    Never knew that South America was a destination for gay guys. With beautiful beaches ,skimpy swimwear, and Carnivals I guess it makes sense.

    Tom: Yeah, yeah, yeah making fun of previous use of the word “gay” as in this movie review for 1945’s “Anchors Away” as a “Gay Musical Film, With Gene Kelly, Frank Sinatra and Miss Grayson”. Oh I know, how about the 1949 “On The Town”? That had a trailer that ended with the promise “Twice As Gay As Anchors Aweigh”.

    What a knee slapper.

    Twenty years later most of those countries were despotic dictatorships where people lived in fear and terror.

    Actually South America’s become quite progressive on gay rights. See…

    Amazing how the language has changed in 50 years, unless they’re talking about Barrio Norte and Rua Farme de Amoedo. (I love wikipedia!)
