Peter Berlin

A Chronicle article on Peter Berlin, subject of the new film That Man:

"The downside of mainstream acceptance of gays is that gays themselves become more mainstream, more conformist," John explains later. "San Francisco once had a gay underground full of brilliant eccentrics and artists like Peter Berlin. I would love it if kids initially attracted by the sex and fashion angles of the documentary would clue into Peter's iconoclasm and his fearless individuality."

The film looks like an interesting study of someone who refined the need to be admired by others through art into a science.
