The opera Fellow Travelers takes place in a dark time in American history known as the Lavender Scare, in which homosexual government employees were forced out of their jobs based on their sexuality. This panel discussion with LGBTQ leaders and historians addresses a critical time in our country’s history, how rights for the LGBTQ members of our community have evolved since then, as well as the challenges we are currently facing.
