Forty years to the day after the Stonewall Inn was raided, Fort Worth gay bar the Rainbow Lounge was the site of a controversial raid by law enforcement. DFW-based filmmaker Robert L. Camina captured the aftermath of the raid in his 2009 full-length documentary Raid of the Rainbow Lounge. Featuring interviews with eyewitnesses, activists, and politicians, the film looks at how the event set into motion a movement that would make Fort Worth, Texas, a leader in LGBT equality. This film is not rated (2009, 103 minutes). Contains mature content; viewer discretion is advised.
