    Not seen it? For those of us who were out at the time, it was a revolutionary film, and contributed in a small way to the changing attitudes toward gays. Most americans in the 70's would rather have seen us all killed off; now that's the view of only a small percentage of the religious fundamentalists. As a film, it is mostly a series of interviews of various gay men (and a few lesbians?) on what their life and personal history was.
