A Yahoo News documentary, reported and narrated by Michael Isikoff, explores a dark and little-known chapter of America’s recent political past when gays and lesbians were barred from employment in the federal government and the FBI, through its “sex deviates” program, secretly collected hundreds of thousands of files on the sex lives of American citizens.
