PRIDE

Inspired by an extraordinary true story. It’s the summer of 1984 and much of blue-collar Great Britain is on strike. For one tiny Welsh village, the strike brings unexpected visitors — a group of London-based activists who decide to raise money to support the strikers’ families and want to make their donation in person. In this feel-good, heartwarming comedy, two groups seemingly from worlds apart, discover that standing together makes for the strongest union of all.

3:15-5:30pm
OUT AND PROUD IN CHICAGO

GAY AND LESBIAN RIGHTS – the ACLU Freedom Files

Children separated from parents, loved ones left alone to battle illness, shared property seized by the state–these scenarios may sound like the stuff of nightmares, but they’re all too real for gay and lesbian families in America.

7-8:30pm
STONEWALL UPRISING

When police raided Stonewall on June 28, 1969 (49 years ago tonight), gay men and women did something they had not done before: they fought back. As the streets of New York City erupted into violent protests and street demonstrations, the collective anger announced that the gay rights movement had arrived.
