Homosexuality was considered a mental illness until a small group of impassioned activists confronted the American Psychiatric Association. This powerful new documentary illuminates a pivotal yet largely unknown chapter in the struggle for LGBT equality: the campaign that led the APA to remove homosexuality from its list of mental illnesses in 1973. This film reveals a pivotal moment in the gay liberation movement— an unexpected victory that changed not only the LGBTQ community, but also the field of psychiatry.
