Introduced by film director Dr. Nick Mulé

This feature documentary links the principles and tenets of gay liberation in the Stonewall era to today’s queer liberation movements. The interviews, spanning historical and contemporary LGBTQ issues, reveal internal politics, provide a critical analysis of the mainstreaming effects of the LGBT equality movements vs. the progressive, sex-positive views of queer liberation movements, and uncover an internal divide between those who are content with equality and those who continue to fight for liberation.

Followed by Q&A with the director
