You don't need to be a professional historian to know homophobia was normalized, pervasive, and at times internalized in the early 80's. The main characters in "This is not a lie" grapple with living their true selves amid fears of the very real consequences of being outed-for their person as well as for the band as a whole.; "This is not a lie" is at times heartbreaking, at times hopeful. Farrow has created an immersive and honest story with complicated and flawed characters.;Joy Norstrom, author of "Flying the Nest" and "Out of Play".
