Cruising at the Jaycee


jinks and his friends used to go to the Jaycee Cinema. “It played ‘funnies, cartoons and news reels’.  It was used by a large part of the gay community at that time and people would make ‘grand entrances’”.

One particular patron, known as ‘The Duchess’ was a man called John who was about five foot tall. “He used to mince his way all the way down the aisle, to the front of the cinema and look around to see who was in and what was available”.

After a while the cinema realised what the place was being used for; however three quarters of their customers were gay men.
