Being Gay in the USA
Since 2003 a US Supreme Court ruling says states can’t make consensual private homosexual activity between two adults a crime.

Some American states still exercise blatantly discriminatory anti-gay laws and only 17 out of 50 permit gay marriages. This programme focuses on life for gay men in America and explains why it is important for them to be able to marry, go to church and be accepted by society without having to sacrifice their true identity.
