Tragedy turned into LGBTQ
23 August 2020 | by kermithhSee all my reviews

I saw this documentary here in Sweden and feel with all my heart about the story of Recy Taylor and also of her family. I just wish it could be devoted to this woman who suffered injustice for her whole life. My sincere love goes out to her and the family and the courage they show to tell their story.

I would have given this a 10 if it wasn't twisted to a sort of LGBTQ tone and actually taken away the respect for the people involved.
