Filmmaker Seeks LGBT Folks To Share Stories For Upcoming PBS Documentary
We recently received a request from a NYC-based filmmaker who is seeking interesting stories from "a cross-section of the American LGBT population."
A producer from the team says:
"We’ll be interviewing (people) who have incredible, personal stories to tell about their own experience – be it coming out, relationships, family, discrimination, achievement, activism, marriage, surprising moments of tolerance/intolerance, fun times, all of the above, or none of the above. And our subjects will be from all walks of life: couples, families, singles, cowboys, Democrats, Republicans, playwrights, people of all ages, races, faiths…you name it. We seek diversity and personal expression. This is not a political film although it will not shy away at all from frank discussion about important issues. Above all, it will be a celebration of the LGBT community in America."
In addition to collecting stories from individual subjects, the crew would also love to document a wedding, as a "perfect illustration of a celebration (which is why they came to us!). If you will be getting married this summer on the East Coast and would like to nominate your wedding for consideration, please drop us a line and let us know and we'll put you in touch with the producer.
The film, OUT IN AMERICA, once complete, is likely to air in June 2011.
