The Homosexuals




This program ran on CBS in 1967. I cannot imagine living in this kind of reality. I did not know if I needed to cry, projectile vomit or go break something with my bare hands. Take some time to watch this if you want a glimpse of when our elders came from and what they overcame to bring us even the parts of liberty and peace we enjoy now.

  1. I was six years old when this show aired, and that was pretty much the attitude I grew up experiencing. That (plus religious taboos) is why it took me decades to dump the interiorized homophobia that shadowed me.

    You are fortunate, dear Daemon, to know a much different era -- and I also count myself fortunate to live in this new day. :)
