I watched this movie with my husband, and neither one of us could speak. We were so shocked and so revolted by the vicious, self-righteous, disgusting prejudice against gays that so many people felt comfortable expressing. I agree with another reviewer -- the Cantor Fitzgerald story was the worst. Two bosses, Bill Rice and Sean Blakesly, abused a gay worker in the most horrifying ways. They made a video in which they wore paper bags over their heads decorated with a black man's face, and an Asian man's face -- why didn't they just wear Klan hoods and admit what they really are? -- and proceeded to ridicule the gay employee. They then STEAL HIS CAR and paint it over with horrifying anti-gay slogans. This movie was shown at a training session and this poor man had to sit there with others and watch it! This is just one of many horrifying things they did. These people are the lowest of the low. They were WORSE than the worst juvenile I have ever encountered. I was stunned. I couldn't believe educated people were acting like this. The rage I felt towards those men, and the sympathy I felt for their victim, is not to be described. The other stories are horrible, also. One guy was beaten up for the crime of being gay. Another woman lost her job, and the people of her "community" were taped saying things like gay people shouldn't be able to work in a restaurant. Huh? Why does this happen? I recommend this movie highly AND WISH IT WERE ON DVD!! THIS WOULD BE SUCH A GREAT TEACHING TOOL! HINT, HINT! I think people should see this movie just to see how ugly and harmful and DISGUSTING prejudice is.
