'Before Homosexuals' Banner

'BEFORE HOMOSEXUALS' takes the viewer on a wondrous tour of same-sex desire from ancient times to Victorian crimes. Inspired by gay liberation, historians and artists join Emmy Award-winner John Scagliotti on this revel in recent erotic discoveries. This continues John’s pioneering work. He has produced many now-classic documentaries, such as BEFORE STONEWALL and AFTER STONEWALL. He also created the first LGBT radio show (THE LAVENDER HOUR, 1973) and television series on PBS (IN THE LIFE, 1991 to  2012). In recognition of his service to the LGBT community, he received an honorary doctorate from Marlboro College, VT.

A Note From The Director, John Scagliotti:

Our film, “After Stonewall” allowed us to show how every institution had to change in the late 20th century to accommodate the millions of LGBT people who came out making demands for justice and equality. That liberating process in the late 20th century also helped the producers find this newly uncovered material of early same-sex love and desire that now makes up the film “Before Homosexuals.”
 
“While [we were] making ‘Before Stonewall’ there were no LGBT archives. In order to make the film, [we] had to interview hundreds of people from all over America. They provided us with the material and history that we needed. This film ‘Before Homosexuals’ is our history. This is the history lesson that we all need. This film is the affirmation of same-sex love that was etched in stone some 2,500 years ago.”
