The Lavender Scare on PBS!

THE LAVENDER SCARE is a documentary film chronicling a little-known chapter of American history—the U.S. government’s forty-year campaign to remove homosexuals from the federal workforce. Senior Pride was proud to present THE LAVENDER SCARE, with producer Josh Howard in person, at the Loft here in Tucson in January 2019. If you missed it, or were so moved you want to see it again, you can tune in to Arizona Public Media, PBS, Channel Six, at 9pm on Tuesday, June 18.
