I n , when Calvin Burdine was awaiting sentencing for allegedly stabbing his gay lover to death, the prosecuting attorney encouraged the jury in his closing remarks to award Burdine the death penalty, rather than life in prison, on the grounds that sending a gay man to prison was akin to sending a kid to a candy store. After 17 minutes of deliberation, the jury obliged and sentenced Burdine to die. His death sentence was later overturned mostly because Burdine's public defender had slept through much of his trial , but the homophobic thinking — that prison is some kind of paradise for gay men — lingers on.

The police officer who arrested Sen. Larry Craig, R-Idaho, in a men's restroom at the Minneapolis airport for allegedly looking to engage in gay sex wrote in his June report that he "recognized a signal used by persons wishing to engage in lewd conduct.

A ll Lucio Castro had in mind when he sat down to write a screenplay was an elegiac title — End of the Century — and a starting point: a figure arrives in a new city, in this case Barcelona. The dominant mood, however, is elliptical and disorienting: a kind of Last Shag at Marienbad. He is speaking from the terrace of his house in New York City, fighting to make himself heard over shrieking sirens. The setting seems appropriate given several crucial scenes in the movie take place on terraces or balconies. It is from here that the action flashes back to the same city two decades earlier, when the lives of both men, then in their 20s, were markedly different.
