This documentary takes a deep look into how the LGBT community was treated in the movie industry and how they were presented to viewing audience. You get to hear the stories from some of the people that lived it, and you learn how they handled the situation.

This documentary shows the side of Hollywood that was hidden in some ways and obvious in other way. The speakers are great, top notch. The footage starts with a clip that Thomas Edison filmed to more modern day. This is something to see if you are a movie lover. This movie will open your eyes to some movies you may have missed. Enjoy.
