Anita Bryant: Father, we want to thank you for the opportunity of coming to Des Moines

Last Tuesday, the Miami Herald Media Company and WPBT-Channel 2 put The Day It Snowed in Miami, a regional Emmy-winning documentary, up on YouTube for free viewing (and for anyone who doesn't remember "the political activism behind an equal-rights statute in Miami, and how it galvanized the gay rights movement in Florida and beyond," it should be compulsory viewing.)
     While we don't like to see anybody assaulted by anything, we can't deny the visceral pleasure of seeing the condescending, character-assassinating, class-slandering Anita Bryant slathered with meringue.
     Go here to watch the entire documentary on YouTube. It was directed by Joe Cardona and narrated by Margot Winick and produced by Shed Boren of Genesis Fund, Cardona, el Nuevo Herald videographer Jose Iglesias, Miami Herald LGBT issues reporter Steve Rothaus and Miami Herald interactive editor Nancy San Martin.
