Peter Hinwood (The Rocky Horror Picture Show)

In just seven days Dr. Frank N. Furter made him a man. And Flash Gordon was there in silver underwear. But Rocky’s underwear was pure gold! It’s Peter Hinwood as the titular golden hunk of a man Rocky — from The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

I discovered this movie in high school just a few weeks ahead of its official home video release. (A kid from drama club had a bootleg copy.) People will totally take this for granted today, but back then to see a movie that gave men permission to lust after the bodies of other men was a big fucking deal. Released in 1975, this movie was way ahead of its time, which explains its enduring appeal. Hell, Rocky’s big musical introduction even ends with a same sex wedding march.
