Summer seems far away, but it’ll be here and where you are too, soon enough and Fire Island has been a gay mecca for decades. The late Nelson Sullivan was enrolled in film school when he shot this Super 8 film on Fire Island, the New York getaway spot. Nelson and his partner owned a salon on the island called David/Nelson.
(Btw, the soundtrack is by the 80s group, Fabulous Pop Tarts, otherwise known as Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato, head honchos at World of Wonder.)
NOTE: Sadly, as I was preparing to post this, I got word last night of a fire on the island in the sister community of Cherry Grove from Daniel Nardicio who’s hosted parties at the Ice Palace for years, along with his famous Icons Series, as well. Very sorry to hear this news. The unbelievable thing is the Pop Tarts track was recorded at the Ice Palace.
