Plot & Details

Twenty-six homosexual men and lesbian women give in-depth interviews to the filmmakers, revealing aspects about gay life which shatter widespread stereotypes. This 1977 documentary also examines the issues of racial minorities within the gay community. Among those interviewed are several factory workers, a truck driver, and a veterinarian. Many of the interviewees had previously been married with children, often losing visiting rights when their homosexuality was revealed. Several had been in the military. One highlight of the film is the interview with a New-Mexican lesbian couple who live cheerfully in extremely primitive conditions.
