Want to help make a film happen?

I fully support independent filmmaking as a powerful tool in telling LGBTQ stories and I’m happy to sign on as a supporter of this film. With a little over a week to go, the film needs your help to meet the fundraising goal.

The Q is for QUEER!

The Q is for QUEER!

I generally use the abbreviation LGBTQ instead of LGBT or GLBT or Gay. For me, the Q matters. If you aren’t using it, you are probably stuck in an outdated framework and understanding of our rainbow collective of communities.

Seeing, listening, and sharing our stories is one path towards that end.

ReelQ: Best Film to See for National Coming Out Day

While Marriage Equality news overflows these days taking most of our attention, gay, lesbian, bi, trans, queer, and lied supporters must remain focused on striving for full equality, and to do that, we need to better explore how we support our youth as they grapple with their sexual orientation and gender identity and come out.

A Gay Man Sees Walldogs

A Gay Man Sees Walldogs

In a very real way, the performance is about five- or an infinite number of stories- rather than the four listed, and the audience becomes the performers. I marveled at watching the performance viewers become creators, printing and coloring as they enjoyed some food, drink and company

Broadway Bares and remembering “J.”

I hope we never stop celebrating youth, vitality, the male body, and being gay! I hope however, we couple this celebration of youth and beauty with a reminder to care about and remain connected to all of our community including those entering their senior years.
