More Gay Hollywood: From Psychiatrist Montgomery Clift to Psycho Anthony Perkins

On the day a U.S. appeals court lifted an injunction that blocked a Mississippi “religious freedom” law – i.e., giving Christians extremists the right to discriminate against gays, lesbians, bisexuals, transgender people, etc. – not to mention the publication of a Republican-backed brutal, vicious health care bill targeting the poor, the sick, the elderly, and those with “pre-conditions” – which would include HIV-infected people, a large chunk of whom are gay and bisexual men, so the wealthy in the U.S. can get a massive tax cut, Turner Classic Movies' 2017 Gay Pride or LGBT Month celebration continues (into tomorrow morning, June 22–23) with the presentation of movies by or featuring an eclectic – though seemingly all male – group: Montgomery […]
