Fire Island’s Underground Drag History Documentary
We had a very good friend back in the late 90s named Rolf who was much, much older than we were. At the time, I think he and his partner of 30 years were in their 70s and both had retired to New Hope. We were in our 20s and he used to tell us stories about his drag days in the 1960s and 70s on Fire Island, and I never thought I’d be posting about them 20 years later. The stories were fascinating. Unfortunately, Rolf and his partner both passed away around 2002, but I’ll be looking for this documentary as soon as it’s released.
Fisher’s new film Cherry Grove Stories covers the history of the Fire Island neighborhood from its earliest days to the present, and plays at NewFest October 30. In it, he and his interview subjects recount their own memories, as well as the gay folklore imparted to them when they first began visiting the popular gay destination.

Married Pilot Busted For Hooking Up With Teen Boy on Grinder
Here’s another Grindr story. This time it’s about a 46 year old married male pilot and a 14 year old boy.
Morris connected with the 14-year-old boy called “Tom” on the hookup app back in December 2016. The two chatted for a while before Morris invited Tom over to his elderly parent’s house for a hookup in the wee hours of December 28.
You can read it all, here. The 46 year old was found guilty and now he’s registered as a sex offender.
