Backstreet – hopping round the clock in the 70s.

Backstreet was a dance club off Peachtree. It was a gay club but welcomed those exploring all  freedoms. Remember oral sex in Georgia, even between a married couple,  could land you in jail before 2003!    Backstreet and later  The Limelight both served as battlefields against Georgia’s antiquated laws on sex.

Backstreet was where the music and dancing literally never stopped. No windows or clocks. People sometimes went in and came out a day later.
