Political Animals

The inspiring story of some of the unsung heroes of the gay rights movement, “Political Animals” follows four visionary politicians in their fight for the legal rights of the LGBTQ community. Emotionally charged as its subjects, the film documents four groundbreaking lesbians who took the fight for the causes most personal to them and their communities from the streets into the halls of government. Winning both the Audience and Grand Jury prizes at the 2016 Los Angeles Film Festival, “Political Animals” tells the true, if often bizarre and maddening decades-long story of those paving the way for the freedoms we have today.
