Trailer Release: Help Bring our Supergay Journey to the Big Screen
Our journey did not end with the last plane ride home from Lima to San Francisco. For the past eight months, Lisa and I have been working to finish the project we started when we decided to leave our 9-5 jobs, pick up a video camera, and travel through Asia, Africa and South America in search of the people who are leading the movement for gay, lesbian and transgender equality.
After bringing our project to many different filmmakers, we decided to partner with producer and director Lauren Fash and Susan Graham. Once you watch their award-winning film Quiet and hear their passion about human rights, you’d understand why we felt they were the right people to take our ‘baby’ and bring it to life.
Today, we are releasing the trailer of our film and kicking off a $30,000 fundraising campaign to pay for post-production costs. Could you give me a couple minutes of your time to be a part of this project that we feel so passionately about? Here’s what you can do:
1) Watch the 2-min video trailer of our film.
2) If you are moved by this story, consider giving your financial support and earn some Out & Around swag. If you’ve already donated, thank you thank you thank you!
3) Tell your friends about us: Like our Kickstarter site on your Facebook page and share a message about this project to your network. We really could use your help to spread the word.
With this film, we have an opportunity to tell a very personal story about what is happening in the gay rights movement around the world. But this story isn’t just about the gays – this story is about the right to find respect, acceptance and love for any person who has ever faced intolerance for being who they are.
Thank you so much for following our journey around the world and for your incredible support through these past two years. Let’s bring the Supergay story to life and make a difference in the global movement for equality.
