WHEN WE RISE 

Whoever you are, you are not alone

How I wish I’d heard those words as I was coming up in my life.

I lived through this alone.

I was born and raised in Puerto Rico, far away from this struggle.

I struggled on my own until I discovered that I wasn’t the only one who was different.

I discovered others like me.

The process was long and prolonged. There was no internet then. The books that were available were few and difficult to come by.

Yet, I totally identify with the struggle.

That’s why we are not standing down now after the advances made since then.

I thank all of those who came before me.

I refuse to go back into the closet.

~A Love Letter to LGBT Activism~

When We Rise” was written and created by Academy Award-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black.

This mini-series event chronicles the real-life personal and political struggles, set-backs and triumphs of a diverse family of LGBT men and women who helped pioneer one of the last legs of the U.S. Civil Rights movement, from its turbulent infancy in the 20th century to the once unfathomable successes of today.

~Cleve Jones landed in San Francisco too late for the Summer of Love~

Fifty years ago, about 100,000 young people from around the country converged on San Francisco.

They were flower children and hippies, queers and artists, radicals and draft dodgers. A generation of freethinkers looked to the city for change, with resistance, liberation, and free expression unfurling in every corner.

Because of them, the city gave rise to movements in support of the rights of women, African-Americans, gays, farm workers, Native Americans, animals, and even the planet.

Change was everywhere.

ABC’s groundbreaking miniseries When We Rise introduces us to the lives, loves, and struggles of these activists, covering a 40-year span in the long battle for LGBT equality.
