Connor Franta, Alexis G. Zall, Ben J. Pierce To Appear In YouTube Pride Doc ‘Stonewall Outloud’ (Trailer)

YouTube kicked off Lgbtq+ Pride Month in the throes of an explosive scandal, amid calls to remove right-wing commentator Steven Crowder from its platform, after he was discovered to have extensively harassed Vox journalist Carlos Maza about his sexuality (and also promoted a T-shirt line emblazoned with the slogan ‘Socialism Is For F*gs). YouTube ultimately opted to let Crowder’s channel stand, but apologized to the Lgbtq+ community for the hurtful outcome.

Now, YouTube -- which has long been outspoken in its support for the Lgbtq+ community from a corporate marketing perspective -- has announced a new film produced alongside World Of Wonder (RuPaul’s Drag Race) and storytelling nonprofit StoryCorps titled Stonewall Outloud.

The documentary will chronicle the Stonewall Riots of 50 years ago -- a series of protests in New York against an anti-gay police raid on the Stonewall Inn bar that became a seminal event in the gay rights movement.
