Coming Out Under Fire

1994 NR

In this documentary that examines the U.S. military's history of discrimination against gays and lesbians, gay men and women relate stories of how they maintained a homosexual identity, although closeted, in the armed forces during World War II. Footage includes the 1993 Senate hearings on gays in the military, which coined the slogan and recruitment rule, "Don't ask, don't tell." Arthur Dong directs.
