Director Statement

We faced a lot of fear to make this film. Mere hours after the largest mass shooting in US history took place at a gay club in my hometown of Orlando, I was scheduled to film the celebration of LA Pride with Carrie. We were terrified to go. But we did, and we documented what it means to have pride in the face of fear.
