Summary Before Stonewall chronicles through interviews and historical footage the social, political and cultural history of homosexuality in America from the 1920s through 1969. Covers many of the milestones in the fight for gay acceptance and equal rights, culminating in the 1969 riots following the police raid on the Stonewall Inn, a gay bar in New York City's Greenwich Village. After Stonewall traces the gay liberation movement in America from the 1969 Stonewall riots through the 1990s capturing the hard work, tragic defeats and exciting victories experienced. Also explores how AIDS changed the direction of the movement.
