Four decades after the Stonewall riots, life is dramatically different for LGBT people. We used to be identified by our oppression. But who are we now? Are we still a community?
The city that gave birth to the gay movement has changed, too. What are the untold stories of a culture that thrives in every borough and every corner of the city?
QUEER CITY will explore these and other questions through the lives of a diverse group of men and women living in New York City. The film cannot, of course, represent every aspect of LGBT life, and that is not our goal. Rather, the documentary will weave together stories in narrative style, offering a compelling portrait of American lives.
This is a feature-length exploration of the ways we live now. It also offers a glimpse at the future of gay America. The community still contends with villains and fierce opposition, even in the most cosmopolitan of cities, and many bear lasting scars from those conflicts.
QUEER CITY will incorporate both the routine and the extraordinary to create a remarkable chronicle of queer citizens in a time of change. Often hilarious, sometimes heartbreaking, QUEER CITY will introduce you to stories and people you will never forget.
