Watch: 50 Years of Gayness in 5 Minutes

The recent history of gayness as realized in a music video.


Editor Leo Herrera wanted to make a video where “every gay man can find something to identify with,” and he’s come up with something compelling and entertaining: “The Fortune Teller: 50 Yrs of F*ggotry” combines clips new and old to convey gayness over the past half-century. You’ve got some Harvey Milk in there, some antigay protesters, some Donna Summer, choice closeups from An American Family, and a little Lohanthony for good measure. It features an interesting and emotional arc, and  it manages to be pretty weird at times, too. Worth watching.

(And MAJOR props from including a clip from George Michael’s “Outside” video.)
