Celebrate Pride and learn about our rich history at this documentary film screening!
Narrated by Melissa Etheridge
In 1969 the police raided the Stonewall Inn, a gay bar in New York City’s Greenwich Village, leading to three nights of rioting by the city’s gay community. With this outpouring of courage and unity, the Gay Liberation Movement had begun.
After Stonewall, the sequel to Before Stonewall chronicles the history of lesbian and gay life from the riots at Stonewall to the end of the century. The documentary captures the hard work, struggles, tragic defeats, and exciting victories experienced during this time, and it explores how AIDS dramatically changed the direction of the movement.
The film tells the remarkable tale of how LGBT people, a heretofore hidden and despised group, became a vibrant and integral part of America’s family, and, indeed, the world community.
Dorothy Allison, Rita Mae Brown, Barney Frank, Barbara Gittings, Jewelle Gomez, Larry Kramer, Sheila James Kuehl, Armistead Maupin, Elaine Noble, Renae Ogletree, Leslea Newman, Barbara Smith, Robin Tyler, Yolanda ‘Yo-Yo’ Whittaker, and many more!
