Queer Silicon Valley

Episode 1 of 1

Silicon Valley, known as the high tech capital of the world, has had a profound impact on the LGBTQ+ movement in the United States. In Queer Silicon Valley, a new one hour documentary from Bob Gliner (We're Still Here, Schools That Change Communities, Walk the Walk) and Ken Yeager, the rich history of the LGBTQ+ Community's challenges and successes in Silicon Valley is traced through an ethnically diverse range of voices. From its early beginnings in a 1970s vibrant bar scene through the challenges posed by AIDS and the religious right, the fight for political representation and marriage equality, to what it was like to come out in the high tech industry, Queer Silicon Valley casts a fresh lens on a not well known but significant history.
