When Godfather Part 2 Was Makeshift Gay Erotica

Posted by on Thu, Jan 24, 2013 at 3:16 PM

When I was a young man growing up in early-'80s Texas, there was no Glee to provide healthy images of gay love. The closest thing I had was The Godfather Part 2, which I rented on VHS and which showed me my first guy-on-guy action:

Full disclosure: I never, like, committed the sin of Onan while watching this clip. I just dreamed of the day that someone as handsome as Al Pacino might grab and kiss me like that, then yell at me for breaking his heart. (I didn't trouble myself with the "kiss of death" thing, in the same way millions of American men don't trouble themselves with the "human trafficking" thing when they watch Teen Hitchhikers 19.)

Godfather Part 2 screens tonight at Central Cinema.

Teen Hitchhikers 19 was not the best one.

The kiss -- meh. I knew what it meant and it didn't turn me on.
My big problem with that sequence? We never got to see all of "Super Man".

I was just thinking about them in the fishing boat on the lake. That movie sticks with you a long time.
