Synopsis

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