The Queer Nineties brings to completion Nancy Nicol's award-winning series on the history of lesbian and gay rights in Canada, which has been 10 years in the making and has covered 40 years of history. This bookend documentary brings together the most influential voices of the struggle for equal rights, giving precedence to human rights activists as well as to pioneering lawyers. The work also addresses the issue of censorship at the Surrey School Board, which in 1997 banned three children's books that depicted same-sex parents. The roles of ethno-cultural communities and the labour movement in the advancement of LGBT rights across the country contribute to the documentary's comprehensive view of the decade that gave us many of the freedoms we enjoy today.
