Mentally ill. Deviant. Diseased. And in need of a cure.


These were among the terms psychiatrists used to describe gay women and men in the 1950s, 1960s, and early 1970s. And as long as they were “sick”, progress toward equality was impossible. CURED takes viewers inside the campaign that led to a pivotal yet largely unknown moment in the struggle for LGBTQ equality: the American Psychiatric Association’s 1973 decision to remove the diagnosis of homosexuality from its manual of mental illnesses. Combining eyewitness testimony with newly unearthed archival footage, the award-winning film reveals how a small group of impassioned activists achieved this unexpected victory.
