Accept “Except” LGBT NY

ACCEPT “EXCEPT” LGBT NY is about the struggle for justice in America from slavery to modern day Gay Rights. It tells the story of two twenty-year olds brought together after being chased by angry mobs: a male from the plantation era (18th Century) and a female from the penitentiary era (21st Century). In December of 1865, the 13th Amendment transferred ownership of slaves and involuntary servants from private owners to government entities – from plantations to penitentiaries. The Accept “Except” series: Male, Female, LGBT and others, explores this one exception of the 13th Amendment.
