In order to make a movie more palatable to the public, Hollywood often glosses over or contradicts key historical elements. In this short video The Real Queens and Kings of Stonewall, Matt Baume provides a reality check regarding the commercially released Hollywood version of the riots: Stonewall.
And here are some more voices of actual participants in the groundbreaking historic Stonewall riot: Stonewall Veterans Talk About the Night That Changed The World – Stonewall: Profiles of Pride.
Since our platform is about expressing ideas and ideals instead of cash flow, clicks, or fundraising, we have the freedom to include a wide range of topics and formats that might not work elsewhere. We don’t need or want paid content, promotional materials, or story lines designed to please donors.
So the idea here is to present videos one or more of the editors feel speaks to them. Sometimes it will be news. Sometimes it will be history. And a lot of the time it will be culture. You can not and should not separate these things: it is diversity and intersectionality that makes our movement strong.
