“Intellectual, emotional and sexual.” —The New York Times
“With style and a sense of humor, THE TEMPERAMENTALS mixes politics with campy comedy and unexpected bursts of emotional candor.” —Time Out New York
“Temperamental” was code for “homosexual” in the early 1950s, part of a created language of secret words that gay men used to communicate. THE TEMPERAMENTALS tells the story of two men—the communist Harry Hay and the Viennese refugee and designer Rudi Gernreich—as they fall in love while building the first gay rights organization, The Mattachine Society, in the pre-Stonewall United States.
