I lived in Key West during the filming of this documentary. I got to know the Director, Talmage and the star of the movie, Gilbert Baker, creator of the original Gay Rainbow Flag.
Like many people, I went to Key West to 'escape' life. Having grew up in a right wing religious home I was extremely sheltered. When I came out in my early 30's I was, for all practical purposes, abandoned by friends, family and church.
When I came out I threw caution to the wind and got caught up in the whole Party Scene of Backstreets in Atlanta. Every night was a party. Every day was time to recover from the night before and get ready for that night.
I needed a vacation from this lifestyle and went to Key West with a friend. I never went back to Atlanta. I became part of the Key West scene. I found that I could be myself and no one cared what my sexual preference was.
I got to know Gilbert and Talmage and became part of the Key West Story. If you watch the movie you'll hear my story. I would love to hear your feedback.
