Illicit gay photobooth kiss would have gotten both of these guys in serious trouble when the photo was taken in 1953
Photobooths were super popular for homosexuals to keep a memento of their relationship when they were first introduced because of their privacy. Getting developed footage of two people of the same gender kissing in 1950 (as well as being caught in any homosexual activity) would have the subjects charged and sentenced to undergo rehabilitation, it could even land them facing jail time.
