The trailer for Amazon's Hugh Hefner docuseries is here, and it reveals a different side to "Playboy"
Feminism and pornography have a complicated relationship. It can be hard to reconcile what can be seen as women performing and posing for the male gaze, with women having autonomy over their bodies. Which is why, if you’re interested in digging into all that, the trailer for Amazon’s Hugh Hefner docuseries is definitely worth a watch — just like the series, American Playboy: The Hugh Hefner Story, will be when it’s released in full on April 7th.
The trailer offers a glimpse of what viewers are in for: a look at the rise of Playboy, the Playboy Club, and how Hefner was an activist in his own right, standing up for sex positivity, civil rights, women’s rights, and the LGBTQ community.
