Know Your LGBT History - The Celluloid Closet

Via my Know Your LGBT History posts, I've tried to impart a little history regarding lgbt images in movies and television. I was guided by an excellent book The Celluloid Closet: Homosexuality in the Movies by the late author Vito Russo.

I would remiss if I didn't mention the documentary film by the same name based on Russo's book. As the book is an excellent read, this is an excellent documentary:
