Abstract:

Stonewall is the name of a homosexual bar in New York where gay resistance to frequent police harassment came to a head over three days and nights in 1969. This marked the beginning of a large scale campaign to gain rights and respect for being different. Even as far back as the twenties lesbians and gays had formed groups, produced newspapers, opened restaurants and discussed their problems. This film traces half a century of a parallel culture using film, film clips, photographs and accounts from participants.
