Christopher Street West

While Stonewall is commemorated as the flash point into LGBTQI activism and equality, LGBTQI history is diverse and lengthy.

This short documentary gives a glimpse into the life and movement out here on the west coast prior to, during and after Stonewall.

We have come a long way, yet we have a long way ahead of us as well.

One thought on “Christopher Street West

  1. Your right. It sometimes upsets me that we forget the riot at the luncheonette Gene Compton’s., which was prior to Stonewall and involved mostly drag queens and trans. They did not take any shit. Yet before the topic really heated up, this hardly got any press at the time nationally. This is where we really first started to say we had enough and fought back.
