From the 1969 Stonewall riots to the AIDS crisis of the 1980s, activism has been at the core of the LGBTQ community. That activism has led to landmark changes such as legalizing same sex marriage, which, according to a recent Gallup poll, 70% of Americans support. The meaning of Pride has also evolved as the battle for rights and equality continues. We talk with three generations of queer activists about how the struggles and victories in the past 50 years laid the groundwork for the legal, political and cultural advances we see today.
