For many Americans, it may seem as though the recent waves of change in Gay Rights happened overnight, but this is not so. A brutal road against vicious intolerance and opposition was slowly paved for decades by generations of activists across the nation who fought hard every step of the way. This is a feature-length documentary film about the life and impact of one such leader.Despite recent progress, the LGBTQ community is facing renewed opposition, and new attacks. This story examines the fate of progressive leaders who devote their lives to tireless work on behalf of others, and how individuals can impact the lives of those around them. By organizing strategically, with focus, the flame of that influence can be made to grow ever larger. Please note the film includes adult themes and is recommended for 18 year old plus audiences.
Presented in partnership with Ford House, WE GP, Between the Lines Michigan, Motor City Pride, Ferndale Pride, and Macomb County Pride.
