Narrated by Lily Tomlin and based on a 1981 book by Vito Russo, the documentary states from the outset that in 100 years of cinema history, homosexuality had rarely been acknowledged, and only then for laughs, pity or fear. The film includes interviews with Tom Hanks, Susan Sarandon, Whoopi Goldberg, Tony Curtis, Shirley MacLaine, Gore Vidal, Harvey Fierstein and others.
Price: Free; donations accepted.
