When We Rise

When We Rise

A dramatization of the real life San Francisco centered fight for LGBT rights from 1972 to 2015 is presented, the LGBT community which arguably has had the most numerous organized campaigns against them of any minority group to suppress those rights in the United States during that time period. It focuses on the advocacy and other supportive work of four individuals, Cleve Jones, Roma Guy, Diane Jones and Ken Jones, whose experiences focus on different aspects of the issue. Cleve's story focuses primarily on the political and legislative fight for gay and ultimately LGBT rights. Roma's story focuses primarily on her fight for women's rights, especially safe places for women, within that where she as a lesbian fits, ultimately a fight for universal health care in San Francisco, and her personal relationships particularly with Diane. Beyond that relationship with Roma, Diane's story focuses on her work as a nurse in caring for AIDS patients, and her want as a lesbian to have a child. ... Written by Huggo

1972. Cleve, a Quaker living at home in Phoenix with his psychologist father and activist mother, decides to wait until he is eighteen to come out to his parents for fear that if he did it earlier that his father, who sees homosexuality as a disease, would use what Cleve considers some extreme form of therapy to cure him. Now at an age of majority, Cleve decides move to San Francisco to live in what he hopes is a safer environment than home with his father. He will find that San Francisco has its own hazards for a young, gay man. Turning to the activism he learned from his mother, Cleve further finds that he will have to carve out his own niche in the changing face of the city and times. Working with the Peace Corps, Roma decides to leave Togo, where outward forms of affection between two women such as hand holding is normalized, and leave her girlfriend Diane, who she knows she may never see again, to go where she feels her calling is stronger, namely working for women's rights ...

1981. The murders of Harvey Milk and George Moscone, which were ruled manslaughter by the all white/all straight jury, mobilized the gay community even further where they are now making inroads at the political level, Cleve who is working for a state assemblyman. With the birth of Diane's baby, Diane and Roma's relationship takes a turn where Diane feels a need to focus on her new job as a nurse at the hospital, and taking care of Annie. Ken is operating a center for youth at risk, most of those kids who have come from elsewhere, some who are gay, and have no support at all and thus largely end up on the street otherwise. And the new sexual freedom that gay men in particular feel they can now exhibit partly manifests itself in public sex in bathhouses. The gay community begins to be rocked once again when large numbers of gay men, especially in larger urban centers, fall ill with immune damaged systems, more often than not leading to death. The disease is initially coined gay related ... Written by Huggo

1992. The gay male and lesbian movements are merging closer and closer to being one cohesive and supportive family. The AIDS epidemic has devastated the gay male community, with Cleve, Ricardo, Ken and Richard all having tested positive for the virus, some having been close to death, but all who have watched most of their gay friends die. Both Cleve and Ricardo, and Ken and Richard have vowed to each other that they will stay with each other to the end, through what will most likely be a painful death. Those vows may be difficult to keep if and when the time comes. In their own individual health situations, Cleve has so far refused to take AZT, wanting to feel better without the drug than feel crappy with the drug, with no real proven evidence that the drug will prolong life. Cleve may have to go to the other side to get access to more promising experimental drugs. He will get some unexpected support in the matter. And under changing circumstances, Ken decides he has no other option... Written by Huggo
