Please do not straight-wash the DVD cover of "Pride". It's a heart-warming true story of lesbian and gay people helping Welsh families in the 1984 miners' strike. By photoshopping out all references to gay and lesbian people, you're implying it's something to be ashamed of. And it's rewriting history in a wrongful way.

"Pride" is an award-winning movie - a heartwarming true story of lesbian and gay people helping Welsh families in the 1984 miners' strike. It's being released on DVD in the USA but the distributor photoshopped out all references to gay and lesbian people from the cover.

The blurb now vaguely refers to the film's protagonists as 'London-based activists'. Pretending that the generous folks in the film weren’t gay and lesbian gives the impression it is something to be ashamed of. And it's rewriting history in a wrongful way.

The distributor - CBS Films - said to the press they're looking into the matter now. Will you urge CBS Film to change the DVD cover so it honours the pivotal role that lesbian and gay people played in this story?
