So I'm all alone at home....as usual lately....feeling utterly alone and of course sorry for myself. Then 'it' happens. I run across a box of VHS tapes! Tapes I had recorded in the early 90s including Martha Stewarts original show on PBS, a few home movies, bachelor parties, movies like Flatline and amazingly......"Armistad Maupin's Tales From the City!!" Beyond Exciting! So I dug out the old VCR that hasn't been used in 15 years or more and everything works!
I recorded TFTC when it aired on PBS (around 93 I think), and omg...I loved this series!
Remember the early 90s were way more homophobic than today and the airing of this was a BIG deal. It was also pre internet so seeing 'gay' ANYTHING on TV was RARE!
Maryanne SO sweet. MONA!!! God I wanted her for a friend. Billy Campbell, PARKER POSEY, Thomas Gibson, !
I have to say.....I am in heaven!
