“Temperamental” was code for “homosexual” in the early 1950’s, part of a created language of secret words that gay men used to communicate.

The Temperamentals tells the story of two men - the communist Harry Hay and the Viennese refugee and designer Rudi Gernreich - as they fall in love while building the first gay rights organization in the pre-Stonewall United States.

'The Temperamentals' succeeds... the cast is, to a man, excellent - Andy Webster, NY Times
