The period piece tells the history of the gay rights movement, starting with the Stonewall Riots in 1969.

Also in the cast are Carrie Preston, Michael Kenneth Williams, Jonathan Majors, and young Broadway talent Emily Skeggs and Austin McKenzie.

Tom Daley & Dustin Lance Black Got Engaged in Their Underwear

Tom Daley gets cozy with Dustin Lance Black on the February 2016 cover of OUT magazine’s annual “Love Issue.”

The 21-year-old Olympic diver and his 41-year-old fiance opened up to the mag about their whirlwind romance and underwear-clad proposal.

Dustin on when they met:Tom had just won an award at some Nickelodeon TV show, and they were planning to celebrate, and I said, ‘I’ve got to go home; I have a script to write.’ And Tom took my phone, and he typed his number in with a winky face.”

Tom on their first date: “We literally spent three or four hours talking about the crap that we’d been through…. It was one of the first times that I felt, ‘Oh my God, this isn’t just a thing where I am attracted to someone. This is someone that I’ve connected with on a whole new level.’”

Tom on the proposal: “I had the ring box in my underwear, and when he came out of the bathroom, I just went down on my knee and proposed. Then he ran off to the bathroom to get his rings, and he had this whole speech prepared, but he’s a writer so his was quite extravagant.”
