About the Film

An exploration at the LGBT rights movement in California before Stonewall. The birth of the movement is usually credited to Stonewall, but it actually started in LA with Harry Hay and The Mattachine society during the 1940’s, his organization expanded all around the country, inspiring other LGBT activist groups like the Daughters of Billitis, The Tavern Guild, and Counsel of Religion and the Homosexual. The Documentary informs the viewer of the situation back in the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s and how these groups fought to change the legal, medical, and religious view and treatment towards the LGBT community. The main purpose of this Documentary is to highlight the important role that California has played in both the LGBT rights movement and the recorded creation of the LGBT History.
