I love the history , how people would meet as opposed to now , We use all Social Media , We Almost dont have to go Out to meet New People
a great recap of underground gay life leading up to the stonewall uprising.
truthful, interesting, fantastic unseen footage. Great research and beautifully presented. The . filmmakers have much to be proud of.
Incredibly important film! I've seen it long ago, multiple times, and it has not lost its relevance - probably more important than ever - and it will continue to be an important document for each new generation to come. It's historically important, a document of many voices no longer with us, and wildly entertaining.
I saw After Stonewall before seeing Before Stonewall. I don't think it particularly matters. Having this film created in the 80s allows us to get the words of many early activists who are unfortunately no longer with us. It paints what is thankfully becoming more of a sad period in history that has now passed.
So glad I finally got around to watching this!
An interesting relic of the 80s - shakily assembled, it sort of meanders along without much drive or focus. However, the opportunity to hear from some of these important people, most of whom have passed on since the documentary was made, makes the viewing more than worth it.
Rita Mae Brown serves as the narrator for this compelling documentary about the concept of homosexuality and its effect on society
it traces back to the early beginnings of gays and lesbians coming out about their sexual nature and having to face judgment along with persecution
all the interviews and reasearch studies are well-put together deciphering the events leading up to the Stonewall riots in the summer of 1969
the viewer's knowledge and understanding will be wonderfully expanded about the gay perspective
it's a terrific film in case you want to learn about human studies or more about homosexuals, it should not be missed
Great historical prospective of US Gay History. Great footage starting in the 20's! Highly recommend it to any history buff or anyone intersted in G/L issues.
What a great window on Gay and Lesbian life prior to the liberation movement of the 60's.
