‘Adam is a film that is extremely homophobic, transphobic, and perpetuates rape culture. This film is being marketed as an LGBTQIA film, but it is actually very harmful to the community as it supports many, many homophobic beliefs. This movie and book have harmful themes such as rape culture, the fetishizing of lesbians, predatory behavior, and completely undermines the struggles the trans community faces. This movie is NOT LGBTQIA friendly, it is in fact the opposite due to it's complete lack of understanding LGBTQIA issues as well as sexuality and gender identity as a whole..’

Boycott the transphobic and homophobic ADAM film 2018

In the late 1960s, Elizabeth Coffey-Williams' family kicked her out after she told them that she was transgender — before many knew what that meant. A little brother's embrace welcomed her back.
