One of our favorite forms of critique is through comedy -- and this parody video does a perfect job of it.
Recently the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community has been up in arms about the trailer for the upcoming film "Stonewall," in theaters on September 25.
Some activists claim that, based on the trailer, the film appears to "whitewash" the historic Stonewall narrative and erase the drag queens, transgender individuals and people of color who were so crucial in inciting and carrying out the iconic riots.
While not all leaders of the LGBT community agree with this sentiment, it has generated an important conversation about representation and what happens when our stories move from the margins to the mainstream.
In response to the controversy, the hilarious parody above tackles the film's trailer head on and provides some important comedic context to this debate. Not only does the clip, which begins by noting that it has been "approved for white middle class audiences," offer commentary about the identities represented, but it mashes up the reel with some clips from director Roland Emmerich's other blockbuster smash hits like "Day After Tomorrow" and "Godzilla."
