            9-10pm. KCTS-TV. In 1953, President Eisenhower declared Gay men and Lesbians to be a threat to national security and therefore unfit for government service.

Over the next four decades, tens of thousands of government workers lost their jobs and careers solely over their sexual orientation. But this injustice had an unintended effect: it helped ignite the LGBT rights movement. This new documentary is narrated by Glenn Close and Frank Kameny (the man who dared to fight back).
