This look at LGBT movement in Canada starts with the impact of the Stonewall Riots through the Toronto Bathhouse Raids and the political battles that paved the way for the legalization of marriage and explores the struggles that still lie ahead.

Stock footage combined with feature interviews with leaders from the community takes you through the key moments in LGBTQ history.

Reverend Brent Hawkes (Sr. Pastor Metropolitan Community Church, Member of the Order of Canada), Ken Popert (Founder of The Pink Triangle Press) and Brenda Cossman (Law Professor and Director of the Bonham Center for Sexual Diversity Studies at the University of Toronto) give us a personal look at the emergence activist, the battles, the triumphs and the challenges that still lie ahead.
