Playing Gay


Text below is pulled from the Kickstarter page:

“Executive Producer Wilson Cruz says: “David Bender’s long history in LGBT and mainstream politics, dating back to the days of Robert Kennedy, and my long history in television and LGBT activism — along with fellow Executive Producer Wendy Abrams and producer David Permut — make us the perfect team to tell this story! Now, all we need is everybody’s help!!””

Please back this project so we can tell this story!

Risks and challenges

“The principal challenge here is the willingness and availability of the potential subjects. To date, we’ve interviewed Michael Douglas, Norman Lear, Martin Sheen, Hal Holbrook, Sheila Kuehl, Wilson Cruz and Dannielle Owens-Reid. We’re interviewing Rachel Maddow very soon, and we have many more exciting artists ready to participate when this campaign succeeds!

We are uniquely positioned to tell this story but we need the funds and resources to collect many more never-before-told stories from these groundbreaking artists in order to preserve the true history of LGBT images on television!”
