IN THEATERS NOVEMBER 1 - 15

Synopsis

Narrated by Laverne Cox and with music by Melissa Etheridge, this moving documentary focuses on major events and watershed moments in LGBTQ history through never-before-seen archival footage and engaging interviews, including Cleve Jones, Caitlyn Jenner, Gloria Allred, Gavin Newsom, Don Lemon, Dustin Lance Black, Margaret Cho, Armistead Maupin, and many more. Starting with the Black Cat Riots, the film covers Stonewall, the disco sexual revolution that continued from the late 60s, the AIDS crisis, marriage equality, and the trans movement to the present day. We've come a long way, but we've still got a long way to go.
