As the Summer of 2012 comes to a close we remember all the good times we celebrated out at Fire Island with friends, family and lovers. The Pines and Cherry Grove areas most frequented by the LGBT community and are what we see here in this classic super 8 film by Nelson Sullivan originally from Kershaw, South Carolina and moved to New York City in the early 1970′s.
This video was taken in 1976 and shows the crowd really enjoying their day galavanting and showing off while taking in the Summer sun of Fire Island New York. Enjoy!
