I thought QAF was terrible. I've been out for over 30 years, and if I met any of these guys in a bar or elsewhere, I'd run the other way.

It certainly was an accurate representation of a lot of the club boys in the 70's and 80's.

Of the bunch, Emmett was the one with the best heart. I'd include him in a guest list (and hope he kept his paws off of the wait staff. lol)

When I saw the first Queer as Folk episode, and the Brian Kenny character was introduced, I remember thinking, "A homosexual narcissistic sociopath. Gee, where and how many times have I seen this characterization before? This is a step up?"

Peter Paige's character, Emmett, was adorable.
And I especially like Peter's deviated septum. A soccer accident perhaps?

Umm, I went to school in Pittsburgh, and I sure never saw any gay scene like that. I still want to know where, in this entire country, you can find dance clubs as "fabulous" as depicted in QAF. Certainly not in Pittsburgh, now, then, or ever! And not in Toronto, either.

I didn't see where QAF claimed to be a documentary, so why the criticisms. It was entertaining and that was its objective.

He was a deviated prevert.

And did ANY of you above bother to chase down the article? It has NOTHING WHATEVER to do with Peter paige. It's about a photo auction of collections held by Michael Epstein and Scott Schwimer including the complete collection of Mel Roberts photography, which is absolutely classic stuff.

Why the picture of Paige and the blurb about him under this headline? "Roboblogger" apparently has a touch of ADHD. The solution, Ritalin and Vodka.

San Francisco: The I-Beam. The Mind Shaft. Trocodero was the largest. The "Galleria Parties" were bigger. The C.O.Y.O.T.E (Hooker's) Balls were massive. Even the smaller clubs had much the same high energy flavor to them. T-top, plaid and levi crowd did the Castro clubs. Western drag were on Harrison. Leather were on Folsom. Glam, drag and boytoys were on Polk. The I-Beam was at the top of Haight near Golden Gate Park.

In L.A. the main one that comes to mind was "The Circus Maximus". Larger than a Costco, it also had a working comedy club.

I DJ'd for the I-Beam and Circus.

NONE of the dance clubs had "backrooms".

This vid was shot at The Mind Shaft with (ewww) straight dancers.

I checked it out, scratched my head and wondered where the Peter Paige connection was. However, there is an article about Peter Page on the site.

It was a gay soap opera. People always criticize the soaps.

I got that, Scotty, but the article was B O R I N G.

Ragging about QaF is much more fun.
