The cast of HBO Max’s Equal, the upcoming four-part docuseries about the history of the LGBTQ civil rights movement is stellar.
Along with never-before-seen archival footage, Anthony Rapp, Samira Wiley, Sara Gilbert, Cheyenne Jackson, Alexandra Grey, Jamie Clayton, Sam Pancake, Jai Rodriguez, Theo Germaine and Shannon Purser are just some of the nearly two dozen names who portray real gay rights activists from the turn of the century to the 70s following the Stonewall Riots.
Produced by Scout Productions (“Queer Eye”), Greg Berlanti’s Berlanti Productions and Jim Parsons and Todd Spiewak’s That’s Wonderful Productions, the series is directed by Stephen Kijak (Sid & Judy) and trans director Kimberly Reed (Prodigal Sons).
Equal will premiere on HBO Max in October in recognition of LGBTQ History Month.
