CBS Reports: "The Homosexuals"

(h/t) Citizen Crain:

This video of Mike Wallace's 1967 special report for CBS News provides a fascinating look at how the media treated LGBT issues in pre-Stonewall America. Included in this special are viewpoints from anti-gay crusader and "reparative therapy" advocate Charles Socarides; and Mattachine Society member Warren Adkins (aka Jack Nichols).

The video is a must watch for anyone interested in the portrayal of LGBT people in the media and the history of the gay rights movement.
