406: Gay Bar 7 - Some of My best Friends Are...

I haven’t seen it, few people have, but if I am waffling on about gay bars then I really can’t omit the 1971 film “Some of My Best Friends Are…”. A sort of counterpoint to “The Boys in the Band”, it is about all the different types of patrons who pass through a New York gay bar "The Blue Jay" one Christmas night.

Some more of the history of the film, posters and various publicity materials are here:
