Synopsis:

Cured chronicles the strategy and tactics that led to a crucial victory in the movement for LGBT rights. Following the Stonewall Rebellion of 1969, the battle that culminated in the American Psychiatric Association’s (APA) decision marked the first major step on the path to first-class citizenship for LGBT Americans.  

Sensitive Content Warning: Some disturbing historical footage of shock treatments and other abuse towards the LGBTQ community.
