This sneak peek of LGBTQ rights miniseries ‘When We Rise’ will give you shivers

ABC has released a first look at its star-studded miniseries for February 2017 that traces the history of the LGBTQ rights movement, beginning with the Stonewall riots in 1969.

It’s penned by Academy Award winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black (Milk) and executive produced by Gus Van Sant, who directed the two hour opener. The cast includes Guy Pearce, David Hyde Pierce, Mary-Louise Parker, Charlie Carver, Whoopi Goldberg, Alexandra Grey, Michael Kenneth Williams, Rachel Griffiths and an almost unrecognizable Rosie O’Donnell.

“It’s been the honor of my life to research and craft these stories of family, diversity and equality over the past three years,” Black said in a statement, reported by NewNowNext. “To have collaborators of this caliber sign on to help bring these stories to life is a tremendous vote of confidence, and I hope a testament to the relevancy and necessity of our continued march toward justice for all.”
