Every member of the LGBT community should watch this...especiallly the youngsters.
This is not ancient history...this is yesterday. These views are still held and promoted in too many countries and communities throughout the world.
This is how we were viewed, how we were treated, how we suffered...at the hands of bogus 'experts' - this fiction is nothing but horrific, dangerous.
Every 'expert' who promulgated these views should be held to account...discredited and shamed...vilified.
And still...these 'views' are being preached to blinkered, blindly-led communities...by that good ole hate-fuelled religion...
Gay christians?!?...think about it!
'The Homosexuals' is a 1967 episode of the documentary television series CBS Reports. The hour-long broadcast featured a discussion of a number of topics related to homosexuality and homosexuals. Mike Wallace anchored the episode, which aired on March 7, 1967. Although this was the first network documentary dealing with the topic of homosexuality, it was not the first televised in the United States. That was The Rejected, produced and aired in 1961 on KQED, a public television station out of San Francisco.
Three years in the making, 'The Homosexuals' went through two producers and multiple revisions. The episode included interviews with several gay men, psychiatrists, legal experts and cultural critics, interspersed with footage of a gay bar and a police sex sting. 'The Homosexuals' garnered mixed critical response. The network received praise from some quarters and criticism from others for even airing the program.
