This television special is produced as a companion piece to the television miniseries When We Rise, which documents LGBT advocacy centered in San Francisco from 1972 to 2015. This special tells the stories of the real life people portrayed as the main characters in the miniseries - including Cleve Jones, Roma Guy, Diane Jones, Ken Jones, and Cecilia Chung - focusing primarily on their advocacy work. These stories are told from the perspective of historians, Dustin Lance Black as the primary creative force behind the miniseries, these five advocates, and one other directly involved in their stories, namely Diane's "turkey baster" daughter Annie Jupiter-Jones.
