Yet Russo also recognised it as a landmark film, 'part catharsis part catalyst', which opened the way for less stereotyped portrayals of homosexuality. The presentation of some attractive and functional gay men - notably the couple Hank and Larry - implicitly challenged the stereotype. The self hatred that marked a generation or more of gays is explored through the character of Michael
