The Start of a New Documentary: “Through Gay Eyes”

For the past month, I have worked with Deb Fowler (the producer of Hard Truth, Levity and Hope) to start planning for a new documentary: Through Gay Eyes.

“Through Gay Eyes” is a film project that gives a voice — a veritable revelation — to the embedded furtive lifestyle of gays.  This documentary film will encompass personal stories that tap every realm of life and social context.  ”Through Gay Eyes” extends beyond “coming out” stories and delivers a profound realization that there still exists a silent and stifling vein in our society.  Gay partners, parents and individuals tell their stories and rip the veil – emblazoning a promise toward our perpetual path of the Civil Rights Movement.  “Through Gay Eyes” wrestles with poignant and consuming questions that affect every member of society — bringing forth the invisible into a tangible piece of reality.

As I learned with Reality Check, films cost a lot of money to make. Since our goal with Through Gay Eyes is to present this to the largest audience possible, we need to make sure this is the best it can be. We have set up a Kickstarter campaign for just over $5,000 which will cover the cost for “production.” Production includes things like:

  • Buying and renting cameras, lights, audio equipment, etc.
  • Interviewing participants from across the United States.
  • Advertising on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media to spread the word.
  • And more.

If we reach our fundraising goal, the next step is to begin interviewing men and women of all ages in the gay community to hear their story. Once finished, we will move on to post-production which includes editing the interviews and forming a story, color grading, music composition, audio mixing, film festivals, and more.

So, we need your help. Please donate as much as you can to our Kickstarter campaign. If you can’t donate, you can still be a big help.
