After Stonewall: America's LGBT Movement
Narrated by Melissa Etheridge. In 1969 the police raided the Stonewall Inn, a gay bar in New York City's Greenwich Village, leading to three nights of rioting by the city's gay community. With this outpouring of courage and unity the Gay Liberation Movement had begun. After Stonewall, the sequel to Before Stonewall, chronicles the history of lesbian and gay life from the riots at Stonewall to the end of the century. It captures the hard work, struggles, tragic defeats and exciting victories experienced since them. It explores how AIDS literally changed the direction of the movement. The two films, Before & After, tell the remarkable tale of how homosexuals, a heretofore hidden and despised group, became a vibrant and integral part of America's family, and, indeed, the world community. Featuring Dorothy Allison, Michael Bronski, Rita Mae Brown, Barney Frank, Barbara Gittings, Arnie Kantrowitz, Larry Kramer, Craig Lucas, Armistead Maupin, Leslea Newman, Barbara Smith, and many more!

As a member of both the African American and LGBT communities, filmmaker Yoruba Richen is fascinated with the overlaps and tensions between the gay rights and the civil rights movements. She explores how the two struggles intertwine and propel each other forward — and, in an unmissable argument, she dispels a myth about their points of conflict. A powerful reminder that we all have a stake in equality.
Growing Up Gay
In this eye-opening and timely film, young pop culture icon Olly Alexander explores why the gay community is more vulnerable to mental health issues and opens up about his own long-term battles with depression. The outspoken frontman of British band, Years and Years, Olly is a powerful voice on mental health, bullying, and LGBT rights. He has broken taboos with music videos that celebrate queer identities, and spoken openly about his own sexuality and ongoing struggles with anxiety.

Kristie Overstreet is on a mission to ensure that the transgender community gets their health care needs met.

Transgender Kids: Who Knows Best?
This program explores the divisive debate over whether a child should be free to make permanent changes to their gender. Dr. Kenneth Zucker once ran the largest public clinic in Toronto for treating children and adolescents with gender dysphoria, an often violent feeling that the body they were born in does not match their true gender. But then Zucker was fired and his clinic closed down amid comparisons to a religious zealot trying to "cure" homosexuality. His supporters believe he is a victim of a virulent form of transgender politics that stifles freedom of speech. The program features interviews with Zucker, his patients, the families, the clinicians and transgender activists. A BBC Production.
This documentary challenges the viewer to question their notions of what it means to be male or female. By taking us on a journey through the eyes that see the world differently, it explores the diversity that exists within the transgender community, as well as the depth of the transgender experience in day-to-day living.

LGBTQ+ Community Equality
The campaign for equality for people who are part of the LGBTQ+ community (which includes lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer people and others with a broad range of sexual orientations and gender identities) in the United States has seen significant success since the mid-twentieth century. Public opinion and federal law have shifted considerably over time, with support for rights like same-sex marriage dramatically shifting from the 1980s to the late 2010s. In 2015, several states still had laws against same-sex marriage, but the Supreme Court ruled that all people have a constitutional right to marry. On June 15, 2020, the Supreme Court ruled that LGBTQ+ employees are protected by federal law in the 1964 Civil Rights Act prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sex.
Resources for LGBTQ+ Students
The mission of the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR) is to ensure equal access to education and to promote educational excellence through vigorous enforcement of civil rights in our nation's schools. To serve this mission, OCR enforces civil rights laws to protect all students, including lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ+) students, from unlawful discrimination and harassment based on race, color, national origin, sex, disability, and age.
