Synopsis by Clarke Fountain

In this 1987 documentary, the issue before the New York City Council is a resolution concerning gay rights. The voices of citizens and witnesses for and against this resolution are heard as they testify, and in interviews in the council chamber and on the sidewalk outside. Advocates on either side of the issue are shown to be earnest and sincere, and despite the fact that emotions are running high during the debate, basic civility somehow prevails.
