The Dark History of "The Lavender Scare": An Unknown War on Queer American Citizens

Episode 131,   May 08, 07:15 AM

Hi friends, happy Wednesday!

I recently came across this story about something called “The Lavender Scare.” I was like omg… first of all, what a beautiful name. Sounds nice, what is it? And turns out, it was a government sponsored witch hunt, hellbent on ruining the lives of millions of gay people in America… and nobody really talks about it. If you were targeted in the Lavender Scare, your life was over. Pack your bags. You’re moving back to Oklahoma.

I appreciate you for coming by, and tune in next week for more Dark History.
