WHY we need to ACT NOW
We are at a vital turning point in this country. Proposition 8, a California ballot prop. passed in the November 4, 2008, general election.
This is a clear indication that there is still a lot of work to be done to ensure full civil rights to the gay community. Education is ONE of the answers.
Cultures on Film is forming a group of dedicated and creative people to produce educational material/media about gay culture. More than ever we need to reach out to the straight community and inform them about our contributions and presence in the society. The truth is, “We are as old as humanity itself.”
The history of gay people is filled with abuse, prejudice, pain and death. We have an opportunity to change that now. We must not let this opportunity go by.
How can we erase over 2000 years of condemnation, lies and hatred directed at us? By starting the education process on a large scale, right now. Especially for young people. (Please read the attached proposal/mission statement). CLICK
We will produce all programs under the umbrella of our non profit company Cultures on Film. It is vital that we begin to raise money and support so we can start this process NOW.
We have the technical resources, we need your creative brain, passion and kind heart to move forward.
Please become part of our creative group, and recommend anyone else you think would be interested. Together we can really make a difference; educating the American people about our rights to exist as full citizens. The gay community must demand respect from a society which is blinded by bigotry and ignorance.
The time is now, please help us to SEIZE THE TIME!

CA court upholds same-sex marriage ban
By TED JOHNSON
… it is "important that we look at where our money is going" to ensure that sufficient effort is being made to connect with voters via grassroots outreach and education to religious groups and seniors. There was not nearly enough of that in the fight over Proposition 8. If we reach out to them, share our personal stories, educate them, come out to them, that is how minds are changed."
Dustin Lance Black
"I think we spent a lot of time speaking to ourselves. I think the message of today's decision is: we have to tone down the rhetoric and start building some bridges. A greater effort should be deployed to reach Christian groups, Latinos and African-Americans in a really smart, targeted campaign."
"I am confident that gay marriage will pass, and we will have it in my lifetime, but we just have to understand that we have to educate people and we have to put a face on this."
Howard Bragman, Publicist
Ted Olson and David Boies, the famed litigators who found themselves on the opposite sides of the Bush vs. Gore recount in 2000, plan to announce a federal lawsuit on Wednesday that seeks to overturn "Prop. 8" on the grounds that it violates U.S. constitutional guarantees of due process and equal protection.

We are coming to DC this October 10-11 to demand equal protection in all matters governed by civil law in all 50 states. Now.
On Tuesday morning, September 15, Representative Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) introduced a bill in Congress to repeal the so-called "Defense of Marriage Act." This is an important step forward, but we must continue to demand full equality.
