“Stonewall” Filmmakers Respond To Uproar Over Their White Cisgender Male Lead – BuzzFeed News:

  1. Good post and stopped by to say hi. If it’s accurate, the trailer, that the first stone won’t be represented with an accurate character to the event, I think it’s doing a disservice to the LGBT community. I don’t know why they’d switch that out.

    Hope you’re doing well.

    Love, Paulette
