On June 27, 1969, police raided The Stonewall Inn, a gay bar in New York. In a spontaneous show of support and frustration, the city's gay community rioted for three nights in the streets, an event that is considered the birth of the modern Gay Rights Movement. This multiple Emmy award winning documentary pries open the closet door, setting free the dramatic stories of gay communities of eras past. Revealing and often humorous, the award winning Before War II and the witch hunt trials of the McCarthy era, before winding up at the Stonewall Inn one summer night. Before Stonewall is essential viewing for all those who have celebrated their sexuality, or have been persecuted because of it.
