Before Stonewall

Before Stonewall

Using filmed recollections and a wealth of archival material (including excerpts from silent-films newsreels and Hollywood musicals), Before Stonewall traces the social, political and cultural development of the gay and lesbian community, portraying the daily lives of homosexuals in the USA before 1969, the year of the riot at New York's Stonewall Inn that provided the impetus for gay pride.
