“When We Rise” chronicles the personal and political struggles, set-backs and triumphs of a diverse family of

turbulent infancy in the 20th century to the once unfathomable successes of today. The period piece tells the
history of the gay rights movement, starting with the Stonewall Riots in 1969.
