366 Days at the Drive-In: Day 76


The Date: December 15

The Movie: Flaming Creatures (1963)

What Is It?: Jack Smith’s celebration of polymorphous perversity and monsters is a landmark product of NY’s underground movie scene and gay cinema. Think of it as an avant-garde Rocky Horror Picture Show that dares to go places Rocky never did. Flaming Creatures earns extra points for pissing off Strom Thurmond.

Why Today?: On this day in 1973, the American Psychiatric Association removes homosexuality from its list of psychiatric disorders.
