Equal Docuseries HBO Max Stephen Kijak

A 4-part docu-series that chronicles the various fights for LGBTQ rights in the years up to and including the Stonewall Uprising and the organizing that led to the very first Pride Marches. Told through a combination of deep archive and stylized recreations, EQUAL features a stunning cast of some of the top LGBTQ actors working today portraying a diverse range of artists, activists, and agitators who were on the front lines of Queer rights and visibility for the last 50 years.

"Equal is an ambitious, fast-paced, dynamic, creatively told, often gripping and frequently moving four-part docu-series landing on HBO Max this LGBTQ History Month to remind us that queer history in the USA did not begin and end with the Stonewall riots in June 1969. Playful, immediate, impactful and infectious - timely and necessary."
The Queer Review

"The new HBO Max docuseries Equal, narrated with cheeky brio by Billy Porter, seeks to convey to the under-40 generations how much of queer history pre-Stonewall was made in the underground-and how much more dangerous being gay or trans could be just a half-century ago...fascinating stories...winkingly self-aware...rebellious cool..." 
The Hollywood Reporter

"Equal is a slick and triumphant reflection...stylistically risky...a necessary story, informed by our past as much as our present." Autostraddle
