Writer Statement

This story is about developing healthy narratives within the LBGTQ=Same Gender Loving community. Creating characters the viewing audience can identify with and learn to understand their challenges using “Edutainment.”

My goal is to develop a project where not only the LBGTQ can enjoy but share and encourage family members and friends to watch a story of love, heartache, and triumph. It is healthy for People of Color LBGTQ to play an active role in developing multi-cultural characters in the necessity of complexity.

It's not just you being paid as a writer. It's production assistants having a job. It's actors getting hired. It creates opportunities for up-and-coming Directors and creates employment for location scouts, catering, wardrobe, makeup, gaffers, van drivers, etc. Our screenplays can help people go home with a paycheck.

I envision three consecutive seasons Family, Youth, Aging.

I welcome the opportunity to submit my screenplay and many more to come.
