There’s a great project on kickstarter right now, a movie documenting the story of gay marriage across America. I’d really like to see this happen, so I’m trying to spread the word. Please donate, or if you can’t, please reblog. Thank you!
Now is the time for a feature length film documenting the story of gay marriage across America. Such a film has not been made because gay marriages have not been performed on a wide scale before. But something is changing, and I want to tell the remarkable story of this change, in real time, as it’s happening.
In years to come, the couples, the judges, all the people involved in this change will be our heroes. A documentary film based on the unfolding events of 2014 will connect us to these heroes and to our shared humanity.
A culture is made up of stories passed from one generation to the next. The foundation of the way we define our lives is expressed through stories told in movies, social media, news media, and books written at a given time in history. It’s time to make a change in the stories we’ve passed on about the LGBT community.
The trend in our culture has been to portray our LGBT neighbors as misfits, always on the outskirts of normal society, often so eccentric that we are unable to relate. Rarely do you see a movie featuring gay couples sharing a simple kiss, holding hands, or looking at each other with expressions of everyday love— these simple actions are the foundation of everyone’s love story. They make art art and love love— your love and my love. I want to make a documentary film about these everyday, extraordinary stories that make us all the same.
