Finding legal materials relating to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered individuals (LGBT) and their status may involve sophisticated legal research. LGBT legal issues are frequently discussed as matters of civil rights, social justice or human rights and many approaches are cross-disciplinary in nature; bear this in mind as you conduct research.

An Early Frost
Synopsis: Set in the mid-eighties Michael Pierson, a young gay man, is struck with AIDS in the prime of his life. He’s forced to be open about the disease and his homosexuality for the first time with his co-workers (he’s a successful lawyer) and family. He, and the people around him, must face up to the inevitablity of his death and the disease that’s killing him.
