This documentary film by Michael Fisher recounts the unique character of Cherry Grove, a community on Fire Island, New York. Cherry Grove became a safe haven for gays during a time when two men holding hands in public was illegal. Fisher’s interviews with residents expose hidden stories and unknown facts that need to be told.
“Coming out here with a boyfriend was like going to a whore house with your wife."
“Cherry Grove was the best kept secret in the gay world for decades and decades."
"I always dreamed about cherry grove as a gay Shangri-La."
“We arrived at the dock and I looked down and I saw all these beautiful men in speedos and high heels and I thought I had died and gone to heaven."
