Okay so here's the deal:
We founded The Gay Dad Project to talk about what it was like to have a gay dad. None of us had ever met any other 'kids' who knew what it was like to have a parent come out, so we wanted to tell our stories in the hopes that we could (and would) find others.
How are we going to do that?
We started by sharing our stories on our webpage (www.gaydadproject.org) but we want to share more of our story. We want to tell it in our own words. We want to dig deeper and go back to explore the places that shaped us. We also want to reach out and find other 'kids' and families like ours. A full-length documentary film will allow us to do all of this and bring visibility to a family type that has not yet been so publicly discussed.
So, what do we need?
Peace. Love. Harmony. Understanding. annnnd of course money.
We need money to get this project off the ground. We want to travel and film on location in each of the different areas and locations we all grew up. We also want to tell the story of other family members and people who live in (cool) faraway places.
This campaign is intened to pay for:
• travel expenses for filming on location
• the film crew
• associated production costs
What will this do?We hope that by sharing our stories and making this movie we can reach others and raise awareness. Raise awareness about gay rights. Raise awareness about a different type of family. And reach out to show other families, like ours, that they are not alone.
Any (and every) contribution makes this project happen so Thank YOU everyone!
