FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
HISTORY OF STONEWALL, THE GAY PRIDE MOVEMENT COMIC BOOK COMES OUT THIS WEEK
Bluewater Productions is releasing a new comic book biography this week on the history of the gay pride movement called The Stonewall Riots.
In June of 1969, police raided a gay bar in Greenwich Village, New York called The Stonewall. This is historically agreed as the catalyst to set forth the gay rights movement. Facing persecution, prosecution and a violation of their civil rights, the homosexual community was mad as hell and they weren’t going to take it any more. The events at Stonewall lead to riots and demonstrations to open the dialogue and fight for the basic human rights of the homosexual community.
Bluewater Productions is proud to present Stonewall, a detailed account of movement that started with Stonewall and continues to this day with the gay community celebrating gay pride each year to commemorate the brave efforts of the community. The 32-page comic book is written by Michael Troy and illustrated by David T. Cabrera.
“As time goes on, we’re in danger of losing this important touchstone of our cultural history. In an age where gay rights and marriage equality are still such hot buttons, it’s more important now more than ever, to remember the efforts of those who fought for gay rights’, says writer Michael Troy.
“This comic book was funded by the supporters of our crowd sourcing campaign and we could not be thankful enough to have their support to make this book a reality”, said publisher Darren G. Davis. “We wanted to make a difference with this unique comic book medium and I could not be more proud of this book. It was also great to get the support of the actual Stonewall Inn”.
Several of the company’s popular biography comic books feature openly gay subjects such as RuPaul, Ellen DeGeneres, Rosie O’Donnell and Anderson Cooper.
But more importantly, Bluewater was one of the first comic book publishing companies to breach the subject of HIV with their action-adventure fiction title Lost Raven. The main character learns he has been infected with the HIV virus and embarks on an odyssey of self-discovery. Lost Raven was awarded The Independent Book Publishers”, graphic novel of the year in 2009.
