Well that's a nice historic video, but really doesn't have anything to do with Fire Island! Now so far as the island goes, I'm not gay and never have been but I know what they mean about being wistful for the "pre-AIDS days". You and your family could go to a group-grope and so long as contraception was in place for the females, everyone was good to go!And if you did catch something, whatever it was would be curable. Sigh. Yes I get wistful for those days as well!

Just a song about nostalgia for a freer, more bohemian past.
