"Gay Rights, Special Rights"

This is the first part of "Gay Rights, Special Rights: Inside the Homosexual Agenda," which was produced in 1993 by Jeremiah Films.  Consider its depiction of gays and lesbians, its effort to contrast the black civil rights movement with the gay rights movement, and its intended audience.

  1. So, this is one of the reasons why so many gay activists have gone with the "we were born this way" narrative. It kinda makes it easier to reach out to groups like these.
    Also, way to paint gay people as all upper class. Homelessness is a problem in the community--1 in every 6 homeless teens is queer.
    And note the manipulative footage. The only black gay person I could easily discern was in the periphery of the screen, not the center of screen. So they paint it as a white movement.
    And then they paint gays as hypersexual and use a ton of excessive make-out shots to gross out the audience, who probably already has conservative sensibilities.
