The wider world well knows the likes of Harvey Milk by now but there are many more Queer heroes in the world and Vito Russo is amongst the most heroic. He is the most quoted source of inspiration for the gay liberation movement. This incredibly empowering documentary tells Vito’s story from Stonewall to the foundation of ACT UP during the AIDS crisis of the 80s. Vito took no prisoners; he was adamant about enforcing our rights, about publically declaring our existence and, for many, most beloved of all as the author behind the lectures, book and film The Celluloid Closet wherein years of research led to the out-ing of the hidden history of homosexuality in the movies. Join Vito’s revolution and understand the power of our community and its impact on the world around us.
