If you can watch without prejudice, some of the gay documentaries out there are quite good. "Before Stonewall", "After Stonewall", "We Were Here", "How to Survive a Plague" and then if you want, you can watch the film version of the book "And the Band Played On". Everybody is in that one. Phil Collins plays a sleazy gay sauna owner. Not making that one up.. I'm not gay but most of these you'll be crying at some parts, especially if "And the Band Played On" is the one with the Elton John song playing at the end: "The Last Song".
