SACRAMENTO– The film weaves together stories of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer/Questioning (LGBTQ) trailblazers who sought to claim basic civil rights and build a Sacramento region enriched by their contributions. The saga of Ms. Metrailer’s contributions includes a successful lawsuit against Reverend Jerry Falwell (1986) and class action sex discrimination suit against McClellan Air Force Base (1988) on behalf of women employees.
