Story: Riot starts in the late 1970s in Australia homosexual relationships are still illegal. However, Lance Gowland (Herriman) joins forces with other homosexuals to challenge the law. Marg McMann (Box), Jim Walker (Samuel) and Robyn Plaister (De Gouw) are among the others in the group.

This leads to the first series of protests against the people who refuse to let them have their own lives. However, the battle becomes difficult as they find themselves dealing with attacks to keep them down.

Verdict on Riot

Riot is a drama following a group of homosexuals who lead a campaign to make gay marriage legal in Australia. They face discrimination while they push for the winning vote. However, they must overcome other things to achieve what needs to change.

This is a drama that shows the importance of people fighting for the chance had. It shows how much they had to overcome to fight for something that should always have been equal. The challenges are the same as many other countries. This does hold it back from being anything different than any of the others we have seen before. We get strong performances from everyone involved.

Final ThoughtsRiot shows an important change that came to Australia.
