A short history of homosexuality on film

Be forewarned that this video was created in 2015.

However, it is a short, but excellent look at  past LGBTQ images from the motion picture industry. All of the ways Hollywood slurred, smeared, or dodged our community in the past and it is very educational. Not to mention fun to watch. I rather enjoyed the clips of movies like Dracula's Daughter, The Maltese Falcon, and Rope (Even though the clip from Rope is just a bit disconcerting)

Generally speaking, we simply must do better as a community of learning and remembering all aspects of our history. If we try to forget where we came from, we won't know where we should go.
