Watch: Oldest Gay Documentary Found at Library of Congress

A 1961 documentary called The Rejected, produced by San Francisco’s public station KQED, had not been seen for decades and LGBT scholars believed it lost forever. Then, an archivist went on a six-year search and found the only known copy under his nose at the Library of Congress.

KQED reports that staff archivist Robert Chehoski and American University professor Bob Connelly were the sleuths to make the find. You can now watch the whole thing here, via a San Francisco State film archive website.
