This 4-part documentary was produced for public broadcasting by Testing the Limits for the Independent Television Service with funds provided by the CPB, Channel 4 in the U.K., and other funders. Aired by KQED, San Francisco. Each segment is about 55 min. long. 1. Out Rage '69 - Looks at key historical moments in the 1960s that sparked the formation of the gay and lesbian rights movement, including the Stonewall riots of 1969. 2. Culture Wars - Explores three key instances of anti-gay backlash - the murder of Julio Rivera; the release of Marlon Riggs' film Tongues Untied; and Oregon's Ballot Measure 9 - in the midst of the AIDS crisis and the gay community's response to these. 3. Hollow Liberty - Focuses on the federal laws and policies that effectively restrict the rights of gay and lesbian Americans and relegate them to second-class citizens, specifically the military's discriminatory history and the Supreme Court's 1986 Bowers vs. Hardwick decision. 4. Generation Q - Seeks to give an answer to the question of whether all that has gone before has made it any easier for the youth of 1995 to be openly gay or lesbian.
