Correct.

It wasn't 'young people' who elected as President a reality-show celebrity who pretended to hire and fire people pretending to compete for pretend jobs.

I know as kids, we were so "sheltered" and unknowing about gay-ness, that when we saw Liberace, we thought his look was just part of his act. Thought nothing of it. Kind of like Elton John in his early days. Lots of flamboyant in the entertainment biz.

Also,we can worship a wider variety of people today.

Who would have thought makeup artists and gamers would be worshiped like they are?

Yup. Totally defines my parents who are in their 60's. They're all about EVERYTHING political these days. It runs their lives. Seriously they have to be home at certain times to watch certain political shows. They're appalled that I have no idea what these shows are. Oh how i wish they'd talk about Kardashians or some YouTube star for 10 minutes a day!

I know it was hush hush in terms of regular people, but I remember gayness/flamboyance coming out quite a bit in the L.A./NY disco/Studio 54 era, orgies, Mick Jagger messing around with both men and women, etc. Seems when AIDS started hitting hard and the Reagans came to power, it ushered in a kind of new Puritan age where we went backwards in terms of sexual freedom and expression. Again though mainly applied to the famous, in everyday life even in the 70's no one could admit being gay.
