Viktor Devonne asked some of his favorite nightlife personalities for some of their formative queer movies and they narrowed them to 3 each. Each segment features discussion on that film from the entertainer, in addition to further notes from those who were there at the time of the recording session. These are by no means meant to be a comprehensive expose on each film, but features notable memories, scenes, and analysis on them.
Part 5 (video version) features the first selection from Oliver Swisskey who chose To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar (1995) directed by Beeban Kidron and starring Patrick Swayze, Wesley Snipes, John Leguizamo, Stockard Channing, and Chris Penn.
This video version segment is presented as a standalone piece, and may also be enjoyed in audio form as part of the overall “part 1” which contains the 1st film selection of all of the participants including Miss Violet Deville, Noctua, Esmerelda May, Lewd Alfred Douglas, Mr. Valdez, Mimi Hurricane, Lucky Charming, and Viktor Devonne. For video ease, each film has been highlighted as a standalone video track, available freely to watchers.
