Much of our photographic history has been purposely destroyed. Since most of the men and women in these photos are unknown, it's pretty much impossible to tell it they were a gay couple or just "good friends." Most photographs of gay couples were eventually destroyed by horrified family members. For every photo that I may have mistakenly identified as gay, thousands more were burned or torn into pieces to keep a family secret and keep us out of sight.

I'd seen something like this for women - but this is the first time I've seen the men's version. So here you go - images of hundreds (if not thousands) of men in various countries merged together to create the "average" face for each nationality.

Average looking person from every country…
