This title is the first to delve into the newly sexual liberal times of the early 1970s in post-Stonewall America. L.A. Plays Itself (Halstead) and Boys in the Sand (Poolemar) were both gay arthouse porn films that were released within months of each other at a theatre in New York in 1972. Cindy Patton discusses the historical context of these films and their legal and social ramifications, as well as other films that were produced during this crucial period in cinematic history.
