Color video of gay men and women clubbing in the 1950s! Also possibly some trans people — there are folks in drag in both settings, at least.

From a 1963 documentary, thus the hilariously sexist narration. It’s well worth ignoring that part for the sake of the footage. Look at all these fabulous people who had the guts to let themselves be filmed in this setting.

(And wow, the commenters are right, the guy at 1:45 really does look like Steve Carell.)
