Roland Emmerich Directs New Film About Stonewall Riots



The Director of "Stargate" and "Independence is releasing a new film about the Stonewall riots called Stonewall.

From the youtube clip:

STONEWALL is a drama about a fictional young man caught up during the 1969 Stonewall Riots. Danny Winters (Jeremy Irvine) is forced to leave behind friends and loved ones when he is kicked out of his parent’s home and flees to New York. Alone in Greenwich Village, homeless and destitute, he befriends a group of street kids who soon introduce him to the local watering hole The Stonewall Inn; however, this shady, mafia-run club is far from a safe-haven. As Danny and his friends experience discrimination, endure atrocities and are repeatedly harassed by the police, we see a rage begin to build. This emotion runs through Danny and the entire community of young gays, lesbians and drag queens who populate the Stonewall Inn and erupts in a storm of anger. With the toss of a single brick, a riot ensues and a crusade for equality is born.

Thanks to Out Magazine for bringing this beautiful book to our attention. An historical look at body builders from 1895-1975. This international pictorial celebrates the male physique. It definitely gets a "hooray!" from me!
