THE HOMOSEXUALS (Black/White, 1966, 43:43)
A CBS Reports presentation that underscores the difference between modern sexual morals and those of the dominant culture on the cusp of the counterculture better than perhaps any other period documentary. The esteemed Mike Wallace, for whom so much journalistic credit has been duly deserved over the years, in the course of attempting to give even-handed treatment to a subject very much taboo at the time, concludes that homosexuality is most probably a disease, mainly a male phenomenon, involves those incapable of maintaining deep and long-lasting relationships, and a number of other conclusions that modern reference to a significant number of long-running studies and in-depth analyses prove are unfounded. Gore Vidal makes an illuminating appearance and sounds a modern tone in the depths of this 50-year-old stopped time piece, but his insights and observations are cut into pieces and distributed amidst much broader coverage of insistent anti-homosexual psychologists on one hand, and on the other shadowy interviews with (again) male homosexuals reminiscent of the famous Monty Python sketch "The Mouse Problem". A homosexual media history landmark, produced in the same New York City that three years later saw the Stonewall riots that began the modern era of gay power activism.
BOYS BEWARE! (Black/White, Early 1960s, 10:12)
A rare how-not-to documentary on how-not-to be seduced by those dirty old men who pick up boys when they're hitch-hiking, take them fishing (for fish to begin with!) and further on try to get to as many bases as he can get until the boy gets wise and reports them to his parents and school. A seriously intended message film, done in a very campy manner. SMPTE time and category codes appear at bottom center of screen throughout.
Homosexuality is romantic attraction, sexual attraction, or sexual behavior between members of the same sex or gender. As a sexual orientation, homosexuality is "an enduring pattern of emotional, romantic, and/or sexual attractions" to people of the same sex. It "also refers to a person's sense of identity based on those attractions, related behaviors, and membership in a community of others who share those attractions." Along with bisexuality and heterosexuality, homosexuality is one of the three main categories of sexual orientation within the heterosexual-homosexual continuum. Scientists do not yet know the exact cause of sexual orientation, but they theorize that it is caused by a complex interplay of genetic, hormonal, and environmental influences and do not view it as a choice. Although no single theory on the cause of sexual orientation has yet gained widespread support, scientists favor biologically based theories. There is considerably more evidence supporting nonsocial, biological causes of sexual orientation than social ones, especially for males. There is no substantive evidence which suggests parenting or early childhood experiences play a role with regard to sexual orientation. While some people believe that homosexual activity is unnatural, scientific research shows that homosexuality is a normal and natural variation in human sexuality and is not in and of itself a source of negative psychological effects. There is insufficient evidence to support the use of psychological interventions to change sexual orientation. The most common adjectives for homosexual people are lesbian for females and gay for males, but the term gay also commonly refers to both homosexual females and males. The percentage of people who are gay or lesbian and the proportion of people who are in same-sex romantic relationships or have had same-sex sexual experiences are difficult for researchers to estimate reliably for a variety of reasons, including many gay and lesbian people not openly identifying as such due to prejudice or discrimination such as homophobia and heterosexism. Homosexual behavior has also been documented in many non-human animal species, though humans are one of only two species known to exhibit a homosexual orientation. Many gay and lesbian people are in committed same-sex relationships. These relationships are equivalent to heterosexual relationships in essential psychological respects. Homosexual relationships and acts have been admired, as well as condemned, throughout recorded history, depending on the form they took and the culture in which they occurred. Since the end of the 20th century, there has been a global movement towards freedom and equality for gay people, including the introduction of anti-bullying legislation to protect gay children at school, legislation ensuring non-discrimination, equal ability to serve in the military, equal access to health care, equal ability to adopt and parent, and the establishment of marriage equality.
