UPDATE: Our Public TV Campaign: We're Halfway There!
A week ago we put out the word that we're on the verge of bringing Inlaws & Outlaws to a much wider audience: public television. The opportunity to bring our true stories to an audience exponentially bigger is simply too big to pass up. So we asked for your help in getting us there and, so far, the response has been tremendous.
We're almost halfway to our goal of raising $50,000 by Sept 30!
That's support, large and small, from over 35 more of our friends and fans, bringing our total raised to $23,825!
One gift that really made a difference came from the The Faygele ben Miriam Fund, our first major underwriter. Given Ben-Miriam's own remarkable story of activism for LGBT equality, we couldn't be more honored to receive the support.
But we still have a way to go before we meet our deadline!
Public TV isn't paid for by ads — and it's free to all viewers. That's why we need underwriting to make this big leap possible. Your support will pay for vital post-production for broadcast, closed captioning, station relations and more. If you haven't contributed, we could really use your help in getting to our goal in less than three weeks.
A gift of any size will make a difference!
Changing Hearts + Minds
"GREAT film changed my stupid mindset." — Stephanie, La Conner WA
"Scott, my husband, and I were so moved. I feel inspired to act in the name of gay marriage and simply to love BIG TIME."
— Amy, Seattle WA
Slowly but surely, the public is coming around to the realization that love is neither gay nor straight; it's human.
But this evolution hasn't happened on it's own. Greater visibility through having our stories told has made all the difference in the world. Time after time we've seen that once people know someone gay — and hear their story — they're far more likely to support equal rights.
And that includes the freedom to marry.
