Before Stonewall

1h30m USA/UK 1985


IMDb 7.6 high score, Rotten Tomatoes 90% high rating!

New York City's Stonewall Inn is regarded by many as the site of gay and lesbian liberation since it was at this bar that drag queens fought back against police June 27-28, 1969. This documentary uses extensive archival film, movie clips and personal recollections to construct an audiovisual history of the gay community before the Stonewall riots.

"A vital, well-told chronicle of LGBTQ history from the early 20th century to 1969's birth of the modern gay rights movement."-Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times
