“Engrossing.... white-hot political theater.” — Variety

Political Animals tells the story of the civil rights struggle of this century – the gay rights movement - through the eyes of four elected women. The film follows four ground- breaking lesbians who took the fight for LGBT causes most personal to them and their communities off the streets and into the halls of government. These women had the courage and foresight to start the work of legal rights of the LGBT community, ultimately paving the way for other states across the nation. Bills they authored included the first domestic partnership registry enacted by a legislature, the first anti-bullying bill protecting gay students and many more. This film shows how their legislation brought about change in laws and societal acceptance, the strategies behind this incremental change, and what tough bargains had to be made to get us to where we are today.

The LGBTQ Community and the Endowment for the Arts face serious challenges under this new administration. One small but significant way you can help is by supporting the work of these non-profit organizations.
