Just launched – help us reach our goal to film on-location in Orlando. Thank you. And please help spread the word.
The official trailer for Tracking Fire, the documentary that chronicles the UpStairs Lounge fire and the Pulse nightclub shootings – the worst mass-murders in LGBT history in the U.S. The parallels between these two tragedies are heartbreaking, far too similar and significantly different in how public leaders are responding. In light of these profound significances, we have restructured Tracking Fire to combine the stories of the UpStairs Lounge fire and Orlando shootings. Please check back for a revised trailer coming soon.

On a sweltering June night in New Orleans, 1973, hate raged up the steps of a gay bar and consumed thirty-two people. The authorities called it arson. Others claimed it was God’s own hand. No one was ever charged for the crime.
Forty-three years later, in the dark hours of a June night, hate claimed another forty-nine lives. The whole world came together in love and support.
In the end, love still wins.
I’m very pleased to announce the new fundraiser for my documentary film, Tracking Fire is now live. All donations are 100% tax-deductable and matched, dollar-for-dollar by a variety of sponsors. So really, every dollar does matter. Won’t you help us support this important project, allow us to complete filming and be a voice for those who cannot speak for themselves, and for those who want to be heard. Thank you. http://power2give.org/kentucky/Project/Detail?projectId=5022
We recently completed filming in New Orleans where we interviewed Rev. Gail Minnick, pastor of MCC New Orleans. She spoke profoundly of compassion, healing and forgiveness.
I’m so pleased to announce a new fundraiser with Indiegogo. As a non-profit, all donations are tax-deductable. We need only a small amount to reach our goal, so every contribution matters. Please donate what you can, help spread the word. Thank you so very much!
