STUDIO ONE FOREVER, the Documentary (Official Selection – 30th Annual Long Beach QFilms Festival - Long Beach, CA)
Screening Date: Sun, Sept 16th, 2023 Time: 9:30pm
ABOUT “STUDIO ONE FOREVER”: Studio One was more than just a disco; it was a mecca for gay men looking for identity in a world that saw them as outcasts. Its adjoining nightclub, The Backlot, merged the gay community with the Hollywood elite for the first time.
From 1974-1993 it became the center of nightlife in West Hollywood and the staging ground for the rise of the LGBT rights movement and the fight against the AIDS crisis.
