The struggle for Gay and Lesbian Rights in America

"We were up against a solid wall of ignorance." wrote Henry Gerber of his efforts during the 1920s to launch the first gay rights organization in the United States. The struggles and triumphs of Gerber along with the incredible stories of civil rights activist Bayard Rustin and other important figures of American history are profiled in this powerful film.

Told through the eyes of Kelli Peterson, a 17-year-old high school student in Salt Lake City, Utah, Out of the Past explores Kelli's history-making experiences of forming a Gay Straight Alliance in her public school. The protests, legislative battles and national media attention now serve as a modern counterpoint to the history of a Human Rights movement.

Narrated by Academy Award winner Linda Hunt and featuring the voices of Gwyneth Paltrow, Stephen Spinella and Edward Norton; this eye-opening history lesson reveals the touching and personal fight for equality that continues today.
