The Homosexuals
9 May 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This documentary, made in black and white, was considered controversial at the time. Today it might be thought of as rather tame, but what it does do is give an insight into the way times and social mores have changed with particular reference to male homosexuality in America, and sadly throughout most of the Western world.

Among those Mike Wallace talks to is Gore Vidal, whose views on the subject were almost certainly shaped by his own sexuality. What is most noticeable about this programme is the attitude of mainstream homosexuals who did not insist they were "gay" - a euphemism that was seldom used then even though it had been around since the 1930s. They did not want to "come out" or to force acceptance of their lifestyle on the public. They even supported laws which criminalised open displays of homosexuality; all they wanted was the right to practise their form of sex in the privacy of their own homes. That sounds totally reasonable today, but alas times really have changed.
