The leaders of the LGBT community are never ever fully satisfied, even when film directors decide to take on a subject that highlights the rise of the gay movement.

As Breitbart reports, top gay activists are boycotting the gayest movie of the year because it’s apparently not true enough, or something like that.
An LGBT advocacy organization has called for a boycott of the upcoming gay rights historical drama Stonewall for featuring a fictional young, white male as its protagonist.
Roland Emmerich’s Stonewall, set for release this Friday, September 25, centers on the 1969 riots at the Stonewall Inn in New York City that sparked the beginning of the gay rights movement.
But a number of LGBT advocates have blasted Emmerich and screenwriter Jon Robin Baitz, both gay themselves, who chose to tell the story through the eyes of the fictional character Danny Winters (Jeremy Irvine), a young, gay white male from the Midwest who becomes a part of the movement when he visits the Inn.
“It’s not just a little bit inaccurate, it’s a lot,” BiNet USA president Faith Cheltenham told the Wrap of the controversial film. “Fiction still has a responsibility. Filmmakers have a responsibility to not re-create history, to not take someone else’s history and turn it into their own. That’s an affront to civility, really. And it’s theft. It’s the wholesale appropriation of a group of people that were there.”
See, it really is impossible to please the gay community. They’ll forever whine about something.
