I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

SYNOPSIS:




Gay Sex in
the 70s is a 2005 American documentary film about gay sexual culture
in New York City in the 1970s. It illustrates the twelve
years of sexual freedom bookended by the Stonewall riots of
1969 (which largely removed the threat of police repression) and the
recognition of AIDS in
1981 (the dawning of the consequences of unprotected sex with multiple
partners). The film uses archival footage and interviews to describe the world
of gay anonymous and casual sex in
the settings of discotheques,bathhousesbars and dark roomsFire Island and more.


The film was directed by Joseph Lovett and features interviews
with Larry KramerTom BianchiBarton Lidice BeneŇ°Rodger McFarlane,
and many others.


The film was awarded the GayVN Award for Best
Alternative Release of 2006.



REVIEW:




It was almost deja vu for me,
watching what lifestyle was like in those heady days of Gay sex in the 70's despite the fact that was in 1978. I can't explain it, but there is something so familiar about seeing what life was like for gay people back then.



This films actually shows you this was REALLY happening, not only in NYC but around the
world! This
is a very good archive of a time in history and valuable in today's world.




It was fun to see
all the pretty young things in their heyday who are all past middle age, yet
knowing that they'd come a long way to get here. 
I enjoyed it and
highly recommend it to anyone who was/n't around at the time.


Gay Sex in the 70s is a
stunning visual document of New York. Lovett expertly mixes archival footage and
interviews with those who lived through the times, including author/activist
Larry Kramer, photographer Tom Bianchi, and the former business manager of the
St. Marks Baths. From Greenwich Village to the Fire Island Pines, Gay Sex in
the 70s celebrates a city and an era with the unbridled joy that characterized
the decade, while at the same time offering a sobering reminder of the AIDS
crisis that followed

Some nights, I stay up cashing in my bad luck



Some nights, I call it a draw




Some nights, I wish that my lips could build a castle



Some nights, I wish they'd just fall off






But I still wake up, I still see your ghost




Oh Lord, I'm still not sure what I stand for oh



What do I stand for? What do I stand for?


Most nights, I don't know anymore...


Oh woah, oh woah, oh woah oh oh


Oh woah, oh woah, oh woah oh oh






This is it, boys, this is war - what are we waiting for?




Why don't we break the rules already?



I was never one to believe the hype - save that for the black and white


I try twice as hard and I'm half as liked, but here they come again to jack my style






And that's alright; I found a martyr in my bed tonight




She stops my bones from wondering just who I am, who I am, who I am



Oh, who am I? Oh, who am I? mmm... mmm...






Well, Some nights, I wish that this all would end




Cause I could use some friends for a change



And some nights, I'm scared you'll forget me again


Some nights, I always win, I always win...






But I still wake up, I still see your ghost




Oh Lord, I'm still not sure what I stand for, oh



What do I stand for? What do I stand for?


Most nights, I don't know... (come on)






So this is it? I sold my soul for this?




Washed my hands of that for this?



I miss my mom and dad for this?






No. When I see stars, when I see stars, that's all they are




When I hear songs, they sound like a swan, so come on



Oh, come on. Oh, come on, OH COME ON!






That is it, guys, that is all - five minutes in and I'm bored again




Ten years of this, I'm not sure if anybody understands



This is not one for the folks at home; I'm sorry to leave, mom, I had to go


Who the fuck wants to die alone all dried up in the desert sun?






My heart is breaking for my sister and the con that she called "love"




But when I look into my nephew's eyes...



Man, you wouldn't believe the most amazing things that can come from...


Some terrible nights...ahhh...






Oh woah, oh woah, oh woah, oh oh




Oh woah, oh woah, oh woah, oh oh







The other night, you wouldn't believe the dream I just had about you and me




I called you up, but we'd both agree



It's for the best you didn't listen


It's for the best we get our distance... oh...


It's for the best you didn't listen


It's for the best we get our distance... oh...
