Honored and thrilled to announce that our film has been selected to premiere as the Opening Night Event of the Freep Film Festival, hosted by Detroit Free Press on April 22, 2020 at the The Fillmore Detroit!

Even though we’re running on fumes, the light at the end of the tunnel is real, and it’s getting brighter. These next weeks will be intense, and we'll be sharing that process here.

Thank you all for your support, attention, and years of patience!
We'll be reaching out individually to our extended crew, donors, 

and interviewees with more info...

Project Update 1/15/2020

We're getting close, but it's not over yet.

 Still in progress are the following: 

  • Completion of  Animation, Motion Graphics, and Color Timing.
  • Final Sound Design sessions.
  • Licensing and Archival costs 
  • Marketing and Communication

We ask that if you believe in the causes my brother Jeffrey fought for, the complete civil rights of every LBGTQ citizen, that you consider donating to our final funding effort by going to our donation link below.

The current state of political and social backlash LBGTQ citizens are faced with today make this project more relevant and important than ever.

As we have mentioned it is our hope that this documentary will inspire young activists out there, and bring others into the fight for LBGTQ civil rights. One of the many things Jeffrey believed in was that each of us has the power to create change.

With thanks, 

John Montgomery, Producer
