As queer/LGBT people of color and our allies, we are BOYCOTTING Roland Emmerich's Stonewall movie for erasing the contributions of of-color queer and gender non-conforming activists.
Hollywood has a long history of white-washing and crafting White Savior narratives, but this is one step too far. A historically accurate film about the Stonewall Riots would center the stories of queer and gender-nonconforming people of color like Sylvia Rivera and Marsha P. Johnson. Not relegate them to background characters in the service of a white cis-male fictional protagonist.
