“Limbo Rock,” is a story of a queer pre-teen in the 1960s (that would be me.) At school dances in 6th, 7th and 8th grade, I quickly learn not to ask girls to dance, but I don’t yet understand my own sexuality in that era of profound homophobia. Thank goodness the Women’s and Gay Liberation Movements of the 1970s are only a decade away, and those movements will be lifesaving for me. . . but that’s another story.
Lots of 60s dance music in this 14 minutes: The Twist, The Limbo, The Swim, The Jerk…enjoy!
