Hoover's War on Gays Douglas Charles talked about his book, Hoover’s War on Gays: Exposing the FBI’s “Sex Deviates” Program. Between 1930 and the mid-1970s, the FBI accumulated more than 330,000 pages on so-called “sex deviates,” but these files were destroyed in 1977-1978. Professor Charles talked about his research into the history of the program and the public and official perception of gays during Hoover’s time at the FBI. close
