Synopsis

Lily Tomlin narrates this award winning documentary that historically examines the way homosexuality has been dealt with over the years by mainstream Hollywood. Using film clips and interviews, the film illustrates tinseltown’s negative portrayal of gay stereotypes over the years, but also highlights how, over time, gay characters on screen have not only increased, but have come to be more representative of the gay community at large.
