"The Stonewall You Know Is a Myth": New York Times short film




The Stonewall You Know Is a Myth, and That’s OK”, is a short film from the New York Times, produced and directed by “Shane”.
 
The film looks at the gay rights movement back to 1897 and reports it as more substantial than we realize. 

Marsha P. Johnson didn’t throw the first bottle (or brick), nor did Sylvia Rivera.

There was also a story that it was prepped by the death of Judy Garland.

The film maintains that truth in the narrative of a historical event is important for its own sake.
