Equal 2020 / Though it could’ve been smoother, this docuseries turns the spotlight on urgent, overlooked lessons on queer history


When history shoves you in the corner and current generations start to forget their roots, it makes sense to take up an urgent if frantic tone. That’s what the showrunners of Equal have done here. Scenes are packed with busy animation, star-studded reenactments, and paragraphs of history lessons (sometimes all at once), so much so that it can be hard to keep up at times. I would’ve preferred a slower pace to let the important events have their moment, but the quickness makes sense and ultimately makes for an educational and important watch.
