I stopped being an LGBT activist not because my beliefs changed, but for the same reason that someone who's worked at an ice cream parlor for years eventually can't stomach another scoop. So it was with some surprise that I found myself on the board of the Don Thompson Film Festival.
Recently I finished writing a script with Devon Kirkpatrick. We sent it to a potential manager, who said, "This seems really gay. I just don't think it's a big deal to be gay anymore. ... Don't you watch Modern Family?" So I shouldn't bother writing a film with a bunch of queers in it?
The more I spoke out against online piracy, the more correspondence I began to receive from our film fans around the world. Some explained that they simply wanted the opportunity to watch our films. To that end we are excited to announce WolfeOnDemand.com.
I talked with five more filmmakers about their films playing at the Boston LGBT Film Festival, which runs through May 13. I also had the opportunity to talk with the filmmakers about crucial issues facing our LGBT community.
I talk with Bishop Gene Robinson and director Macky Alston about their documentary Love Free or Die, director Wendy Jo Carlton about her film Jamie and Jessie Are Not Together, and director Brendan Fay about his documentary Taking a Chance on God.
Wolfe has been working behind the scenes on an initiative to secure an "LGBT" category heading as part of all digital distribution platforms. This undertaking is just the latest highlight in Wolfe's ongoing mission to facilitate the broadest possible access to our rich cinematic heritage.
