Beefcake photo of actor George Nader, who may be best remembered by some for his role in the low budget sci-fi movie, Robot Monster (1953).  When he died in 2001 at age 81 he was survived by his partner of 55 years, Mark Miller.
Trivia from IMDB:
“In their early film prime (1950s), he and fellow “beefcake” star Rock Hudson helped cover for each other in protecting their “straight” image in Hollywood.
Despite the fact Nader’s career was more or less sabotaged by Universal and sacrificed to the tabloids in order to save Rock’s much more lucrative reputation, Hudson and Nader remained life-long friends. Nader was named one of the beneficiaries of Hudson’s $27M estate when the star died of AIDS in 1985.
After Nader was finished in films, he turned to writing. His 1978 novel “Chrome” broke major ground in that it was the first sci-fi thriller to have a homosexual theme (gay robots!).”
