Abstract/ Summary

The "Red Scare" of the fifties, when Communists were supposedly infiltrating every facet of life in the U.S., has been replaced by the "Gay Scare" of the seventies. An the ones who perpetuate the "Gay Scare" are as close-minded, misinformed and scared as the late Senator Joseph McCarthy was when he vigorously campaigned against the Community ghosts.
