WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Old Queen. The two most dreaded words in gay male culture! But was it always this way? "Not so," says Penny Arcade who, as a teenager, knocked around in gay bars in Hartford, Connecticut, Providence, Rhode Island, Boston, and Provincetown and finally at just past 16, washed up on the shores of Greenwich Village and the Lower East Side. She sought refuge and enlightenment in the gay bars and gay coffee shops from the early 1960's, the fomenting place of modern culture where the ridiculous met the sublime, where criminality forged with intellectual innovation, where low art met high art, and where the outsider status of homosexuality was a breeding ground for unique world views. This is Penny's story.
