From closet to community

How OKC’s gay and lesbian community emerged.


News

James Cooper

Editor’s note: It’s been 30 years since the first AIDS case was reported in the United States. This is the first of a two-part history of the disease’s devastation in Oklahoma City, and the story of how a community emerged to fight back and save itself. Much of the reporting is based on Aaron L. Bachhofer’s 2006 dissertation, “The Emergence and Evolution of the Gay and Bisexual Male Subculture in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, 1889- 2005,” and interviews conducted this summer.

The Killer Nun

Mercy me!


Horror

Rod Lott
Forgive and forget — the one ability that Sister Gertrude (La Dolce Vita star Anita Ekberg) sorely lacks, in 1979's The Killer Nun, one of the more popular entries in the whacked-out subgenre known as “nunsploitation.” However, the Italian project may be the only one based on a true story.

Twins of Evil

Double, double, toil and trouble ...


Horror

Rod Lott
For me, the more desperate Hammer Film Productions got as audiences’ tastes changed in the early 1970s, the more fun their flicks became. That’s why 1971’s Twins of Evil is now one of my favorites from the legendary British studio, after digging into its Blu-ray debut from Synapse Films.

Peter Gabriel: Secret World Live

Grab your things / I’ve come to take you home.


Documentary

Rod Lott
I'd say Peter Gabriel has aged wonderfully, judging from the concert film Secret World, but the performance is nearly two decades old, from 1993. Although far removed from his heyday as an MTV idol — the venue looks as if its audience were lifted from a BMW dealership super-sale — he still sounded great.
