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!
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.
