Come on and join Jack, a gay, New York boy/man teenager, in his journey. Join him in a world that doesn't exist anymore but the emotional journeys are still taken today. Welcome to the gay world of the 1940s and 1950s. It was a time before Stonewall was even heard of and when the worse disease you could catch was syphilis. It was a time when gay men identified each other by wearing loafers with tassels or a red tie and/or a pinky ring. The 'hot' spots for cruising were the 8th floor bathroom of the NBC building or the one across the street in the parking garage not to forget the popular ones on the IRT subway stops. There was the path behind the 42nd Street library separating it from Bryant Park. While there were the popular 'bird circuit' bars where men couldn't hold hands, let alone dance together at the same time, there were many dinners given in Manhattan's private homes, which were just excuses for orgies.
