Gay Sex in the '70s

2005 NR

This fascinating documentary tells the story of a pivotal era in gay history -- the 12 years between the landmark incident at Stonewall in 1969 and the first reported cases of AIDS in 1981, which marked a period of unparalleled growth for America's gay community, ushering in a new era of sexual frankness. This film tells the story through colorful scenes from 1970s erotic life, and candid interviews with the gay New Yorkers who experienced it.
