WatchThe Lavender Scare (Not Rated, 2017, 77min). Upon registration you will immediately receive an automated email with 2 links: the Zoom link for the virtual film discussion on the 17th and a link granting access to watch The Lavender Scare. Narrated by Glenn Close, this award-winning documentary is the first film to tell the little-known story of an unrelenting campaign by the federal government to identify and fire all employees suspected of being homosexual. This gripping work details the untold story of a brutal witch hunt, and the courageous few who fought back.
Join us on Thursday, September 17th at 7pm for a virtual Zoom discussion of the documentary moderated by Gary Nimax, Chair of UVA's LGBT Committee for faculty and staff. This virtual program can be accessed both by Zoom online and by a toll-free phone number.
