"Prejudice and Pride" Documentary on the Up Stairs Lounge Arson and its aftermath

"Prejudice and Pride" recounts the Up Stairs Lounge fire and the aftermath that swept through New Orleans via new interviews with survivors, first responders, activists, journalists and family members of the dead. "The ABC News investigative team uncovers yet another tragedy - a victim and World War II veteran stripped of all dignity, discarded in an unmarked grave on the fringe of the city. On the trail to uncover his whereabouts, 'Prejudice and Pride' journeys from the heart of New Orleans' French Quarter to its desolate outskirts. Can his family find him and the closure they seek? And will the UpStairs Lounge fire finally take its rightful place in gay rights' history?"
