Transcript PAGE 22 NUNTIUS AUGUST 1970 ENTERTAINMENT HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DAVY HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DAVY is a realistic film treatment of the daily lives of the young homosexuals of today. Too many times the screen, theatre, or literature has depicted the gay life in stereotyped concepts. Happy Birthday, Davy is a frank and revealing slice of life of the way today's youth face homosexuality, it's conflicts and struggles caused by it. This film is an insight to these lonely young men .... the men that are often unable to find that other human being to relate with .... to grow .... to love with. Unable sometimes to find that missing half because they are forced into the shadows of secretive living. This screenplay explores this man's plight and problems .... this man's secret need .... this man's hidden and often distorted life.

Davy has stumbled into the bar by fate or mistake. Having just turned twenty-one, Davy has set out to buy his first birthday drink. Unknowingly he has stumbled into an apparent den of leather sadists, drag queens, and assorted so called social perverts. Davy realizes his mistake when he is put upon by the frilly bartender named Butch. Comically portrayed by Carl Williams. Immediately Davy typifies Butch as what a homosexual is supposed to be. Bob, observing the interchange between the two, introduces himself. Davy is put at ease thinking because of Bob's clean cut image that he too has stumbled into the bar by mistake. Bob being adjusted in his homosexuality realizes Davy's dilemna and confusion as to what kind of place and personage that he has stumbled upon. Bob tries to explain the 'straight' side of being a homosexual .... he tells the young boy to open his eyes and see the YOU ARE INVITED every WEDNESDAY Steak Nite 6-10 FREE Bar-B-Cue 7 till OPEN DAILY 4 till 2am Saturday, Sundays & Holidays Ipm to 2am
