5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing review of contemporary, gay history. July 10, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Seeing where gays and lesbians have come from; the elated triumphs and horrible tragedies they endured, gives me an incredible appreciation for the rights I am beginning to enjoy. The sexual revolution of the 1970's through the horror of the eighties and the hope of the nineties, "After Stonewall," gives an incredibly inspirational portrayal of the gay and lesbian struggle for acceptance and normalcy.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Struggle Continues... February 14, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
One night in June 1969, a group of people, tired of intolerance from the New York City police department, decided for once they weren't going to take it anymore, and give birth to the modern gay rights movement in the United States. Thirty five years later, it's amazing to see both how far we've come and how far we have yet to go.

After Stonewall depicts the struggle evolving from those empowering nights in New York City, and how it blossomed into a national movement. Long a mecca for the Bohemians of society, New york City is a natural birthplace for such a movement. Now, we see how that movement grew, through the times of trial of the AIDS epidemic, to the growth of the Religious Right and their ultimate intolerance.

This video does try to capture too much in too short of time, but the effect is quick and yet inspirational. It was amazing to listen to those people who were at ground zero of the AIDS epidemic, and the response of the community to it. The section of the AIDS quilt will immediately bring tears; it's poignant and heartbreaking. This documentary stops short of the millenium, but it manages to cover a wide-range of issues.

It's critical as a community that we embrace where we've come from. It seems as we traverse times of trial and tribulation, it's important to understand our roots. It's those roots, based in the stories that are in this movie, that ground us and help instill a sense a pride in where we've come from, and where we'll be going. With that pride comes strength, strength of will, strength of character. The people who so bravely walked before us, are our sources of self-empowerment.

Watch this move, learn, and live.

5.0 out of 5 stars if you buy before then you need after too... July 5, 2006
the perfect follow-up to 'The Making of a Gay and Lesbian Community: Before Stonewall' I've seen both along with another called 'Dangerous Living' - describing the situation in the developing world. These three DVD's are essential and entertaining tools for anyone wanting to help others understand the GBLT community around the world.

I basically like this documentary and have recommended it to friends, but parts of it make me cringe as a historian. On the positive side, it brings together a wonderful mix of archival footage (much of which I hadn't seen before) and great interviews. The analysis of individual events is good. The editing is compelling, entertaining and dramatic without feeling contrived or forced.

However, the broad historical narrative it presents is sometimes misleading. This is because the film reorders events, suggesting false cause-and-effect linkages. For instance, it suggests that the anti-gay crusades of Anita Bryant and Sen. Briggs (in 1977 and 1978) led to the founding of the National Gay Task Force (which actually occurred years earlier) and to a spate of anti-gay arson fires (also years earlier). It suggests that the anti-gay backlash surrounding the death of Rock Hudson happened after the Supreme Court's Bower v. Hardwick decision (1986) and after the wave of gay political activism in response to the Bower verdict (mostly in 1987), whereas Hudson had died the year before the Court ruling. It does this sort of thing again and again.

Presumably the goal was to create a more linear narrative, but it's bad history. I enjoy this documentary very much but please don't use it as your only source of information on the history of the gay community from the 1970s to 1990s.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gay History, Part II February 20, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This somewhat disconnected segue of Before Stonewall: The Making of a Gay and Lesbian Community (see my review; I don't really think it is a sequel, precisely) is as excellent as its predecessor. Narrated by Melissa Etheridge, it does indeed pick up where BEFORE STONEWALL left off ... though I am a bit disappointed that neither documentary addressed the event of the Stone Wall [original spelling] Bar, and how it changed American history.

AFTER STONEWALL leaps away from the WWII generation of gays and lesbians who were covered in BEFORE STONEWALL. This documentary charges onward with gay American history beginning in the 1970s. While not as intimately quirky as BEFORE STONEWALL, it addresses its target crowd: twenty-something gay people with political axes to grind.

As to that, I'd like to add that this documentary is really missing solid political input. Its preceding documentary counterpart at least had some government officials talking about their anti-gay policies. This film, however, seems to avoid the subject altogether. We have to realize that today, with Don't Ask Don't Tell being held to the fire, we still have political axes to grind.

This is an excellent overall documentary, though a bit of a limp shadow of its predecessor. And I cannot think of a worse narrator than Melissa Etheridge!
