Keep meaning to share this. I’ve been doing some research for a project, looking for and at photos of NYC’s meatpacking district before it was gentrified.  Specifically from the 80’s and early 90’s when there was still meatpacking and trannies.  When Florent was the only restaurant we went to, and it was open 24 hours a day.  When Larry, and Lahoma lived on the corner of little W. 12th and Gansevoort…  and then I found The 5 Ninth Avenue Project, hours and hours of video of then and there.  Young everyone doing the most amazing performances and looking amazing whilst doing so.

If you were there, be prepared to remember all the things you forgot by the next morning, and if you weren’t, enjoy just a taste of the wonderfully creative, eclectic time and place that was NY’s gay club scene of the 80’s.
