After Stonewall1999

  • 4.3
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. It captures the hard work, struggles, tragic defeats and exciting victories experienced since then. It explores how AIDS literally changed the direction of the movement. The two films, BEFORE & AFTER, tell the remarkable tale of how homosexuals, a heretofore hidden and despised group, became a vibrant and integral part of America's family, and, indeed, the world community. Narrated by Melissa Etheridge, and featuring Dorothy Allison, Michael Bronski, Rita Mae Brown, Barney Frank, Barbara Gittings, Arnie Kantrowitz, Larry Kramer, Craig Lucas, Armistead Maupin, Leslea Newman, Barbara Smith and many more.

Well researched with historical interviews that will remain valuable to future reporters. I wasn't there, I know people who were. Understanding the frame in which the Stonewall riot was set helps understand where it came from, and where it led. Excellent.


Celebration of Human spirit and heart and soul of global unity.

All of us in America have a constitutional right to what makes each of us happy, it is called "Liberty".
