Coming Out in the 1960s

Four young activists interview gay, lesbian and trans-gender elders who explore how the perfect storm of 1960s activism -- the anti-war, civil rights, and the women's movements -- inspired them to fight for their personal freedoms. These were the years that led up to the Stonewall Riots in 1969. The elders explain what the underground LGBT community looked like pre-Stonewall, and how their treatment created a resentment that boiled over and ultimately gave way to the national modern LGBT movement.
