Activists Call For ‘Stonewall’ Movie Boycott

Thousands of LGBT activists are calling for a boycott of the film “Stonewall” because the main character is a white gay man and many of the key players have been left out.

Where is Stormé DeLarverie, who is known as the butch lesbian who threw the first punch at the police during the riot? Where is bisexual activist Brenda Howard, who organized the first-ever Pride parade?

How about Marsha P Johnson, a transgender women, she was there with Sylvia Rivera, a non binary drag queen.

Activists are upset the main character is a while male and that is not how many in the LGBT community remember things happening.
