Last night, Emmy-winning media company World of Wonder, the creative minds behind RuPaul’s Drag Race, Mapplethorpe: Look at the Pictures, The Eyes of Tammy Faye, and Out of Iraq, premiered their newest documentary Stonewall Outloud at Raleigh Studios in Hollywood. The event was attended by project producers and directors Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato (World of Wonder co-founders); stars featured in the documentary including Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman, Daniel Franzese, Amber Whittington, Isis King, Alexis G. Zall and Laith Ashley, plus special guests Alec Mapa, Billie Lee, Rebecca Black, Chester Lockhart and more. After the star-studded reception and screening, producers and directors spoke to a crowd of 300.
Narrated by RuPaul, Stonewall Outloud is directed and produced by World of Wonder in association with YouTube Originals and Storycorps. In the powerful documentary, contemporary voices in the LGBTQ community lip-synch over recordings of individuals who were actually present at the Stonewall riots, bringing their voices to life for the next generation. Stonewall Outloud premieres to the public June 28th on the World of Wonder YouTube Channel, WOWPresents, and has a one-week theatrical run June 21 – 27, 2019 in Santa Monica.
