Nigel Gordon Posted January 6, 2015 Report Share Posted January 6, 2015 It appears that the US distributors of the DVD of Pride, a film about gay activists joining up with Welsh miners during the Miners Strike, have straight washed the DVD cover. The cover image has been photoshopped to remove any references to gay organizations and all mention of gay and lesbians has been removed from the cover blurb. You can find more information out about it at: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-30679455 There is also a petition being raised about it at: go.allout.org/en/a/pride-straightwashed What possible sense can there be in removing all external mention of gays and lesbians from the promotional material when the moment the film starts it is quite clear what it is about, unless they have done a lot of editing, which would destroy a good film.
