Less than 10 years after the Stonewall Riots, Anita Bryant began a
successful campaign to repeal gay rights in Dade County, Florida.
Anita became nationally notorious and gave legitimacy to a new
style of right-wing politics and helped launch the Moral Majority
and other movements that continue to the present day.
Anita Bryant’s notoriety also had a major impact on the
gay rights movement, propelling Harvey Milk into office and reviving
enthusiasm and anger at a time when it was most needed.
In 1978, Anita Bryant sat down for an outrageous and memorable
8-day interview with Ken Kelley of Playboy Magazine.
This is that interview, recreated on stage with additional material that sets the
historical scene and brings the issues raised by the interview to the present day.
Anita didn’t hold back in her interview, and neither does this funny, touching, thought-provoking piece.
