A DEEPER LOVE
The film, "A Deeper Love" is a documentary that seeks to blend reality and traditional documentary forms to tell the story of the evolution of Black LGBT Pride. The film hopes to mobilize viewers as well as raise awareness within the community. This film will not only entertain but help unify the overall gay community and transform individual lives for the better.
Gay pride events are all over the United States - they are a focal point of being able to demonstrate solidarity and commonality for gay men and women. In the film A Deeper Love, the goal of the film is to hold people responsible and accountable for their actions in relation to gay pride events across the county. This means that many of the members of the Black gay community use Pride events as a way to satisfy their sexual urges - but organizers are after a more diverse understanding of the LGBT experience. They offer more programs for the soul at events and it is the responsibility of every member of the community attending these events to take advantage of these events.
A Deeper Love the documentary falls under the banner of the Open Secrets Project produced by A New Take Studios which inspires discussion and action around sexual stigmas and gender issues affecting the Black community, connecting through visual media, education, workshops, advocacy and public forums.
HOW YOU CAN BE PART OF THIS PROJECT?
Simple. You can contribute one or more of the sponsorship levels to be part of the project. Or, another option is that you can contribute one or more of the sponsorship levels – and get on social media or, failing that, the phone – and spread the word to other folks you know in your circles to be part of A Deeper Love and help realize the goal of bringing attention to often overlooked or marginalized people in our society.
If we should happen to exceed our goal, the additional resources will help us make this the best documentary series possible - and to “pay it forward” by providing extra incentives within the community and A New Take Studios’ companion initiative, the Open Secrets Project.
Open Secrets is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non‐profit arts service organization. Contributions for the charitable purposes of “A Deeper Love” must be made payable to “Fractured Atlas” and are 100% tax‐deductible to the extent permitted by law.
