"By The People" shows what happens when an otherwise-marginalized & often-silenced sub-community within the larger LGBTQ+ community comes together &, via preservation of their community's names, histories, documents, & artifacts, brings itself an enhanced visibility that, ultimately, fights against sex & sexuality social stigma, celebrates authenticity & consent, & demands that sex & sexuality be treated as valid topics that requires academic study.

STARRING: Chuck Renslow, Gayle Rubin, Rick Storer, Jakob VanLammeren, Chris Zimmerman Law, Tony DeBlase.
