Merciless Diaries. The Ĺ80s: Queer. Nelson Sullivan

Part two of the adventures of our favourite guide to 1980s downtown New York. In this session, we follow Nelson to such mythical places as the Chelsea Hotel, where we meet Christina, a strange transvestite of German origin, take part in a loud and lively bus trip to Washington, where a memorable party is planned, and walk by his side, with a friend and his faithful dog, Blackie, in what were to be the final hours of Sullivan’s life.
