Survivors of the four decades-long homosexual witch hunt recount their personal stories of dedication and betrayal at the hands of the Canadian government. Sarah Fodey’s The Fruit Machine gives us a fresh lens on living in an anti-LGBTQ society and how isolating, fearful and degrading it could be. Some softened by age and sadness, others loud and angry, the voices of the victims of Canada’s public service and military homosexual purge are now united and determined.
