In December of 1974, gay men and women went to bed sick, and woke up the next day instantly cured.
25 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Things started changing dramatically after Stonewall. The American Psychiatric Association declared that being gay was not a sickness, the women's movement included a lot of lesbians who refused to back down, and gay men and women started protesting with a commemoration of the Stonewall riots.

The march continued as gays and lesbians had churches to attend, and politicians that were just like them. There was a backlash, of course, as people like Anita Bryant led a charge against gays and lesbians.

Homosexuality may no longer be a mental illness, but with Bryant, Ronald Reagan, and Jerry Falwell in the public limelight, it became a sin. This at the time that AIDS came on the scene.

A fascinating look at the ups and downs of the movement.
