Trivia

Two organizations represented in this film are, respectively, the two largest, officially organized, LGBT membership organizations in the world. The largest is the Metropolitan Community Church (MCC), an international Protestant Christian denomination of gay organized and operated local churches, with over 220 member congregations in 37 countries. The second largest is the International Imperial Court System (IICS), which is a grassroots network of organizations working to build community relationships through equality and fundraising for charitable causes by and through production and presentation of annual drag beauty pageants ending in gala coronation balls.

In December of 1974, gay men and women went to bed sick, and woke up the next day instantly cured.
25 July 2010 | by lastliberalSee all my reviews

Things started changing dramatically after Stonewall. The American Psychiatric Association declared that being gay was not a sickness, the women's movement included a lot of lesbians who refused to back down, and gay men and women started protesting with a commemoration of the Stonewall riots.

The march continued as gays and lesbians had churches to attend, and politicians that were just like them. There was a backlash, of course, as people like Anita Bryant led a charge against gays and lesbians.

Homosexuality may no longer be a mental illness, but with Bryant, Ronald Reagan, and Jerry Falwell in the public limelight, it became a sin. This at the time that AIDS came on the scene.

A fascinating look at the ups and downs of the movement.
