I had the awesome opportunity to speak to Paul Hancock, the CEO of World Wide Motion Pictures about the current state of foreign and independent film funding. He also introduced their latest project coming to San Francisco : "Applause." We'll be there to catch the movie starting April 13, 2012 at the Lumiere.

For anyone in the SF area, join me this Monday February 6, 2012 at the Castro theatre to view "The Right to Love," a powerful and moving story about a gay couple and their loving children during the Proposition 8 trials. The director, Cassie Jaye, talks about her experiences during Prop 8, with an evangelical background in mind. Tune in this weekend to hear the interview or get down to the Castro theatre to check out the movie.

Ella Masar recently posted a blog about her experiences with the magicJack club and owner Dan Borislow. It's now pretty. Click here.
In a recent article with the New York Times, Cynthia Nixon pretty much says being gay was her choice. I say HER not A choice as most LGBT media outlets are covering. Everyone is having an opinion about how she responded. Must we all label ourselves correctly? Did Cynthia Nixon nix the LGBT community in her response?
I have a lot of things to say about…Continue

Today's session with Uptake (www.theuptake.org), was about creative ways to use your smartphone (Iphone and Androids are best) to capture news and create breaking news through it.
It was the best session so far at Netroots for me because the three guys presenting gave succinct information and even showed up sites where to download the free apps to create editable footage. I'll post here at a later date after they email me the details for…Continue

There was an explosive panel yesterday that included 4 panelists who are receiving awards for the Freedom from Fear Award. The four (Felipe, Reyna, Juan, and Tania) spoke about their personal experiences.
This was a much needed topic to discuss since immigration and bi national couples exist within the LGBT community. I can't imagine being ripped apart from the person you love because you don't have the same rights as heterosexual people here in the states. Most importantly,…Continue

I had the awesome opportunity to attend a panel of brilliant minds such as Eden James of Change.org, but formely of Courage Compaign. We had a break out session during the LGBT pre-conference of Netroots Nation that addressed the issue of Bloggers and how they can be well sustained in their craft as well as being well funded.
Eden started the panel with the suggestion the non-profits should create an endowment or a fund to support these bloggers. Jillian Weiss responded that…Continue

We'll be interviewing Exodus International next week about the Iphone application that Apple removed after lots of pressure from Change.org and Truth Wins Out. While I do believe that there are harmful effects of trying to reverse one's sexuality or forcing someone to believe something they don't, I have to say that I need to keep a diverse outlook on the situation. Exodus International clearly states they help those who do not "want" homosexuality. There are a lot of Christian friends and…Continue
