As a result of Raid of the Rainbow Lounge's successful efforts, Camina received an invitation to the White House to attend President Barak Obama's 2012 LGBT Pride Month Reception. See more »

User Reviews

 
Compelling reporting by a skilled documentary

Robert Camina has produced a compelling, emotional, yet, in my opinion, an even- handed presentation of the events at the Rainbow Lounge. It is obvious that the final investigative results were not completely satisfying to the LGBT community, but I think, as a few of the interviewees stated, it was as good as they were going to get, and the task at hand was to move forward. I feel it's a tribute to Robert that he did summarize by pointing out the progress that had been made later. I'm very proud of Robert's work on this project and am honored by the strength and determination of the members of the Fort Worth LGBT community.
