Revisiting Hidden Histories, LGBTs, censorship in American Art
From an In the Life news release

March 1, 2011 — Tonight public television stations across the country will begin airing Revisiting Hidden Histories, an episode from the award-winning newsmagazine IN THE LIFE uncovering diverse expressions of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) sexuality and gender difference in American art, and the forces that have censored them.

American art is rich with LGBT themes and renowned works by LGBT artists, yet sexuality has largely been edited out of art history. This episode features a look back at Hide/Seek, the first major museum exhibition to acknowledge representations of LGBT identity in art. The exhibit sparked controversy among conservative religious leaders and politicians who demanded the removal of David Wojnarowicz's video installation, A Fire in my Belly, calling his depiction of the anger he faced while dying from AIDS "religious hate speech."

Then, IN THE LIFE revisits the fascinating life of professor, tattoo artist and sexual renegade, Sam Steward. Sam's far-reaching impact includes detailed journals and recordkeeping, which were invaluable to the studies of Alfred Kinsey, and artistry that inspired famed designer Ed Hardy. Author Justin Spring chronicles the life of Samuel Steward in his book, Secret Historian.
