Film Set About the Bi Boxer Killing Homophobic Opponent


Hornet reports:

In 2018, director Lenny Abrahamson and producer Ed Guiney will make a movie about Emile Griffith, a bisexual boxer who killed his homophobic competitor in an infamous 1962 match. The Emile Griffith film will likely come out in late 2018 or sometime in 2019.

On March 24, 1962, openly bisexual American boxer Emile Griffith fought Cuban fighter Benny “The Kid” Paret at Madison Square Garden in a match televised by ABC. During the weigh-in for the fight, Paret allegedly did a mincing walk towards Griffith, touched his butt and called him a maric√≥n — a Spanish slur roughly meaning “faggot.” Griffith reportedly had to be restrained from attacking him on the spot.

Though his sexuality wasn’t entirely a secret, the press and Griffith’s then girlfriend were both present at the weigh-in and not entirely aware of his sexuality. In 1962, having sex with someone of the same-gender could land you in prison, get you outed in newspapers and effectively kill your career.
