Even before Stonewall, Pride took root in the 1960s when lesser-known heroes from marginalized communities, including queer girls of color and trans women, played an integral role in the advancement of the movement. Through activism and protest, small and large, the LGBTQ+ community struggled for rights, acceptance and equality.

In this personal journey, Cheryl Dunye interweaves archival footage, personal testimonies and interviews to show how the 1970s helped forge a national movement, from the first Gay Pride march, to the rise of artists like filmmaker Barbara Hammer and poet Audre Lorde, to the confrontation of intersectional feminism and the backlash and opposition from the religious right.

The 1990s were supposed to herald a new era for the LGBTQ+ community. With the election of Bill Clinton, they finally had an ally in the White House -- or so they thought. The "Culture Wars" were in full swing, and being fought everywhere from Capitol Hill to movie theaters to churches. They devastated communities but also galvanized LGBTQ+ people to create policies and organizations that still fight for equality today.

The 2000s ushered in a new age of queer visibility where gays and lesbians were gaining acceptance in the mainstream media. But even as cisgender white members of the LGBTQ+ community found a place in society, the struggle for trans rights continued, and that fight has only in the present day taken the main stage.

Critic Reviews for Pride Limited Series

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (5)

Any docuseries can check off significant timeline clicks receive their due, but Pride works because it is because asks us to experience many eras with the people who lived through them.

May 17, 2021 | Full Review…

Pride condenses decades of history as best it can, recognizing the progress made and the battles that remain.

May 14, 2021 | Full Review…

Pride is not perfect, and does not aim to be: What it is, to its credit, is the beginning of the story, told with certain key specifics. It leaves the viewer hungry to continue their own research.

May 14, 2021 | Full Review…

Across six episodes, which FX is broadcasting over two weeks, you're almost certain to find injustices that outrage you, heroes whose truncated lives sadden and inspire you and recurring figures.

May 13, 2021 | Full Review…

Pride is very much alive, partly because it goes deep rather than wide in wrangling the unwieldy, unmanageable stories that make up an equally untidy movement.

May 12, 2021 | Full Review…

Documentaries tracing America's LGBTQ+ history tend to follow a well-worn path from Stonewall to AIDS to the transgender-rights movement, but this series scores by working in some lesser-known highlights.

Jun 9, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Builds into something powerful, stirring, and monumental.

May 17, 2021 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Pride's decade-by-decade approach to the story of LGBTQIA+ civil rights fills in just enough new information to make watching worthwhile.

May 16, 2021 | Full Review…

What truly distinguishes Pride, regardless of time frame, is its celebration of community, seen most vividly in the colorful archives of 1980s home movies shot throughout New York City by tireless videographer Nelson Sullivan.

May 13, 2021 | Full Review…

Despite its unwieldy task of condensing 70 years of history in less than six hours, the show manages to be informative, entertaining, and appeal to those who are well versed in the LGBTQ movement.
