Did You Know?


The scene where Blanca gets kicked out of the bar was filmed at a real bar in NYC called Julius, one of the oldest gay bars in NYC. See more »


Angel: What's your deal here? Usually, the ones like you are either gay won't admit it or straight but too afraid to ask their wife to stick a finger up their behind.
Stan Bowes: [CHUCKLES] Jesus. I'm neither of those things. I'm not gay. I don't understand. You hadn't touched me. Not a blow job in the car or nothing. But you want to possess me. Why? What are you?

It is clear how the gay club scene was divided back in the 1980s.

There were gay clubs for young white people who would not want young black people and certainly did not one transvestites.

Blanca makes a stand and ends up being arrested. It is Elektra who comes to her assistance.

The more intriguing story is that of Stan and Angel. Stan married with children and a job in Wall Street. He just cannot get Angel out of his head and he gets a flat for her. This is a story I want to see how it turns out.

The problem for me is that the relationship between the young people such as Damon even in an era of AIDS is just not that interesting. Also the various challenges at the nightclub between the feuding houses gets boring very quickly.
