Mark Christopher, writer/director of "54" and "Alkali, Iowa" hosts our special edition of "In the Life" in the City of Angels. On this special edition, we explore the stories, people, and programs making a difference in Los Angeles-and the world. With its rich history and cultural diversity, Tinseltown's gay population, like Alan Ball, is flourishing. As early as the 1950's, gay Angelenos began forging their own communities, creating new forums to speak out, and helping foster the gay and lesbian movement across the country. Our feature stories include: The 2001 grand opening of the One Institute & Archives, which took its name after the gay magazine of the fifties and sixties, an American Beauty journeys to Tinseltown, fighting fires, fighting intolerance, fighting for safe schools, and Harvey Fierstein sets the record "straight" on who's gay in Hollywood.
