RAID OF THE RAINBOW LOUNGE is a 103 minute documentary recounting the widely publicized and controversial 2009 police raid of a Fort Worth, Texas gay bar that resulted in multiple arrests and serious injuries.
Following sordid allegations and outrage, many changes would occur in the city, and Fort Worth would become a leader in LGBT equality. However, the changes did not happen overnight and without controversy. The audience will witness history unfold as this film documents that journey from the perspective of witnesses, activists and politicians who helped changed the city.
Narrated by television icon, Emmy nominated actress, and author, Meredith Baxter (Family Ties, Family, Bridget Loves Bernie).
Written, Directed and Produced by Robert L. Camina.
