Abstract:

An excellent sociological case study, this ABC News program examines the plight of Michael Shackelford, a 17-year-old homosexual struggling for acceptance in small-town Oklahoma. The video outlines the development of Shackelford's situation: his early awareness of his sexual orientation, his inability to conform and placate his mother, the attention he receives in a Washintong Post article, and the subsequent media abuse he and his church endure as a result. Complex and surprising in its observations--especially those concerning Shackelford's Bible Belt community--the program sheds light on America's increasingly troublesome cultural division.
