‘Don’t Sneak’: A Father’s Command to His Gay Son in the 1950s

Patrick Haggerty was a teenager in rural Dry Creek, Washington, in the late 1950s. In this StoryCorps animated short, The Saint of Dry Creek, he remembers the advice his father, a dairy farmer, gave him when he realized his son was gay. Haggerty’s interview was recorded as part of the StoryCorps OutLoud initiative, and this film is in partnership with the It Gets Better Project.
