In 1991 Puerto Ricans held the first-ever Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender and Transexual Pride march. Eight years later, director Jorge Oliver documented the 1999 Pride March, now an annual event on the island. Together with footage from the festivities are interviews with prominent Puerto Rican activists - including the first openly gay Puerto Rican candidate for the House of Representatives - working for social change. As much a document of the struggle against discrimination and ignorance, Pride in Puerto Rico also celebrates the strength of the community.
