If you think this film can get made without your support, think again.
Why is it important to support this documentary film?
Until LGBTQ history is taught in schools and in the history books that schools use, we rely on documentaries and all forms of art, literature & media by and about LGBTQ people. It is crucial to preserve and tell LGBTQ history from an LGBTQ point of view as diverse as it is; otherwise it will all be forgotten or told by others with outsider perspectives and/or agendas. Time forgets so quickly and then poof, we disappear and so does our place in history, unless you act now.

YOUR SUPPORT WILL FUND THE FOLLOWING
1. Film Shoot: Interviews, supplementary scenes and titles. There are crews and creative personnel, equipment, meals, locations, transportation costs, accommodations (out-of-town shoots) and fees. A lot has been donated in this category (like MAC Cosmetics providing makeup artists for our shoot, and others who’ve donated frequent flyer miles, accommodations, & locations), but not everything, for which we need your additional funding.
2. Rights Clearances (music, images & footage): We CANNOT make the film without this, and it’s the most expensive part of the film’s production. This is an area where the waiving of fees is not possible and non-negotiable. It is important for this film to have the dignity that women deserve, which means we need archivals and music that are iconic. We are not looking at excessive usage and will be creative and resourceful in this area, but there are some things we just can’t get around. And we refuse to be relegated to the fringes… this film deserves to look great and deserves a killer soundtrack.
3. Film Score: MESHELL NDEGEOCELLO is scoring our film. We are so humbled to have a 10x Grammy-nominated artist donate her talent and time in support of this project. But there are engineers, studio musicians and studio space involved, in addition to transportation, possibly accommodations, meals and incidentals. Fees are vastly reduced, but ultimately there are still some costs involved.
4. Post-production: A high-end commercial post-production house has donated their services, but there are relatively minimal fees for post/editing artists/technicians and meals, plus media drives and other equipment that need to be outright purchased. We are saving tens of thousands of dollars as a result of the donation, but costs are still in the thousands.
5. Audio Mix: We are still looking for donated services, but for now we need to raise funds for ALL fees connected to audio post and incidentals connected to that.
THESE OBJECTIVES ARE INSTRUMENTAL FOR OUR FILM.
