  • Nine gay men and women relate extraordinary stories of how they maintained a homosexual identity, although closeted, in the armed services during World War II. The film examines the U.S. military's history of blatant discrimination against gays and lesbians. Recent footage includes the 1993 Senate hearings on gays in the military, which brought us the questionable slogan and recruitment rule, "Don't ask, don't tell."
