About the film:
"OUT RAGE '69" , the first in the four-part series The Question of Equality, examines the social and historical environment that gave rise to the current movement for gay and lesbian civil rights in America as told by those who were there. From Stonewall to Anita Bryant, to Oregon Measure 9 and "don't ask, don't tell," the Gay Liberation movement has fought for equal rights in a climate of hatred, violence, intolerance, and discrimination. The pursuit of individual liberty -- the freedom to think and act freely -- comes with the individual responsibility to not harm the freedom of others.

The San Diego Alliance for Marriage Equality (SAME) announces “Rediscovering Stonewall” an evening program presented by Kelsey Hoffman, on Tuesday July 12th from 6:30 to 8:30PM. The presentation takes place at a special PRIDE week location, in the Canvass for a Cause Building (3705 10th ave,SD,CA. 92103. Near the corner of 10th & Robinson in Hillcrest). This event is intended to further the movement for equality and present an activist's perspective of the actions that birthed the modern LGBT movement.
“It comes down to a fight sometimes, without standing up for who you are, you lose a part of yourself. Without the queens and queers who said 'enough!' at the Stonewall Riots of 1969, the LGBT community would have no Centers, no elected officials, no movement for equal protection, and no marriage equality in New York.” said Sean Bohac, a member of SAME and one of the 'Equality 9'. “We need this history to help us get where we want to go.”
