There is no way now for you young'uns to understand the impact of that movie when it first got popular in the 70s. Straight people had no notion of "gay culture" at ALL. Suddenly there was this movie, and people were flocking to see it...with gays and sex and cross-dressing...suddenly we were on the radar like we had NEVER been before. They showed this movie everywhere, not just the big cities but places like Nebraska. And it was FUN, and straight people were having a good time...!
It was the first real step after Stonewall, in my opinion.[/quote]
Maybe not, but as i said earlier, i think my first real eye opener to the diversity of gay men was Rocky and Dr Frank-N-Furter.
Not only did it have that massive impact, but it still speaks volumes to current and future generations.
I felt today walking into town how empowering it would feel to have an ounce of Tim Curry's cocky sexual magnitism and hungering lust and smile with which he plays this part.
So i started to swagger, and imagine i was the sexiest fiend on the planet.....
IT FELT GREAT
