The true story behind one of the most impactful pieces of writing ever published in the fight for LGBTQ+ equality.
September 1970. A year after the Stonewall Riots, Harper's Magazine publishes the now notorious article "Homo/hetero: the struggle for sexual identity". Acclaimed journalist and former editor of Harper’s Magazine Merle Miller reads the article from his home in upstate New York and decides to take a stand.
September 1971. Merle sits at his desk and begins to write. Part man, part memory, he invites the audience to join him on an incredible journey of his life from provincial Iowa to the pages of the New York Times.
