Coming Out Again

Some of My Best Friends Are…

December 21, 2017 @ 6:55 pm

Some of My Best Friends Are…

Dir. Mervyn Nelson, 1971, 100 mins, 35mm, USA

For a very special yuletide edition of Coming Out Again, we’re thrilled to present a 35mm print of this queer drama about the patrons and employees at a Greenwich Village gay bar on Christmas Eve in the early ’70s. With a cast including icons Candy Darling and Rue McClanahan, this is a crucial document of the lives and attitudes of NYC in the wake of Stonewall—and a great underseen holiday movie to boot.

Part of the Coming Out Again program–a new series in collaboration with Quad Cinema that surveys lesser-known landmarks of LGBTQ film history.
