The Typist: Staff Pick

 In Staff Picks

Staff pick film, The Typist, directed by Kristine Stolakis, competed in the 2015 Up & Left LGBTQ Short Video Contest.

From the archives of the “queer Smithsonian,” San Francisco’s GLBT Historical Society, comes the forgotten history of a gay Korean War veteran tasked with writing the military discharges of outed gay seamen. The Typist details a conflicted clerk’s participation in discrimination and his divided allegiance to homosexuality and heroism.
