Gay references removed from 'Pride' US DVD cover

London: Gay references have been removed from the cover of the US DVD release of British LGBT-related historical comedy-drama film 'Pride'.

The US cover sees some pro-LGBT references erased, reported BBC online. The British comedy drama follows the true story of a group of LGBT protesters who aligned themselves with the miners' union during the 1984-85 strikes.

Whereas the UK release describes the group as a "London-based group of gay and lesbian activists", the US release instead describes them as "London-based activists".

US censors were previously accused of homophobia when 'Pride' was rated R by the Motion Picture Association of America, judging it unsuitable for those under the age of 17 unless accompanied by an adult. The DVD was released by Sony Pictures and CBS Films in the US on December 23.
