ABC hires gay activist to write 8-hour miniseries about the history of the ‘gay rights’ movement
LOS ANGELES, CA, August 9, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – ABC plans to air an 8-hour miniseries about the history of homosexual activism, penned by a prominent homosexual political activist.
Homosexual writer and director Dustin Lance Black will write the miniseries. Its timeline will reportedly begin with the 1969 Stonewall Riots, in which a police raid on a gay bar resulted in several nights of violent demonstrations by homosexuals in New York City. The miniseries is expected to air sometime just before the holiday season.
Black, 39, has been active in the homosexual advocacy movement since the beginning of his film career. He made his debut as a director and screenwriter with 2000’s The Journey of Jared Price, a gay romance film, followed closely by Something Close to Heaven, a gay coming-of-age short film. The following year, he made a documentary in which he was also a subject called On the Bus, about six homosexual men on a road trip to the Burning Man music festival.
Black, who was raised Mormon, is a co-founder of the American Foundation for Equal Rights, the group behind the lawsuit to overturn California’s voter-approved Proposition 8 gay ‘marriage’ ban. He narrated the church-bashing homosexual documentary “8: The Mormon Proposition” in 2010. He is also said to be the only writer and producer on the HBO series Big Love, about a polygamous Mormon family, who had any prior connection to the Mormon church.

Black’s project is not the only homosexual-themed miniseries ABC has in development. The network is also planning an adaptation of journalist David France's How to Survive a Plague, a 2012 documentary focused on militant gay activist groups ACT Up and TAG, which organized protests during the AIDS epidemic in the 1980s. Included in the documentary is footage of the infamous 1989 protest at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in which protesters disrupted Mass and desecrated a Communion host, crushing it to pieces and throwing it onto the floor in front of then-Archbishop John Cardinal O’Connor.
Bryan Fischer, director of issues analysis for the American Family Association, told LifeSiteNews he expects Black’s miniseries to “glorify” homosexual behavior while painting those who oppose it as bigots.
“Given the people who are behind this project, you can count on two things: it will glorify the homosexual lifestyle by ignoring the numerous pathologies that are associated with it, and will paint conservative Christians as knuckle-dragging, hate-filled Neanderthals,” Fischer said. “In other words, it won't be remotely connected to reality.”
Fischer noted that the expected runtime for the series is twice as long as the network’s upcoming biographical miniseries about Hillary Clinton – a project the Republican National Committee slammed as “propaganda.”
“It'll be twice as long as the Hillary Clinton biopic, and twice as fawning in the treatment of its subject,” predicted Fischer.
