Product Description

DirectorGreta Schiller, Robert Rosenberg

From Gay Essential

The Stonewall riots are indisputably a pivotal moment in the timeline of LGBT rights. Before Stonewall, a 1984 documentary directed by Greta Schiller and Robert Rosenberg, captures the state of the LGBT community prior to the riots, as well as giving viewers a historical background to the contemporary nature of American homosexuality.

“Released in 1985, it helped put a halt on the notion that homosexuality was a product of societal moral decay, a tactical assertion gay rights opponents would sometimes try to insinuate based on a supposed lack of overwhelming historical evidence to the contrary.”
   Slant Magazine

“Through the memories of those who lived through the era, the film paints a vivid picture of tentative gay life.”
   Fourth Row Center

“It was a time when gay cinema was unheard of, gay rights non-existent and consensual sex between two men not only illegal in the eyes of the law, but open to blackmail.”
   Gay Celluloid
