Hope Along the Wind: The Life of Harry Hay
Eric Slade 2001 57 min. USA
In the late 1940s — a time of violence and oppression against gays and lesbians — activist and labor organizer Harry Hay began organizing one of the country’s first homosexual rights organizations, the Mattachine Society. Through interviews, archival images, and visually stylized dramatizations, Hope Along the Wind provides an engaging profile of one of the first activists to identify LGBT people as an oppressed minority and insist they deserve equality.
