Rental Only: Cherry Grove Stories


A New Documentary Traces the Evolution of the "Gay Shangri-La"
"Cherry Grove was the best kept secret in the gay world for decades and decades."
"I arrived at the dock I looked down and I saw all these beautiful men in Speedos and high heels and I thought I’d gone to heaven."
"There was a feeling that this was our place."

This documentary film by Michael Fisher recounts the unique character of Cherry Grove, a community on Fire Island, New York. Cherry Grove became a safe haven for gays during a time when two men holding hands in public was illegal. Fisher's interviews with residents expose hidden stories and unknown facts that need to be told.
