A discussion with LGB groups around the world about the issues they're dealing with when it comes to the rights of lesbians, gay men and bisexuals in the face of gender ideology, homophobia, and free speech.
Why "The Gay Spot" ?
Ruth Ellis, black lesbian pioneer, died in October 2000, aged 101. Ellis & her lifelong partner, Ceciline "Babe" Franklin, moved to Detroit in 1937. From the 40s to the 60s, the couple's house was known as the 'Gay Spot'. Black same-sex couples were not welcome at white gay bars, nor were they welcome at black straight clubs. Their home gave the community a place to dance, sing and socialise.
