Thirty 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 ‘70s 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.
