In June of 1969, members of the LGBTQIA+ community took to the streets of New York City for six days as a result of the police raid of Stonewall Inn, a gay club in Greenwich Village. Today, June marks the celebration of PRIDE, a time to be proud of one’s truest self. WORLD Channel honors the month with films and specials that recognize what it means to own your identity and find belonging in a community and other features this month rejecting injustices and encouraging inclusiveness for all.
Dennis, Ty and Robert are pioneers in an "out" generation. They are also among the estimated 2.4 million LGBT Americans over the age of 55. "Before You Know It" celebrates the lives of active gay senior citizens who have witnessed unbelievable change in their lifetimes: from the Stonewall Riots to the HIV/AIDS pandemic and gay marriage rights.
