Night of films to commemorate Stonewall

11 posts in this topic

Gays & lesbians in America still face gender, race, class, and generational obstacles to becoming a cohesive community. Plus many are not open about their orientation or HIV status without fear. 50 Years after Stonewall.

On Friday the 28th of June, TCM will be airing these films:

"Some of My Best Friends Are" with Carlton Carpenter is a must-see.

I've never seen it. Glad TCM's put it on the schedule.

It has a very interesting cast, including Rue McClanahan in her glory days.

I'm assuming it was filmed in New York, since Rue McClanahan was doing a soap opera at the time on the east coast. And it looks like Fannie Flagg is also in it. Plus a very young Gil Gerard and Gary Sandy (both of them were on NY-based soaps in the early 70s).

So hot, you'll have a great time.

Hot for the early 70s, right? Gotta love those hairstyles!

I wish they would have included "Word is Out" (1977) a wonderful documentary

Late in life, Carlton Carpenter wrote a series of gay mysteries.

And, yet, I am unable to track them down.

Does anyone have any of them?
