With the United States gripped in the panic of the Cold War, President Dwight D. Eisenhower proclaims that homosexuals are “security risks” and orders the immediate firing of any government employee discovered to be gay or lesbian. It triggers a vicious witch hunt that ruins tens of thousands of lives and thrusts an unlikely hero into the forefront of what would become the modern LGBT rights movement. Based on the book, The Lavender Scare, by David K. Johnson.
