Post-show: Producer/director JOSH HOWARD joins us in person for a post-show Q&A, followed by a wine and dessert reception in the Film Center lobby sponsored exclusively by Tilton Rental.

With the United States gripped in the panic of the Cold War, President Dwight D. Eisenhower deems homosexuals to be “security risks” and orders the immediate firing of any government employee discovered to be gay or lesbian. It triggers a vicious witch hunt that lasts for forty years and ruins thousands of lives, while thrusting an unlikely hero into the forefront of what would become the modern LGBT rights movement.

"Filmmaker JOSH HOWARD’S inspiring new documentary that he co-directed with JILL LANDES plays a crucial role in bringing to our attention a difficult period in LGBT history that we really should all know about."--Roger Walker-Dack, queerguru.com
