Last week, a federal court in Washington ordered the Justice Department and the FBI to release their still-secret archive of LGBT-purge files from that era (details here).
This now-pending release is of more than historical curiosity. The less the public knows about LGBT discrimination, the less bothered they will be when the Trump administration or any succeeding one attempts to strip away our rights, as happened again just last week when they argued that discrimination based on sexual orientation is not prohibited by federal law (details here).
The lawyer arguing for release of the documents said this is an important victory since people must "understand what the government did so we could do our best to avoid repeating history...because we’re at a time when the government — this particular administration — is not supportive of the LGBT community and preserving the civil rights that we have obtained."
Hopefully when this archive is released it will be available online for all to see. One can imagine that Attorney General Sessions will drag his feet on this release as much as possible.
