VH1, Sundance chronicle the Number1 Horizontaldance

by Jeremy Hooper

200803241619VH1 and the Sundance Channel will this May air a four-part documentary series called "Sex: The Revolution", chronicling the changing sexual tide that took place between the 1950's and the 1980's. And as should be expected with a doc of this nature, a big focus will be on LGBT issues, with the 50's part looking at the Kinsey studies, the 60's portion covering Stonewall, the 70's section dedicating time to the growing acceptance during the Harvey Milk era and the subsequent pushback that such tolerance riled up, and the 80's chronicling both the early days of the AIDS crisis and the growing influence of the queer-hostile religious right. Check out the press release for more:

And if all this isn't already enough to ruffle the far right's feathers: We hear the two networks have no plans to get married before their "Sex", instead choosing to broadcast in sin.
