Season 2 picks up in 1954, right where we left off. (But you don’t need to hear season 1 to follow along.) A secret organization of lesbians forms under the FBI's watchful eye as the national Mattachine Society crumbles. A political revolution is launched by a drag queen. Police raid gay spaces and street queens fight back.
The conservative gays who commandeered the movement in Season 1 push against the queers who don't conform to suits and skirts. The masks come off and a militant minority is rising.
Mattachine: A Queer Serial is told in serialized episodes.
Created by Devlyn Camp.
