10/11/17. Considering that this documentary was made close to 40 years ago (1978), in retrospect, can be considered quite radical for the time. The film-maker offered people participating and viewing the gay parades of 1977 the opportunity to voice their feelings and thoughts about being gay, homosexuality, gender roles, coming out, being in the closet, etc. It's worth keeping in mind that this was made BEFORE AIDS made its debut in 1982, and then everything changed. So, in a way, the late '70s was a period of innocence for those who were coming into their own and being able to share their lives in a very open and honest way. This is worth watching for its historical value in documenting a segment of society that continues to struggle for rights denied them because of their sexuality.
