Stonewall Movie

30 Sep

I just went and saw the Stonewall movie in the theaters, I guess it had some criticism because the person who threw the first brick was a white young man, and that’s probably not really what happened.  And the main character wasn’t played by a gay actor.  But I liked the movie, I think it’s an accomplishment to tell some of Gay history in a movie that is playing in main stream cinema and not just an LGBT film festival showing.  I know we still have places to go and hollywood “Hollywoodized” it but that’s kinda what they do.  I told my sister I was going to the movies and then had to tell her what Stonewall was, and honestly before getting involved with the gay community and gay culture I didn’t know what it was.  We have LGBT Pride month now but I wonder about an LGBT History month.  There is so much the main stream doesn’t know and heck a lot of what I don’t know as a young gay adult.  I think it’s important not to lose are history and the struggles we have overcome especially as we are focusing on achievements like gay marriage being legalized.
