RAID OF THE RAINBOW LOUNGE is a feature length 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. The raid occurred on the 40th anniversary of the raid of the Stonewall Inn in New York City, which is regarded by many as the birth of the modern gay rights movement in the United States. Following sordid allegations and outrage, many changes occurred in the city and Fort Worth became 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. The film is narrated by Emmy nominated actress, Meredith Baxter (Family Ties, Family).
