Gripping and Thorough
16 February 2020 | by kbinder-1See all my reviews

Excellent tour through LGBTQ history and how television is a US cultural staple. Not only is this a celebration of the LGBTQ community, it explains the inequalities faced in the past, present, and the future. It is hosted by members of the LGBTQ community. Finally, it does not sweep anything under the rug, it fully explores the frightening and terrible events that have happened in the LGBTQ community since the invention of television.
