CHICAGO – The 2020 Pride Weekend, which occurs every year around the June 28th anniversary date of the Stonewall Inn uprising, will be remembered not for the LGBTQ+ themed parades or observances, but the cancellation of those events due to COVID-19. But the celebration continues, as the film series “Reel Pride” reviews the documentary “After Stonewall.”

“Reel Pride” is co-hosted by Patrick McDonald of HollywoodChicago.com and arts reviewer Jeffrey Leibham of AroundtheTownChicago.com. The YouTube series reviews LBGTQ+ films through cinema history, to increase awareness of the passion for these cinematic stories within feature films and documentaries. For additional reviews, click the title links of ”Stonewall” (1995), ”Stonewall” (2015) and ”Parting Glances” / “Cruising”.
