A film by JOSH HOWARD. Based on the book by DAVID
K. JOHNSON. THE LAVENDER SCARE is a documentary film
about the U.S. government's relentless campaign in
the 1950s and '60s to hunt down and fire every government
employee suspected of being gay or lesbian.
In what became the longest and most intense witch
hunt in American history, thousands of gay men and
women lost their jobs. Some lost their lives. Until
finally, a courageous few fought back.
