I thought it was about time I give you an update on my upcoming documentary ‘Love Like Yours’ I won’t lie it has been pretty exciting times as of late, and the support that people have shown the film has been overwhelming. So lets start with a little about the film.
“Love is like perfection, it comes in many different forms.”
While some countries are making progressive steps forward in providing equal rights for members of LGBTI community, Australia seems to be falling behind.
‘Love Like Yours.’ is the story of Brisbane gay rights activist and film-maker Chad St. James challenging the current Australian legislation with the hope to bring awareness to the the daily discrimination faced by members of the LGBTI community on a daily basis for simply being who they are.
Featuring interviews from everyday people affected by governmental endorsed discrimination such as the Bradfield Siblings and Rachel Gilmmore,prominent figures in the LGBTI equal rights movement such as Shelley Argent (PFLAG) Michael James, Jessica Payne and Kat Henderson (Equal Love), celebrities such as electro pop sensation Luciana and a few more to be confirmed; Expect happiness, tears, laughter, hope and a take on the Australian Marriage Act that no-one saw coming!
The pozible campaign has 22 days left and so far there has been $2,618 in pledges leaving just $1,382 to be pledged by the deadline. I won’t lie. I’m all kinds of nervous, but I know together we can make it. So if you can spare a little please go to www.pozible.com/lovelikeyours and pledge away.
Also on some other exciting news, Brisbane-based tea brand Slurp has launched its first campaign for 2013, titled “EqualiTEA” to show their support for Marriage Equality. 100% of the profits will be donated to the Queensland Association for Healthy Communities (www.qahc.org.au) and to help fund ‘Love Like Yours.’ Needless to say I’m eternally grateful to Matthew Hynd for getting behind the film, not to mention the attention this will get the film.
While I’ve already been busy filming, the next few months are about to get hectic busy. I’m all kinds of excited and nervous at the same time, but I know in the long run it will have all been worth it.
So I guess, watch this space. lol
There’s some pretty exciting things happening over the next few months and will definitely be worth checking out.
