          The Stonewall Uprising was an amazing event in New York that is usually credited with the start of Gay Liberation. But, we’re not in New York; we’re in Missouri – a state well-known for its rose-colored, political conservatism. Fortunately, however, we’re in the more liberal leaning, independent city of St. Louis, where the LGBT community has become a tightknit growing force, to advance the rights of all human beings, regardless of gender identity or expression. Producers Dawn Balk and Jen Rich created this 3-minute piece as an entry to the WGBH-Boston's LAB Open Call, to possibly accompany the upcoming documentary showing of, Stonewall Uprising. Allies to the community, and sympathetic to the human rights issues surrounding the struggles of LGBT individuals around the country and the world, Balk and Rich were only able to portray a mere scratch in the surface of Gay Rights in St. Louis, limited by their 3-minute entry constraints. However, the producers will expand the piece to 12-minutes for inclusion in the upcoming St Louis Q-Fest, film festival taking place in April of 2011. Eventually, Balk and Rich will expand the piece to a full length festival piece, for various entries in 2012.
