OUT RAGE '69, the first in the four-part series The Question of Equality, examines the social and historical environment that gave rise to the current movement for gay and lesbian civil rights in America as told by those who were there. From Stonewall to Anita Bryant, to Oregon Measure 9 and "don't ask, don't tell," the Gay Liberation movement has fought for equal rights in a climate of hatred, violence, intolerance, and discrimination. The pursuit of individual liberty -- the freedom to think and act freely -- comes with the individual responsibility to not harm the freedom of others.
