Dr. Frank-N-Furter flag from the Rocky Horror Picture Show
Flag of Dr. Frank-N-Furter from the Rocky Horror Picture Show. It is shown in the beginning of the film atop the castle. This film is a ground breaking cult classic. It addresses the issues of gender identity though a semi-romantic science fiction rock and roll musical. The film even warns the audience that they will be entering dangerous territory.
Here two regular conservative American Pie folk enter the mansion of an alien culture. At least in the USA, in the 1970s the group ego identity of that a man should be and what a woman should be were challenged. However by the 1980s a conservative and traditional role of male and female would ring proudly in the mass media.
