We are disappointed, but not surprised, to learn of the new Hollywood film “Stonewall” whitewashing and trans erasing our queer history. Trans women of colour started Pride. Trans women of colour are all too often written out of our histories and forgotten about by the current gay rights movement that centres and focuses on well off white gay men. While it could have been great to have had our history represented on the big screen, this kind of visibility for the gay community at the expense of the trans community and people of colour is not acceptable.

We encourage and support a boycott of the film.
