Oregon State's Ballot Measure 9 of 1992 was also known as the anti-gay ballot. This law would have revoked and prevented the passing of any laws offering discriminatory protection to homosexuals. This evocative documentary chronicles the explosive eight month period leading up to the November elections where it was eventually defeated by a 14% margin. It traces the originators of the law and offers input from the opposing sides considering it's ramifications. The film also chronicles the increase in gay bashing, and the homosexual community's demonstrations, right before the election.
