Covering a period of over 100 years, Making Progress explores gay and lesbian history through 12 plays. Starting from the isolation of hidden romances kept secret behind closed doors and revealed only in diaries and carefully worded letters; to the great migration towards the big cities during war times where gay communities began to form; battling Hollywood’s fantasy of America; fighting the anti-gay military policy and unjust legal ramifications; bursting forth with the sexual revolution and facing the onslaught of the AIDS epidemic; finding acceptance, but still battling for equal rights such as same sex marriage and the repeal of sodomy laws—Making Progress celebrates the gay men and women who created the modern gay community.
