Thirty-five years ago, America's lesbians and gays -a largely closeted, fragmented and shunned community - experienced a profound turning point. On June 27, 1969, in what is considered the birth of the modern gay civil rights movement, the homosexual, bisexual and transgendered patrons of the Stonewall Bar in New York City spontaneously united and fought back against chronic police harassment, jeers and arrests.
From the emergence of the 70's Gay Liberation Movement and Womyn's music festivals to the onslaught of AIDS, the vibrant Gay Games movement and Ellen DeGeneres' highly publicized coming out performance, AFTER STONEWALL presents a story as compelling, rewarding and provocative as the individual lesbians and gays who defined the era. 1999, 90min.
