This week we cover the Pink Triangle and the Nazi persecution of homosexuals. Once a home of vibrant queer progressiveness, Germany dissolved into a dark place of bigotry, anti-semitism and extreme homophobia. We trace Hitler’s dissent of hate from his overthrow of power in 1933 to the end of the war.
For almost a full century Hollywood has battled its love/hate relationship with queer communities and Hollywood’s double standard. On the one hand they’d be lost without us; after all, we gave them Cary Grant, Katherine Hepburn, Marlene Dietrich and so many more.
