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). 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 through cruising and sex in public places, the drug scene,
the bars and the baths, the birth of entertainment and dance clubs, and
starry nights on Fire Island. Photographs, home movies, newsreels, and
film clips illustrate the story.
A few contemporary "what did the 70's mean?" man-in-the-street takes end the documentary.
