"The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia"


I watched this when it first aired in 1987 - - deep in the closet, scared of AIDS & death before I had even had sex.

This scene gave me a little hope that people might not hate me for who I was.

And that friends & loved ones would stand with me against the hate & homophobia.

Rest in peace, Ms. Carter.

I spoke to her once during the intermission of a show in LA. She was standing alone but couldn't have been more gracious and friendly. Truly a class act. She will be missed.
