Their combined stories offer insights into the modern LGBTQ movement and how the process of “coming out” has changed from the McCarthy era through civil rights, post-Stonewall and during the age of AIDS. And despite the politics and social climate of the times, the process of coming out has been oddly the same for each generation.
