In the 1930's the gay photographer, George Platt Lynes, shot a series of nude photos of a struggling young actor, Yul Brynner. Brynner would go on to become a huge star on Broadway in "The King and I" and the film version would make him a movie star.
Brynner was probably bi-sexual and not exclusively gay, but he was known to enjoy the company of men. Yul hung out with the artistic gay crowd in his day: besides Platt Lynes, there was the actor, Hurd Hatfield and the novelist, Manuel Puig to name a few.
Since Yul is most famous for his gorgeous bald head, here is a later photo, in case you don't recognize him with hair.
