Gay Sex In The 70’s

Director: Joseph F Lovett

USA 2005| 67 mins


Thirteen men and one woman look back at gay life and sex in Manhattan and Fire Island – from Stonewall (June, 1969) to the first reporting on AIDS (June, 1981) and the various venues for anonymous trysts: bathhouses, discos, the rickety piers, and even the cabins of parked empty trucks. They describe the rapid move from repression to celebration, from the removal of shame to joy, the on-going search for ‘someone’, the freedom before AIDS, the friendships, and brotherhood. They take us on a journey through cruising and sex in public places, the drug scene, the birth of entertainment and dance clubs, and starry nights on Fire Island.
