Before Stonewall examines the historical background to the Stonewall riots – from the social experimentation of the Roaring Twenties, to the discovery of the true size of this hidden society during World War II, to the scape-goating of homosexuals during the McCarthy era, to the development of the early homophile rights movement – providing an informative and engaging portrait of the history of homosexual experience in America.

The film also celebrates the strength of character and courage of those who led their lives with dignity despite widespread social discrimination, fear and prejudice.
