Rumors and Hope

I first visited Black’s Beach in the early 90s with no phone or app to guide me. I followed rumors and desperation to a dusty parking lot, down a treacherous goat path, to a beautiful beach dotted with men, mostly naked. As an art student at nearby UCSD, I brought my camera with me more than once. But to this day I have found zero pictures. I have no visual history of me learning how to cruise as a gay man. Rumors and Hope began as a digital project curated by Christopher Clary. All the images are from Google maps. The company is supposed to avoid people and faces, but fortunately for me, they are terrible at this.
