Based on the 2007 historical fiction novel of the same name by Thomas Mallon, Fellow Travelers follows the paths of political staffers Hawkins Fuller and Tim Laughlin, whose paths converge at the height of the Lavender Scare of the 1950s. Despite the constant threat of getting caught, their searing love for each other only intensifies in the tumultuous decades that follow. Their volatile romance spans the Vietnam War protests of the 1960s, the drug-fueled disco hedonism of the 1970s, and the AIDS crisis of the 1980s, as they face obstacles in the world and in themselves.
Actor and executive producer Matt Bomer will be presented with the THR Trailblazer Award. An In Conversation event with Bomer immediately follows the screening.
