Although there’d been a little grumbling about Stonewall ever since the synopsis was released, the upcoming film about the riots that helped spark the moderns gay rights movie walked into a firestorm of controversy when the trailer came out.
It was immediately his with accusations of whitewashing and erasing the importance of trans* people by having the film centred on a young, gay, cisgender white man.
Although director Roland Emmerich and star Jeremy Irvine stepped forward to defend the movie, many still weren’t happy.
However, no one has actually seen the film yet, and to remind those curious about it a new poster has arrived via Out, which seems to deliberately push Irvine to one side and instead give space to people of color and genderqueer characters.
The movie itself reaches US cinemas on September 25th.
