Stonewall: A Film About a Historic Moment of Resistance…That Erases the People Who Were There
There’s a new film coming this fall from Independence Day director Roland Emmerich called Stonewall, about the historic 1969 riots in NYC that were sparked during a police raid on the now-landmark Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village, a gay bar and safe haven for LGBTQ+ folks who had no where else to congregate in peace. It’s a series of events that started the LGBTQ+ Rights movement as we know it today. In light of the historic advancements we’ve made recently in the LGBTQ+ community, it makes sense that a film like this comes out to acknowledge the movement’s history. There’s only one problem – the film doesn’t seem to include many of the people actually involved in that history.
