Format: VHS Tape
I was absolutely amazed at the filmmaker for their genius in telling some of stories of the most important lesbian and gay historical figures with that of current issues. A truly rich documentary without overloading you with too many facts.
The documentary follows the struggle of Kelli Peterson, the teenager that challenged her high school to register her Gay Straight Alliance. The film does a wonderful job in comparing her current struggle with those of the past in lesbian and gay history.
One of the most powerful segments in the film is about hte gay man who was behind Martin Luther King's civil rights demonstrations.
This is a very important film for all persons to see. Perfect for the classroom and for any other situation that will inspire people to be active and become activists!

This documentary weaves the past into the future and gives us all a better and more complete picture of gay and lesbian life in America. This video should be mandatory in schools across the country which have consistently excluded gay and lesbian people from their history books. This video inspires and motivates, like few films do.

This film draws from the personal experience of Kelli Peterson's attempt in 1996 to start a high school social club, and the obstacles she and her allies faced as a result. The film is worth seeing for her experience alone. But it is more than your average documentary. By interweaving vignettes of other gay people's lives and activism, (from Sarah Orne Jewitt to Barbara Gittings), the directors offer the viewer a complex look into what it means to be identified by society based on who you love.

I was introduced to this video prior to its airdate in a history class, and i found it particularly striking. The video imagery is vivid, and the message is clear: gays are everywhere, have been everywhere for all time, and are not going anywhere. It's a great video for people who are discovering themselves, or who wish to learn about how gays and views of them have changed throughout history. It's true, real, and means very much to me.

Format: VHS Tape
This outstanding video is centered on a modern day fight for equality as it engagingly weaves the reality of our history into today. This inter-twining allows the viewer to grasp how history impacts the lives of everyone, hundreds of years later. It's excellent in its story telling and point-making. I, too, believe this should be required viewing in all Jr. High, High School and College level cirriculum. It's invaluable because of how it invites the viewer to challenge stereotypes and question the false history they're being taught in some many books. THANK YOU!

This film is a eye opening documentary focusing on a part of history denied by standard historical documents. A motivating force for gay activists and a great dose of reality for those of us in the "straight community"

Format: VHS Tape
This is a great documentary told in a manner to parallel the struggles of a high school student trying to organize a gay student union at her school. This documentary is not heavy-laden with tons of facts but is a highlight of many historical events showing the contributions of lesbians and gays in America's history.
Teachers may use this video to teach their students about tolerance and acceptance. This is a great resource for any person to keep in their personal libraries.

Starting with some brave teens in Utah, this documentary looks at various events in the history of American gays. The people in this film simply want equality, not special rights, but they receive special discrimination. Many of them have succeeded in making life better for other gays, and their stories will inspire others to continue the struggle for equality.
