Did anyone ever see the movie Cruising with Al Pacino? Apparently this movie was quite controversial when it came out — according to the Back in the Gays website, some of the interior shots were made to look like the legendary Mineshaft sex club.
Anyway, a local friend of mine told me this true story of his PARENTS taking him and his brother (both of whom turned out to be gay) to see Cruising when they were kids:
My father, with the misguided idea that the movie was about “cars cruising” took my gay brother, my mom and me to see this movie. My brother and I had boners the entire film, and my parents sat there in utter shock. A great childhood memory!
