Dee has been an activist for women’s health since the early 1970s. During medical school and psychiatric residency, she began a second career as a documentary filmmaker, co-producing Closets Are Health Hazards: Gay and Lesbian Physicians Come Out and Lesbian Physicians on Practice, Patients, and Power. In response to the 1992 election in which the Republican Party used homophobia as a fundraising tool (while her father was H.W. Bush’s Secretary of Commerce and then chief fundraiser), she co-produced and directed Straight from the Heart, which received an Academy Award™ nomination. Dee produced or co-produced a total of 9 documentaries on homophobia including Out for a Change: Addressing Homophobia in Women’s Sports; All God’s Children; DeColores; and No Secret Any More: The Times of Del Martin and Phyllis Lyon. These films have received a total of 46 awards—from LGBTQ+, Black, Latina, Latin American, and Aging Media film festivals, including best of show awards, grand jury awards, and audience awards, in the U.S., U.K., Australia, Cuba, Mexico, and Italy. The films have touched people’s lives across the world, changed people’s minds about homophobia, and improved the lives of LGBTQ+ individuals. Dee and spouse, who is also a psychiatrist, Nanette Gartrell, worked to eliminate homophobia in the DSM.

Radical Harmonies is the first in-depth study of the women’s music festivals of the 1970’s and 1980’s. This full-length documentary chronicles the Women’s Music Cultural Movement and its evolution from a “girl with guitar” to a revolution in the roles of women in music and culture. The movement gave birth to an alternative industry that changed women and music forever. In addition, the first surveys of women’s health, with attention to lesbian health, were conducted at these music festivals.
