The gay community’s claim that the stereotypes are wrong and that lesbians come in all types has rarely found more eloquent proof than Ruthie and Connie of Deborah Dickson’s video documentary. These two Brooklyn Jewish housewives, realizing they were lesbians in love with each other after more than a decade of friendship, eventually divorced their husbands and moved in together in 1974. Ruthie also successfully sued her employer to obtain domestic-partner benefits. Hearing the duo tell their stories with passion and verve in their New York Jewish accents is alone worth the price of admission; most touching is hearing Ruthie, who gave Connie her first orgasm, speak with shame of the cute plaques that identify two bedrooms in an attempt to conceal the relationship from their children: “They represent the closet.” 55 min.
