Rachel Griffiths and Mary-Louise Parker to play lesbian couple
Rachel Griffiths and Mary-Louise Parker will play wives in a new mini-series about the LGBT right movement in the US.
When We Rise written by Dustin Lance Back (Milk) tells the story of the key individuals who changed history and fought for LGBT rights in America starting with the 1969 Stonewall Riots.
Mary-Louise Parker will play Roma Guy, who co-founded the San Francisco Women’s Building, and Rachel Griffiths will play her wife, Diane.
US network ABC will screen the seven-episode series which will also be directed by Gus Van Sant.
The miniseries is expected to air in early 2017.
