By viewing the life and times of Ruth, you experience a century of gay black history through interviews with Ruth and recreated scenes of this inspiring woman's past. From her first crush on her high school gym teacher in 1917 (!) to the last time she had sex (at 95) and everything in between. With girlfriend ‘Babe', Ruth bought a house, which provided a meeting place for the black gay community in the Midwest in the 40's, 50's and 60's.

You will cry watching this documentary. Nowadays, with so many gay and lesbian youngsters out and about, it's worth reflecting on and honoring those who made it possible. Ruth Ellis is a exceptional person and deserves to be watched and listened to.
