After Stonewall 

Picking up where Before Stonewall left off, director John Scagliotti examines gay life in the aftermath of the 1969 Stonewall riots in New York's Greenwich Village, a landmark moment in gay history when bar patrons stood up to the city's police. From the '70s up through the Matthew Shepard murder, Scagliotti examines the changing face of the gay/lesbian movement over the last three decades, interviewing authors Dorothy Allison, Rita Mae Brown and Armistead Maupin as well as openly gay politicians Barney Frank and HIV-positive New York Councilman Phil Reed. AIDS is dealt with, as are the major events of gay activism: the marches, parades, the Names Project Quilt and the Gay Games. The documentary is part of a film series being shown in conjunction with the Center for Documentary Studies' current William Gedney exhibition. See "Special Showings" for theaters and times.
