Meet The Glamcocks
The Glamcocks are one of the high level gay camps situated in the heart of the gayborhood at Burning Man. I have no documentation to support this, but they are the only camp I know of at Burning Man that includes some physical requirements as well as all the other good community requirements to join. It can't be a coincidence that they all have extremely low body fat. I'm sure there isn't a waist line bigger than 30 inches in that camp.
So they made an hour long video called Meet The Glamcocks which starts out all Glamcocky, but gradually broadens out and addresses Burning Man more generally. Of course, if you've never been to Burning Man you may not be able to identify what's specifically Glamcock and what's generally Burning Man.
I don't want to upset all the fans of Spark, but this Glamcock video might be a better documentary of what it's really like to be at Burning Man. Yes, there's a history to Burning Man and there's office politics in San Francisco year 'round. But when you're on the playa, you don't see any of that. All you see is your little corner of the flood of light, sounds and smells. I recommend this for anyone who is thinking of someday making that journey to a better place.
