ANON POST: 90s Culture in Small Towns

I'm writing a story set in 1993 in a small town on the mid-East Coast (neither New England nor below South Carolina) USA. The main character is a 22 year old homosexual male with a partner. What I need help with is the general culture of the 1990s. I've googled "1990s LGBT culture" "1990 gay" "1990 culture" "1990 phrases..../politics/music/etc. but everything I've come up with is too vague to work with.

What I'm looking for is not only the treatment of homosexuals and other sub-cultures but things like legal system differences and skews, pop culture that may have been left by the wayside, the pedophilia scare, things that everyone "back then" knew that have been otherwise lost to try and make the time as accurate as I can. Links would be appreciated, as well as new search words.
