby Dee & James Earl Jones… the patterned fabric backdrops, the silly (yet perfect) props… sooooo good. NOW let me share my faves (get ready… there’s a lot). Extensive archive HERE @ BEINECKE LIBRARY
So sad to hear of Walt Cessna’s passing today. I really love his work and have had a few amusing Facebook conversations with him through the years. My favourite conversation was a couple of years back. Cessna messaged me saying that he wanted me to edit/curate his images for a book. I of course was very keen on doing this. I told him “yes” without knowing any details. Within two minutes he messaged me back to say “great” and that he’d like me to come over for dinner “tonight”. I told him sadly I couldn’t make it that night cus I lived in Toronto. That was the last I heard of the project. But we still kept in touch and he always appreciated when I posted his stuff on Sissydude.
We were part of the early queer Tumblr tribes that obsessively shared our love for sexy correctness. I adored his Tumblr photos… they reminded me of Carl Van Vechten’s photographs with a splash of Tiger Beat pin-ups by way of
Since I’m an obsessive guy myself, I took a few hours and went through Cessna’s Tumblr archive and pulled the images that spoke to me today.
If you’d like to know more about Walt and see more of his work, I’ve added links here.
Correct Love to you Walter. XXXO John
