Synopsis
Exploring the complicated influence of American history on the gay and lesbian community today. Centering on the experience of seventeen-year-old Kelli Peterson, who attempted to form a Gay-Straight Alliance at her Salt Lake City high school in 1997. Her efforts were suppressed by her community and, ultimately the Utah State Legislature, which went so far as to pass a law banning all extra-curricular clubs in order to prevent the Gay-Straight Alliance from convening.
