The battle over gay rights is the first great fight for freedom in the 21st century. It has moved ahead of battles over civil rights for African Americans, and equal rights for women. You can say that the last two battles are won.

This documentary tells the devastating story of AIDS and its dramatic effect on the gay rights movement. What started as a small outbreak of a rare form of cancer in 1981, spread to become a deadly pandemic in modern history.

The documentary starts with battle over gay rights even from the early 40s and 50s, and moves past to the latest years in our history. Featuring interviews with activists and never before seen personalities speaking on the topic, the documentary covers a large spectrum of questions and answers.

The documentary also explores the time when being gay was seen as a mental illness.
