Club Kids
This series is an homage to the club scene in New York City during the late 1980s and early 1990s. Club Kids--as they came to be known publicly--were characterized by their outrageous costumes and drug use. Led by the infamous Michael Alig and James St. James, they partied at several clubs in Manhattan owned by Peter Gatien as well as many illegal parties in various places such as a donut shop and the New York subway. Their presence in the city influenced night life for the entire era of the late 80s-early 90s and current night life now seen less publicly.
