When We Rise is a LGBTQI drama miniseries that aired on ABC.

It chronicles the real-life personal and political struggles, set-backs and triumphs of a diverse family of LGBTQI men and women who helped pioneer one of the last legs of the U.S. Civil Rights movement from its turbulent infancy in the 20th century to the once unfathomable successes of today.
