Sex, drugs and rock and roll. In the post hippie era, San Francisco emerged as a playground unlike any other place in the country for the adventurous and sexually liberated—gay, straight, and anywhere in between—before the dawn of herpes, HIV, and the emergence of the “religious right.”
In the late 1970s, it was estimated at one point a thousand men were arriving in San Francisco each week. This story follows the adventures and misadventures of three guys from the conservative South who were among those thousands who flocked to the City by the Bay, leaving everything behind, to start a new life.
Their story is packed with humor, but also poignancy, as they explore the city and themselves and their sexuality in their new environment. But most of all, it’s an entertaining, fun read. Join them on their adventure.
Andy is gay, but can he fit into the city’s more open and sometimes flamboyant gay scene? Will he ever find the life partner he so desperately wants?
Jon is a latent hippie, but can he be happy staying stoned and living in a shanty at the beach? Maybe not, after his old girlfriend from back East shows up.
Chris is searching for his sexual identity and a sense of belonging as he explores the city’s hot singles spots—gay and straight—and its sex clubs. What will he discover about himself?
A host of colorful supporting characters, men and women, straight and gay, many of whom live in the same apartment building, round out the cast.
