Stonewall
Love him or hate him, director Roland Emmerich has certainly made an impression with Stonewall, a heavily fictionalized retelling of the birth of the modern LGBT rights movement that's been heavily criticized for whitewashing history. The plot focuses on a fictional character, Danny Winters, who, after being kicked out of his Indiana home for being gay, befriends a group of LGBT people in New York. Along the way, arrests are made. Riots ensue. See the movie and judge for yourself.

David Lagercrantz, The Girl in the Spider's Web
Stieg Larsson, the acclaimed author of the Millennium trilogy kicked off by the best-selling The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, may have died, but his legacy lives on with The Girl in the Spider's Web, a fourth installment in the series about bisexual hacker Lisbeth Salander and her partner in crime, the journalist Mikael Blomkvist. The announcement of the book, which is written by David Lagercrantz, generated some controversy, as there is a dispute between Larsson's family and his longtime girlfriend about the decision to continue the series. But many have praised Spider's Web for emulating Larsson's ability to create a thrilling page-turner, which in this case delves into the net of cybercrime. Buy it now in bookstores everywhere.
